Cancer data for the U.S. released

Cancer data for the U.S. released

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their most recent cancer data a few days ago. It’s the numbers for 2010, which feels dated. However, the annual data goes back to 1999, across demographics and states, which makes this data worth a look. You can download the delimited files here.

A browser accompanies the release, as shown below. It’s really just that though, leaving analysis up to you, and it’s rough around the edges.

According to the WHO, 7.6 million people worldwide died from cancer in 2008 and more approximately 70% of cancer deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries — more than 5 million deaths per year in developing countries from cancer.
KEI notes that there have been attacks on India, in its efforts to expand access to patented cancer drugs.
History will not look kindly on those who contribute to medical #apartheid, as regards #cancer and other deadly illnesses.
