What percentage of people have cancer in the world?
The current estimated human population for the planet earth in 2010 is 6,865,300,000 by the United States Census Bureau. The United Nations estimates that world population will be over the 7,000,000,000 mark in 2011. Recent U.N. organized surveys performed in multiple countries have found the average percentage of people who suffer from some sort of cancer is 31%. The American Cancer Society has found similar numbers in its studies of North and South America.
Using these two sources of information. One can estimate that 2,128,243,000 individuals in the year 2010, will have some sort of cancer.

Hi, as a left hander myself ive had an interest in this, im led to believe through the media we are 1 in every 10 on average. If it interests you, you can search the net for more info about lefties, we were considered half wits, evil doers, witches or the male counterpart, hence some of the unkind…ly nicknames such as kackhanded etc, basically the history of lefties has been pretty grim, with no tolerance from the right handed majority, these prejudices carried right through the Victorian era into about the 1930s-1940s, luckily now attitudes have changed....i hope....(otherwise someone will feel my southpaw) lol. Also their is a theory that we are the survivor of mirror twins, when our right handed bro or sis may have been lost in very early pregnancy, & we were the survivor.... this is only a theory though!! Answer Both my husband, an identical twin with a right-handed brother, and my son, a fraternal twin with a right handed sister are left handed. There is a stirore in London which sells stuff for left handed foldk and we have a left-handed milkpan and a left handed can opener. though funnily enough the right-handers in the family find the left-handed opener easier to use while husband uses the right-handed one. http://www.anythingleft-handed.co.UK/ (MORE)

Approximately 40.8 percent of men and women could be diagnosed withcancer at some point in their life. As of 2011, there were about13,397,159 people living with all cancer sites in the UnitedStates.
It is always increasing. the odds are 1 out of 3 people. Too high...My Gma has cancer. Three relatives have passed from it. Doublecheck my figures, but here's what I get... Approx. 0.25% in the USA (about 759,562 out of 303,824,640 people) Approx. 0.18% worldwide (about 12,000,000 out of 6,706,99…3,000 people) (Sorry, but I can't remember how to break it down into simpler terms, ex. # out of # people. Maybe someone else will.) Total new cases for 2008=1,437,180--that is just in the USA. Approx. 1/3 will die from it. The American Cancer Society estimates that there are 12,000,000 (12 million) cases worldwide. Wikipedia reports that there were approx. 6,706,993,000 (6.7 billion) people in the world as of July 1,2008. So,...0.18% (about 1/3 of one percent) of cancer patients worldwide. The US population (from cia.gov website) was 303,824,640 as of July 2008. I couldn't find specific data showing the total number of cancer patients just in the United States, so, for the US, the amount of people diagnosed with cancer in 2008 is 0.47% (about 1/2 of one percent). (1,437,180 divided by 303,824,640 times 100). Therefore, you could figure that, if there were 0.47% each year from 1930-2008, and 1/3 of them have died, then the total approximate living cancer patients would be 0.24%. (2008 minus 1930 equals 78 (years) times 0.47 (%) equals 0.37 (%) (total patients) minus 1/3 of that (0.12%) equals 0.25% current cancer patients). (303,824,640 times 0.25% equals 759,562 people) Goto www.cancer.org This is the American Cancer Society's website. They have statistic reports you can download to see the number of cases that came up in 2008 and what kinds of cancer they were. You can see the number of deaths in 2008, deaths from 1930 through 2004 for men and a chart for women, and several more. This site is very detailed. (MORE)
it is approximated that 31% of people in the world suffer from cancer, however this is just an estimate as most third world countries do not have the medical experience, education, or equipment to diagnose cancer so its safe to assume its probably higher. Kind of a scary figure :S
There is many white (light skinned) people in the world. To have a close estimate or exact, there is around 8.85% of those considered white people in the world.

Difficult to ascertain; as it is dependent on a person being truly honest with themselves, and also how the term racism is defined. Some people consider racism as the oppression of dark-skinned people as perpetrated by whites. Some consider racism as any sort of favoritism, or disfavor, shown tow…ard a person based on their skin color. Others may consider that racism is a prejudice against a person of a particular ethnicity. If you consider that perhaps all people have some degree of racist tendency at some stage during their life, the figure can probably be placed at close to 100%. (MORE)

Cancer continues to be a major disease for those in developed countries. The numbers for those that are dying of cancer in the world are increasing. 2007 was one of the last years recorded, and 7.9 million people died of cancer. That number is slated to increase to 11.5 million by the year 2030. For… the developed countries, cancer is the second largest reason for death. Only heart disease beats cancer in killing people in the Western world and in those countries that are considered "modern". The World Health Organization says that forty percent of cancer can be prevented. They recommend avoiding tobacco, being obese, alcohol abuse, sexually transmitted diseases and carcinogens at the workplace. Lung cancer is the one type of cancer that kills the most people throughout the world. Tobacco is the culprit in this statistic. The details for how many people die from cancer based on their country is not surprising. Two million in China are killed each year by cancer. Part of this is attributed to the increased urbanization and the adoption of Western diets. In the United Kingdom about 230,000 people die of cancer every year. An estimate of 17,000 of these people die of colon cancer and 6000 die of pancreatic cancer in the United Kingdom. One very sad statistic is that 3,000 people in the United States die every year just from second hand cigarette smoke. The total for every cancer death except nonmelanoma skin cancer in the United States is over 565,000 people. Lung cancer is first among the killer cancers in the United States. The unreported fact is that the invisible gas radon accounts for 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year for the United States. In Australia, 12,000 people die of cancer every year. Skin cancer is a large part of that number. For Japan, over 336,000 people die in that country from cancer and most of these have lung cancer. In Pakistan, 85,000 die of cancer. In Brazil, over 25,000 die from this disease yearly. The killer disease we call cancer strikes around the world and is getting stronger by the day. Will the medical industry be able to rediscover the cure? Let's hope so. If not, maybe those who smoke tobacco will learn that it is quite literally killing them, this shows that the number of people who have died already is almost impossible to find out , and many more are suffering and dying now.

The exact number of multilingual people in the world is impossible to know for sure because there are several factors that define the term "multilingual." The most common way to describe someone as multilingual is someone who can effectively communicate in more than one language. The percentage of p…eople who fall into this category is well over 50%. The number drops somewhat if your definition is limited to "simultaneous multilingual" people. These are people that use more than one language at a native level of fluency. We see this in the children of immigrants, like the many millions of Latinos that grow up in the United States who can speak both Spanish and English perfectly, and in people that live in an area where a minority language is spoken, like the Basques in Spain who are simultaneously bilingual in Basque and Spanish.
