THE number of people with cancer is expected to grow in Spain by a staggering 30 per cent in the next 10 years.
According to new research by The International Agency for Research on Cancer, an increasingly unhealthy lifestyle means by 2020 the number of cases could be as high as 250,000.
The Ministry of Health predicts a rise of 15 per cent across Europe, bringing the figure on the continent up to
3.7 million cases in the next 10 years.
Experts have stressed the relationship between the increase in cancer and the increase in smoking, a lack of balanced diet and insufficient exercise.
By 2020 some 150,000 men in Spain will be victims, with prostrate cancer its main proponent.
