World Cancer Day – The International Diabetes Federation European Region (IDF Europe) stands alongside the international cancer control community in the common fight against two major non-communicable diseases

4 February 2016, World Cancer Day

Cancer and diabetes caused the death of over two million Europeans in 2015. Poor diet, lack of physical activity, tobacco smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and environmental factors such as chemical pollutants but also social isolation and stress are among the diseases’ long list of common risk factors. Furthermore, people who have diabetes are at high risk of developing certain types of cancer.

Almost 60 million people have diabetes. If we do not act now, this figure will reach 71 million by 2040

23.5 million are undiagnosed people, who are at higher risk of developing harmful and costly complications

Diabetes has caused 3627,000 deaths in 2015

About one quarter (26.3%) of those deaths were in people under the age of 60
