Report finds continued decline of cancer deaths in U.S.
Cancer mortality rates among men, women and children up to age 14 dropped every year from 2000 to 2009, continuing the downward trend that started in the 1990s, a report in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed. New cancer diagnoses dropped in men and remained unchanged in women, but pediatric cancer diagnoses rose by 0.6% during the study period. WebMD (1/7), HealthDay News (1/7)
