Cancer death rates have been continuously declining since the early 1990s, but cancer remains one of the leading causes of death globally. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, in 2018, there were 18.1 million new cases and 9.5 million cancer-related deaths worldwide. In 20 years, these numbers are expected to rise significantly with an estimated 29.5 million new cancer cases and 16.4 million cancer-related deaths per year. The American Cancer Society states that cancer is the second most common cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease, and is expected to take the lives of 606,520 Americans in 2020.

Cancer is a burden on our society and although the mortality rates are higher in low- and middle-income countries, no one is safe from the scary diagnosis. In a perfect world, a magical pill would cure cancer, but in reality, the only way to try and minimize the risk of it is something you’ve heard many times before. Cancer can be prevented by giving up unhealthy behaviors and lifestyles such as smoking, alcohol consumption, excess body weight, lack of physical activity, excessive exposure to the sun, etc. and getting regular checkups.
