Cancer: When health, wealth or death do us part Scientists have identified the mechanism that allows breast cancer cells to lie dormant in other parts of the body only to reemerge years later with lethal force, according to a study published Tuesday. (Shutterstock/ksokolowska)

PREMIUM Are you ready to get scared? A study says that one in two adults will receive a cancer diagnosis during their lifetime. That’s the bad news. 

The “good” news is that the study was published in the British Journal of Cancer in 2015, and is about those born in the United Kingdom in 1960. 

That’s bad. So one in six sounds pretty good huh...
