From 2009 to 2014, new cancer cases increased more 10 Percent. 

In the U.K., cancer rates are increasing disproportionately in women.

The number of people were diagnosed with kidney cancer in the U.K. more than doubled from the mid 1990’s through 2016.

 There’s no clear answer why this pattern has emerged.

Pancreatic cancer incidence rates in Taiwan increased 35% from 1999 to 2012.

In the UK, around 5,500 people were diagnosed with kidney cancer each year in the mid-1990s, but this has now more than doubled, hitting about 11,900 a year.

 Death rates from liver cancer have doubled in the United States since the mid-1980s.

The overall rates for colorectal cancer have been going down for several decades with the exception of one group; young white patients.

“The research team did not uncover the exact cause of this rise; however, these findings may be due to more young people not exercising or eating well.”

Specifically in the U.K., bowel cancer rates among younger people have gone up 48 per cent since 2004.

Deborah Alsina, chief executive of Bowel Cancer UK, has told Express.co.uk why this could be the case, and how people can be aware of the disease.

“There are specific groups at higher risk of bowel cancer,” she said.

Thyroid cancer increased 140 percent from 1973 to 2002.

 Women are three times as likely to develop the disease as men.

In 2006, researchers concluded the increase was simply a result of “increased diagnostic scrutiny.”

There has been a 25% increase in breast cancers since 1975.

As of this year, white women had the highest rate of breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Rates are also Rising Among Japanese Women.

The overall rates for colorectal cancer have been going down for several decades with the exception of one groupyoung white patients.

 The reason is a mystery.

From 1975 to 2007, oral cancer increased 28% among people 18 to 44 years of age. Among white people in this age group, the incidence increased 67%. The rising rates were most dramatic for white women, with a jump of 111%.

At this time, two types of skin cancer are on the rise among women, according to a report published by Mayo Clinic. The rate of new cases of squamous cell carcinoma rose 263 percent among women between 2000 and 2010 and rose 145 percent in the general population.

 Women 30-49 experienced the greatest increase.

The rate of new cases of squamous cell carcinoma rose 263 percent among women between 2000 and 2010 and rose 145 percent in the general population.

The maternal mortality rate for Millennial women has more than doubled since the baby-boom generation.

The overdose rate for women has more than quadrupled since 1999 after decades of stasis.

The suicide rate for women ― particularly white and American Indian women ― has increased by 43 percent over the past decade.

There were 495,000 deaths in England in 2015, a 5.5% increase in one year, the biggest year-on-year increase in deaths since the 1960s.

There was a larger increase in female death rates than males.

The increase in mortality rates in 2015 was not limited to England alone. It was seen across Europe on a comparable scale

Compared with 2014, overall male mortality increased in 57% of EU nations, and, even more disturbingly, female mortality rose in 82% of the EU – a full quarter more for women vs. men.

In the U.S., rising mortality rates for whites are explained by “Opioids and obesity.

 

 

 

 

March 22, 2011 – Oral Tongue Cancer Rates Rising in Young White Women – Medscape

The incidence of oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma has been rising in young white American women, according to a new report. For the past 3 decades, the incidence has been increasing in white men and white women 18 to 44 years of age, but the trend is most pronounced in young white women.

In a report published online March 7 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the authors found that the incidence of oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma was declining for all age groups. The incidence of oral cavity and tongue cancer also was decreasing for nonwhite individuals.

However, among people 18 to 44 years of age, the incidence of oral tongue cancer climbed 28% between 1975 and 2007. Among white people in this age group, the incidence increased 67%. The rising rates were most dramatic for white women, with a jump of 111%.

 

February 27, 2012 – A new study has linked popular sleeping pills such as Ambien and Restoril with a nearly five-fold increased risk of early death.

Researchers at Scripps Health, a nonprofit health system in San Diego, estimate that in 2010, sleeping pill use may have contributed to up to 500,000 “excess deaths” in the United States. Heavy users aren’t the only ones at risk—even people who took fewer than two pills monthly are three times more likely to die than non-users, researchers say.

The study followed 10,000 sleeping pill users and 23,500 non-users in Pennsylvania between 2002 and 2006. About 1 percent of non-users died during that time, compared to 6 percent of sleeping pill users.

