I am not sure what to make of this. I read about the study in the U.K. “Daily Mail” my primary source of news. I then went to the original source to make sure it was kosher.

It is a credible institution. I have come across them before. They are associated with the ‘University of Washington‘ and get funding from the Bill Gates’ charitable foundation.

What concerns me about these findings is the accuracy of the data provided — by the countries. That the lowest levels are among ‘developing’ countries while the highest rates are among the ‘developed’ countries give me pause for thought.

How many cases in rural areas go untreated and as such undocumented and unreported?

But, it is also possible that we have lower incidence of cancer — though, of course, I know Sri Lankans who have had cancer.

I am just bringing it to your attention.
