French President Emmanuel Macron has marked World Cancer Day by announcing a ten-year strategy to reduce deaths from the disease by 50 percent. French funding for cancer research is to be boosted by one fifth, with campaigns planned against the excessive consumption of both alcohol and tobacco. Currently, 150,000 French people die every year from cancer. President Macron wants to target the "avoidable" forms of the disease, and reduce that figure to 100,000.
