A government report out today shows that gains are being made in the war on cancer.  Both new cancer cases and new cancer deaths are down.  It’s estimated that almost 1.5 million Americans will get a new cancer diagnosis this year, and more the 562,000 people will die from cancer.  Sobering statistics to be sure, but a marked improvement on years past. 

The American Cancer Society has put together a section on prevention and early detection for cancer.  It gives many specifics about what you can do to protect yourself.  Click HERE to visit their website.

And ABC News has a section on prevention and treatment as well.  Click HERE for more.
