Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

    Your medical unit is right about the dodgy cancer stats released by WHO.
    According to Japan’s Cancer Information Service, Projected Cancer Statistics for the “home of cancer” in 2018 are 1,013,600 cases with 379,900 deaths for both sexes (male 574,800; and female 438,700) which is about 500 (age standardized) per 100,000 population.

    The WHO projections for Japan at only 248.0 per 100,000 are less than a half of the actual figures.

    The cancer rates released by WHO both for the US and Australia are wildly inaccurate!

    In 2015, some 1,633,390 new cases of cancer were reported, and 595,919 people died of cancer in the United States (actual figures. That is for every 100,000 people, 438 new cancer cases were reported and 159 died of cancer.
    Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US, exceeded only by heart disease. One of every four deaths in the United States is due to cancer, according to CDC.

    In 2018, there will be an estimated 1,735,350 new cancer cases diagnosed and 609,640 cancer deaths in the United States (incorrect figure released by WHO: 352.2 per 100,000 age standardized people).

    Australia
    In 2014, the age–standardized incidence rate was 484 new cases per 100,000 persons (555 for males and 424 for females). In 2018, it is estimated that the age–standardized incidence rate will be 472 cases per 100,000 persons (529 for males and 424 for females). The incidence rate of all cancers combined is expected to increase with age for both males and females.
    In 2018, it is estimated that the rate will be 472 cases per 100,000 persons (529 for males and 424 for females).
