The number of people suffering from cancer has soared since the 1970s, a leading health charity has warned.
According to data released by Cancer Research UK:
- In 1975 around 295 of every 100,000 people were diagnosed with some form of cancer.
- This number rose to almost 400 by 2011.
- Cancer Research blamed an ageing population and lifestyle factors, like excessive drinking or being overweight for the rise.
- While the rates are going up, the number of people surviving the disease is also on the rise.
- In the 1970s just 23% of cancer patients survived for 10 years, this climbed to 46% in 2007.
