It Is Being Projected That New Cases Of Cancer In The U.S. Will Explode To A Brand New Record High This Year (2 Million In 2024)


by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

We are witnessing an explosion of cancer in the United States that is absolutely unprecedented.  As you will see below, it is being projected that the number of new cases of cancer in the U.S. will hit a brand new record high this year, and cancer rates are rising particularly rapidly among our young people.  There have been so many prominent individuals in the news that have been diagnosed with cancer recently, and so many people that I personally know have also been diagnosed with cancer recently.  I am sure that most of you also personally know people that have been affected by this disease.  Of course cancer has been one of the leading causes of death for a very long time, but we have never witnessed anything quite like this.


According to the American Cancer Society, this year the number of newly diagnosed cases of cancer will surpass  the 2 million mark for the first time ever

Cancer incidence, however, is on the rise for many common cancers. In the coming year, we’re expecting to hit a bleak milestone—the first time new cases of cancer in the US are expected to cross the 2-million mark. That’s almost 5,500 cancer diagnoses a day.

This trend is largely affected by the aging and growth of the population and by a rise in diagnoses of 6 of the 10 most common cancers—breast, prostate, endometrial, pancreatic, kidney, and melanoma. (The other 4 top 10 cancers are lung, colon and rectum, bladder, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.)

This is such a great tragedy.

Millions of Americans are dying way too early.

Once upon a time, cancer was considered to be a disease that would strike in old age, but now cancer rates among our young people are absolutely exploding

According to a new study published this week in BMJ Oncology, cancer rates worldwide have risen dramatically in people under the age of 50.

Researchers examined data from 204 countries between 1990 and 2019. They found that there were more than 3.26 million early-onset cancer cases reported in those countries in 2019, up from 1.82 million in 1990, an increase of 79.1%.

The study defined early-onset cancer as a diagnosis that occurs between the ages of 14 and 49.

I don’t know why researchers only looked at numbers through 2019.

Personally, I would love to see what the figures for the last several years look like.

But everyone agrees that cancer rates among young people are surging like never before.

For example, one study discovered that the number of women under the age of 25 being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer has increased by close to 200 percent since the 1990s

A ‘frightening’ explosion of young women developing one of the deadliest cancers has baffled experts.

Rates of pancreatic cancer have soared by up to 200 per cent in women under the age of 25 since the 1990s.

Overall, incidences of the disease — which has a five-year survival rate of just 5 per cent — have increased by around 17 per cent over the same time-span, with soaring obesity rates suspected to be behind the trend.

Young people are also getting colon cancer at a staggering rate.

In fact, it is being projected that the number of young people under the age of 40 that will die from colon cancer each year will double by the year 2030

These findings come at a time when colon cancer deaths among people under 40 are expected to double by 2030, and it is projected to be the number one cause of cancer deaths in young people by the end of the decade.

Overall, rates of all types of gastrointestinal cancer among our young people are skyrocketing, and this has experts deeply alarmed…

Gastrointestinal cancer diagnoses in Americans under 50 climbed drastically over a decade, with the starkest rise occurring in under-19s, at 109 percent.

And the number of GI cancers among children under 19 more than doubled from 2010 to 2019 and overall incidence of GI cancers among under-50s rose by 15 percent.

GI cancers include those in the stomach, esophagus, colon and rectum, liver, pancreas, anus, gall bladder, and small intestine.

The fact that so many young people are getting cancer will mean lots of cash for the cancer industry during the years ahead.

According to the CDC, more than 240 billion dollars will be spent on cancer care in the United States on a yearly basis by 2030.
