The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which has published its findings in the medical journal Lancet Oncology, says the numbers recorded in cancer registries around the world have gone up since the 1980s. Between 2001-2010, there were 140 children in every million who were diagnosed with cancer under the age of 14, which represents a 13 per cent increase.
Mazagan Beach and Golf Resort is regarded as one of the most luxurious preferred destinations for tourists who are looking for an Arabian environment.
