Half of all Britons born after 1960 will get cancer: Study

  • Fifty per cent of all Britons born after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage, a new study revealed.

    Cancer Research UK, which has published the study, said that while more efforts are needed to prevent people from getting cancer, the British health services must have a plan to treat the rising number of patients.

    It also said that since cancer is mainly a disease of old age, more people are getting it because lifespan has increased.
