The WHO (World Health Organization) had a warning recently about the “tidal wave” of cancer cases the globe will be facing. The prediction is that the number of cancer cases will reach 24 million a year by 2035 and said that 1/2 of the cases could be prevented.

The three main cases mentioned in the BBC article are:

  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Drinking

The article pointed out that most people just don’t understand the role diet plays in the role of cancer and that the developing world will bear the brunt of the extra cases.
