What if there were 100 people on earth living with cancer?

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) estimates that there were 17 million new cancer cases in 2018 worldwide. By 2040, the global burden is expected to grow to 27.5 million new cancer cases, with 16.3 million deaths; simply down to population growth and aging. Factoring in the increased prevalence of risk factors such as smoking, unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyles in developing countries that burden is lively to be higher.
