One Messed Up “Society”

n

From 47% of Britons will develop cancer in their lifetime by 2020

“By 2020, 47% of the population will be diagnosed with cancer at some point before they die, according to projections drawn up by Macmillan Cancer Support.”

That is one messed up society … but there is good(!) news:

“Macmillan’s analysis includes good news too, though. It anticipates that the proportion of people who survive a diagnosis of one of the 200 or so forms of cancer will reach 38%.”

And after all is said and done:

“We also recognise that we need to be looking at how we can help cancer survivors get back into their day-to-day lives after their treatment is complete.”

Britons will be able to go back to their day-to-day cancer inducing life and maybe by 2020 they will have new statistics on percentages of people who have managed to survive cancer twice  – that is before they die.

British Future Quality of Life Scale: (1) Alive; (2) Survived Cancer; (3) Has Cancer; (4) Survived Cancer Twice; (5) Has Cancer 2nd Time; (6) Dead.
