During the past decades, Germany has seen a dramatic change in its population structure. This has influenced the number of cancer cases projected for the future. In addition, various studies demonstrate that awareness of cancer prevention is high in Germany and that is good news.
Many programs are working in Germany to achieve the same, and the recent one in the news is “Todesursache”, the name literally translates as “the cause of death”. This site is focused on the causes of the deaths of Germans and other famous celebrities.
The goal is to bring to light the diseases that caused the death of celebrities and in this way, their fans get to take preventive measures.
In addition to lung cancer, the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in Germany are breast cancer and liver cancer. These cancers have been the focus of prevention programs. However, prostate cancer will surpass breast cancer in 2030.
While the total mortality rate has been declining since 2000, the mortality rates for women and men are still higher than the European Union average. This relative difference is smaller for younger people.
In addition, a study found that a large number of years of life lost in Germany was due to young age bands. The BURDEN 2020 project conducted wide-ranging analyses of years of life lost in Germany. Its methods are now integrated into future non-communicable disease surveillance. The study methods are also available as an interactive visualization tool.
The study shows that German patients with cancer have higher relative survival rates than patients in the United States. However, further research is needed to understand the factors behind this difference.
The study also shows that the rate of cancer incidence in Germany is higher than in the United States. In fact, the rate of liver cancer in Germany has increased by 50 percent over the last 30 years. This is due to changes in smoking habits.
The Todesursache.com is all about this and it is leaving a great positive impact on its readers.
