Everyday people are diagnosed with cancer
but it may not be as much of a threat as it used to be. I’m Shelby Cullinan with your
latest health news. A new study found that over the past two decades,
the cancer death rate has dropped significantly in the US. This study, which was an annual
cancer statistics report from the American Cancer Society, found that fewer people overall
died from cancer, but the numbers varied widely by location and type of cancer. These researchers
said that the drop in cancer mortality was likely due to fewer people smoking and major
advancements in cancer treatment and prevention.
