In this month’s podcast, we take a look at new statistics showing that cancer rates are rising alarmingly in middle-aged people, and bowel cancer risk has doubled for men.

Plus we announce a new project aimed at cracking the cancer code, and investigate why weight has a hefty impact on cancer-causing hormones in older women. And we find out how a clever sponge on a string could help oesophageal cancer screening.
