On 4 January 2018 The Washington Post reported:
The nation's overall cancer death rate declined 1.7 per cent in 2015, the latest indication of steady, long-term progress against the disease, according to a new report by the American Cancer Society. Over nearly a quarter-century, the mortality rate has fallen 26 per cent, resulting in almost 2.4 million fewer deaths than if peak rates had continued. Cancer Statistics 2018, the organization's annual look at incidence, mortality, and survival, tracks the decades-long decline in mortality as driven largely by falling death rates among four malignancies -- lung, breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer. Ahmedin Jemal, the group's vice president for surveillance and health services research, said the decreases largely reflect reduced smoking and advances in prevention, early detection, and treatment.
