Dunno about Bonde but I always kinda told myself I'd never have a blog because I don't read them much and think the whole phenomenon is a little weird and self-indulgent.
No cases registered-based on a death certificate only were included in the study.
Cases without any follow-up information represent 21%, varying between 16–25% for different cancers.
The average annual age-standardized incidence rate is 222 per 100 000 among males and 206 per 100 000 among females with a lifetime cumulative risk of one in 4 of developing cancer for both sexes in the period 1993–1997.
The top ranking cancers among males are lung, liver and prostate.
