In a breaking story, the Daily Mail reports that almost 300,000 cancer diagnoses were made in the UK in 2015, which is a rise of 22% from 2005, according to the Office for National Statistics. The Mail suggests that an ageing population is thought to be to blame.
BUT surely lifestyle, including diet and exercise play a part too, as evidenced by rising obesity rates? Also UK cancer care is seriously behind other advanced countries like Germany and France – why?
Surely, it’s time for a radical review of the effectiveness of UK public healthcare spending?
