Cancer 2015

Cancer. No word today summons more horror. In 2012, there were 14 million cases worldwide and if trends hold, by 2030, there will be 22 million. About 8 million die annually from the disease. But with every year, the scientific puzzles of the illness become slightly less disarrayed, and many believe our understanding of the cancer is on the verge of a seismic shift. There’s a very real chance that, in the next two decades, we may be able to reverse the course of this dread disease.

Newsweek's 2015 Cancer issue explores the challenges and innovations in cancer treatment and research, from radiowaves and nanotechnology to the debate over rising drug costs. The complete issue will be available in newsstands and on digital platforms from July 24.
