BullWhappy: Creative Math

80% of children with cancer live in developing countries where effective treatment is not available. More than one in two will die.

What does that mean "more than one in two" -
One whole kid and a fractional part of the other kid dies?

 The other 20 % doesn't count?

Guess what, they die here in the States too.  

What "effective" treatment are they talking about?


In developed countries about 75% of children with cancer survive, but in resource-constrained countries most children do not.

What they don’t mention is how long they “survive.”
Other than leukemia, you're lucky if you get five years, extremely lucky.
