    It’s probably because they finally stopped sprinkling water on the floor as the swept.

    It would be much higher than that if they had autopsied all of the millions of suicides each year.

    Based on this article, Korea is only about 15% behind the US now (in terms of new cancer diagnoses per 100,000 population/per year). They are roughly equal to the US, however, in 5-year survival rates (aggregate, all cancer types).

    I think yellow dust from China has something to do with the uptick. Maybe it only makes a tiny difference . . . or maybe it’s huge.

    It’s to be expected given that about 70% of Korean men smoked and that the population is aging.

    You mean smoke. And you have no proof. Where’s your proof, poof?
