 Cancer in America

 

PublicHealth.org has recently published a summary report of the state of cancer in America, including information on measures people can take to protect themselves and their families from preventable cancers. 

It is predicted that by 2030, cancer will surpass heart disease as the leading cause of death in America. Although recent studies suggest that many cancers are simply a result of bad luck, there's no doubt that lifestyle choices, such as smoking and obesity, contribute directly to rising cancer rates. While messaging can be difficult, educating the public about preventable cancers is critical in the fight against this devastating disease.
