In Italy, the last year has been diagnosed further 373,000 new cases of cancer, more than 1000 per day. Forecasts for the next few years show that By 2030, cancer will be the leading cause of death in the world with 21.6 million new cases a year.
Doctors and researchers face this emergency by studying methods for increasingly frequent and for diagnosis more and more personal treatments which in the last two decades has helped to do reduce mortality steadily. In Italy, in particular, today is more healed, as evidenced by the information that places us highest in Europe for healing. Five years of survival has increased, both for men (54% vs. 51%) that for women (63% versus 60%) compared with the previous five-year period.

The face of Chocolates of Research is the little Vivian who invites us to choose this special gift to support her father's work, the scientist Thomas Vaccari, who returned to Italy thanks to an AIR loan and the work of all other researchers. Together with the chocolate box, the special guide will also be distributed with valuable information on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
