Awareness campaigns

Further to the comment below about the Cancer Research UK report pointing out that cancer is the number one killer of men and women in the UK.

The number one killer is in fact old age. 78 percent of men and 87 percent of women who died in England and Wales in 2000 were over the age of 65. So, even if these awareness campaigns had some success, they won't greatly extend people's lives. But they will increase the amount of testicle-fondling, breast-squeezing and general navel gazing.
