World Cancer Day 2009

Today is World Cancer Day.

Cancer is a leading cause of death around the world. The WHO estimates that 84 million people will die of cancer between 2005 and 2015 without intervention.

The World Cancer Day promotes ways to ease the global burden of cancer.

From the UICC webpage:

"On 4 February, World Cancer Day, the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) will launch “I love my healthy active childhood”, the second full-year theme in our “Today’s children, tomorrow’s world” cancer prevention campaign."
