American Cancer Society (ACS) releases global cancer report

 

Some interesting highlights from the report: 

    * Breast cancer is now the leading cause of cancer death for women in developing countries.  Previously, cervical cancer killed more women. Reasons for these rising trends are not completely understood but likely reflect changes in reproductive patterns, obesity, physical inactivity, and some breast cancer screening activity" (pg. 11)
