The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States agency responsible for monitoring the nation’s health, along with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the United States lead cancer research agency, have recently updated the federal statistics on cancer incidence and deaths in the US.

Mortality Rates of Malignant Neoplasm of Bronchus and Lung per 100,000 1979 - 2011

Mortality Rates of Malignant Neoplasm of Bronchus and Lung per 100,000 1979 - 2011[/caption] According to that data, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US and accounts for one in four deaths in Americans. The data also revealed that overall cancer death rates have been steadily falling in the last 10 years, but deaths related to liver, pancreatic, and endometrial cancer have not followed the same trend, instead of showing a slight increase in deaths related of these types of cancers.
