A tip of the hat to the Daily Mail for posting a piece on its front page yesterday, following the revelation that prostate cancer deaths had overtaken breast cancer deaths. Another tip of the hat for covering prostate cancer again today, in pieces taking up the front page and the whole of another page – here.
A third tip of the hat to Amanda Platell, a columnist for the paper, for her comments on the subject – here. Also for these two short pieces, when you scroll down:

Radio 4’s Today Show
