Between 1950 and the beginning of the 21st century, the mortality rates for cancer did not significantly improve.

There are wide gaps between the disease incidence (0.16%), disease burden (5.6 %), and the mortality caused by cancer (12.5 %).1 However, in countries with a wide diversity of plant life, there have been intensified efforts to discover natural cancer therapeutics.
