Cancer has been known to be the #2nd biggest killer in developed countries while it takes the crown to become the #1 in the underdeveloped. Though there aren’t any ground breaking solutions for cancer, the latter stages of it can be prevented by early detections and medications. But the treatments that come with exorbitant bills prove to become unachievable for the under developing countries, which lead to massive death rates. Dig into the matter and cancer is mostly the consequence of poor diet and lifestyle habits, and also the lack of information regarding the symptoms. Cancer is deadly and can affect almost any part of the body and a very small percentage of it is caused by genetic links. Cancer never really goes well with anyone diagnosed with it, worst of which is when kids are affected.

Switching gears and looking into the cause of deaths in the music and movie industry, there are a number of artists who have lost their battles against cancer. Though some of them recovered and were blessed to be given a second chance at life, actors like Paul Newman, Farah Fawcett, Alan Rickman, and Dennis Hopper, who were gone too soon due to cancer. Musicians like David Bowie, Bob Marley, and Frank Sinatra are few names who shook the music industry by their sudden deaths because of cancer.
