by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 21, 2013

Special Report – “According to the latest national data, overall death rates from cancer declined from 2000 through 2009 in the United States, maintaining a trend seen since the early 1990s. Mortality fell for most cancer types, including the four most common types of cancer in the United States (lung, colon and rectum, breast, and prostate), although the trend varied by cancer type and across racial and ethnic groups. The complete Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975–2009 appeared January 7, 2013 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.”
