ABSTRACT
The article discusses the continuous decline of cancer death rate in the U.S. in reference to the "Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, 1975-2002". The study was jointly published by the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Atlanta-based American Cancer Society and the Springfield, Illinois-based North American Association of Central Cancer Registries. Though declines in death rates reflect progress in prevention, not all segments of the U.S. population have benefited equally from advances.
