Interactive map of cancer mortality risk around the world
What emerges from looking at the mortality rates of different cancers is the uneven distribution. For example, liver cancer is a blight on the people of Mongolia, a consequence of high rates of hepatitis C and B combined with alcohol, but barely registers in other countries. The other visualisations in this series, which is based on data from Globocan , take a closer look at each region. As well as variation from region-to-region and country-to-country there can also be considerable variation within each nation.
