More than half of adults are now expected to get cancer at some point in their life, research shows.
The risk is increasing so quickly that experts fear as many as two-thirds of today’s children will develop the disease.
Just as an example, smallpox used to kill 20 million a year globally. So we could say that the eradication of smallpox has led to 10 million people a year getting cancer.
Sounds like a bargain to me.
