Health professionals have expressed alarm over an alarming rise in cancer cases among millennials (those born between 1980s and late 90s). This rise contrasts with decreasing rates among older age groups. What’s going on here?

Since 1990, cancer cases among those under 50 have seen a dramatic spike. Recent data from Financial Times indicates this fact by showing cancer rates among 25- to 29-year-olds living in G20 industrialized nations have increased 22% between 1990 and 2019.

Researchers are actively investigating all of the factors contributing to this worrying trend, from nutrition and lifestyle changes, as well as potential shifts in microbiomes that play an essential part in overall health, to early cancer onset with its accompanying costs and productivity losses; experts underscore the need for further study in order to fully comprehend and treat its causes.
