Press Association - The number of people dying from three of the most common cancers has fallen to its lowest level in nearly 40 years, figures show. UK death rates from breast, bowel, and male lung cancer are at their lowest since 1971.

The fall in deaths, compiled by Cancer Research UK, is being put down to improved screening and better care. Experts said the decline in smoking had also played a key part in the drop in lung cancer. . .

The figures come despite the rising number of diagnoses because of the ageing population.

Or the decrease could be resultant to better diet and the miraculous effects of cannabis.
