This seems hard to believe, but the rate of people dying from cancer in the United States has apparently been dropping…steadily…for 25 years. This is according to a new report that came out this past week, attributing the decline to lower smoking rates and advances in early detection and treatment. That all sounds fine and good, but what’s concerning about this report is what’s buried in the fine print: obesity-related cancer deaths have been steadily rising, accounting for a growing share of total cases, much the way tobacco use drove cancer death rates to its peak in 1991.
