Interrelation between western type cancers and non-western type cancers as regards their risk variations in time and space. VI: Chronological transition of various cancer risks of the world from 1975 to 1985.
We comparatively investigated the age-adjusted incidence rates (AAIRs) of overall cancers of the world between 1975 and 1985 to see whether or not any consistent change is in progress in the risk for cancer in general on a world scale.
Results obtained are summarized as follows:
1) the total male population of the world, but not the total female population, experienced a significant rise in AAIIR for cancers of all sites during the above 10 years.
