This follows good news on 29th October:

Over the last ten years, the overall risk of dying from cancer (the age-adjusted cancer mortality rate) has fallen by 10%, a decrease of 12% for males and 7% for females. The number of annual cancer deaths has increased over the same period. This is largely because the number of older people, who are at greater risk of developing cancer, has increased.