“We were pretty startled by the findings,” says Robert Langer, one of the authors of the study, which was published in BMJ, a British medical journal owned by the British Medical Association. “Since we started trying to qualify the results of this analysis about a year ago, I’ll tell you, my prescription bottle for Ambien has sat on the shelf unopened.”

We thought maybe sleeping pills are being prescribed for sicker people, so we tried to take that out of the mix in several different ways,” Langer says. “The risk was the same whichever way we looked at it. To me, that was the most startling finding. It blows things like high cholesterol or diabetes out of the water.”

 

March 27, 2013 – The headlines about a rise in advanced breast cancer cases among young women have been attention-getting, to be sure.

July 20, 2017 – U.K. – Since 2001, there has been a general improvement in the age-standardised mortality rate. However, since 2011 the rate fluctuated more and the rate of improvement seems to be less than in the period from 2001 to 2011. There was also a clear increase in the rate in 2015.

The mortality rates in England between 2012 and 2014 were slightly higher than would have been expected if the earlier downward trend had continued unchanged. The rates for 2015 and 2016 were around 10% higher than we would expect.

What happened in 2015?

There were 495,000 deaths in England in 2015, just over 26,000 more than in 2014.

(They gave you the numbers, but withheld the percentage, as printing it would have been more impactful. So I had to do the math. It’s a 5.5% increase in mortality, in one year. – ed)

This was the biggest year-on-year increase in deaths since the 1960s.

ONS issued a provisional report on deaths in 2015, noting that there was a spike in deaths at the start of the year, which coincided with the peak in flu activity during the winter of 2014/15.

There was a significant increase in the mortality rate in 2015, with most of the ‘extra’ deaths that year seen in people aged 75 and over.

And there was a larger increase in female death rates than males, and most of the increase in deaths in people aged 75 and over was made up of deaths with a certified underlying cause of dementia/Alzheimer’s disease or respiratory diseases, including flu and pneumonia.

International evidence

The increase in mortality rates in 2015 was not limited to England alone. It was seen across Europe on a comparable scale. The six biggest countries in the European Union (France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, UK), all saw a fall in their life expectancies for both sexes.

Compared with 2014, in 2015 female life expectancy at birth fell in 23 of the 28 countries in the EU and male life expectancy at birth fell in 16 EU countries.

(23 of 28 vs. 16 of 28 – 82% vs. 57%. They chopped the numbers all up and refused to print the percentages or speak clearly about the matter, and made me do the math, because the clearer sentence is far more damning to their agenda. Let’s read it together:  “Compared with 2014, overall male mortality increased in 57% of EU nations, and, even more disturbingly, female mortality rose in 82% of the EU – a full quarter more.” – ed

In contrast, when 2014 was compared with 2013, only 2 countries had a decrease in female life expectancy, and 5 had a decrease for males.

Even more countries had falls in life expectancy at older ages in 2015. For females, life expectancy at age 65 fell in 25 EU countriesand it fell in 21 countries for males.

These data from Eurostat, the EU agency for European statistics, support what has been reported elsewhere by European statistical agencies: increased mortality in 2015 which disproportionately affected older people, and older women more than older men. Additionally, many countries reported an increase in deaths in the early part of 2015. The United States also reported a fall in life expectancy of 0.1 years in 2015.

This international evidence suggests that whatever factors caused the increase in deaths in England in 2015, also affected many other countries.

In England, cases of transitional cell carcinoma have stayed relatively stable over the last decade.

But the number of people diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma has risen. It now accounts for just over 8 in 10 kidney cancers.

There’s no clear answer why this pattern has emerged. But renal cell carcinoma is linked to smoking and obesity, offering a couple of avenues for further investigation.

A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association first brought this issue to light in 2006. Researchers concluded that the reported 140 percent increase in thyroid cancer from 1973 to 2002 was simply a result of “increased diagnostic scrutiny.”

But the mortality rate is a little more complicated than that. Survival rates, after five years, increased 4.7 percent in women, who are three times as likely to develop the disease as men, from 1974 to 2001.
