Timeline: the Fight against Cancer

In this interactive timeline we compiled the main milestones in the history of the fight against cancer: from the Egyptians and their differentiation between malignant and benign tumors (by 1500 BC), to the lastest suspicions about red and processed meat and its relation with cancer, recently published in 2016.


The history of the fight against cancer is not over, but navigating this interactive timeline will allow you to understand how much progress we have made, and perhaps, shortly, we can add new milestones and a closing slide. Click here to access the interactive content.
