Liver cancer cases have gone up considerably in the last 30 years
Liver cancer cases have gone up markedly in the last three decades. Why the rise? There are a variety of reasons including greater life expectancy (let's face it, the longer you live the more likely it is that you'll develop any one of a number of conditions--sort of goes along with the "living longer" territory) and better detection methods. However, a good part of the answer seems to be excessive alcohol use, hepatitis c infections, and obesity.
The hepatitis c part I wasn't surprised by, though it was shocking to learn that of the quarter million individuals in the UK that have been infected with hep c, about eighty percent are unaware that they have the illness.
What I found surprising was the role that obesity plays in liver cancer. Apparently, it plays a fairly big one (mind you, I was a disability examiner for DDS i.e.disability determination services and that involved reading medical records and evaluating them to determine eligibility for disability benefits; however, I am not in any way, shape, or form a medical professional with medical training).
