Cancer More Worrying Than Terrorism for Youth

Fri May 10, 2002

LONDON (Reuters) - Children are more worried about losing a parent or loved one to cancer than they are about terrorism or the war in Afghanistan, according to findings from a UK poll released on Friday.

Nearly 41 percent of children in England and Wales know someone who has had the disease and two-thirds are more concerned about cancer than terrorist attacks.

"Cancer it seems, has become one of the major worries of a generation," said Dr. Lesley Walker of the charity, Cancer Research UK, which commissioned the poll.
