1- There are too many inconsistencies in the article.
Firstly, The article’s headline says that one in four Britons will get cancer but after headline, article says that MORE than one in four Britons will get cancer. Also, the third paragraph says that figures obtained by Macmillan Cancer Support show 42 per cent of us will develop cancer, if it will be, the article should say that when it happens, but there is no information about this. In addition to this, if 42 per cent of Britons will develop cancer, why the headline says ” one in four ” ? Besides, the 6th paragraph says that there are currently two million people in Britain with the illness and this is excepted to double within the next 20 years.However, there is no supporting information about this claim. If one in four Britons will get cancer; there will 16 million people with cancer within 2074. ( We say it this much certain because population growth rate is almost stabile in U.K. *) Due to text did not give us more explanatory information like this, 6th paragraph seems pretty nonfoundational.
a)More than one in four Britons will get cancer.
b) Figures obtained by Macmillan cancer support show 42 per cent of us will develop cancer.
c) Some 64 per cent of sufferers will eventually die from it.
d) There will be four million people that have cancer in next 20 years.
2-B) There are no claim which justified the article.
3- We have no assumptions from our own general knowledge about this topic.
4- Living longer can cause more cancer because getting cancer is a probability. When people live longer , they have more risk. Also, Naturality be damaged day by day. Foods which are genetically modified and especially electronic apparatus and appliances threaten our health .
5- Due to increasing proportion of the population having cancer, scientist can be more motivated to find solution for cancer.
