The NCI Cancer Centers Program is one of the anchors of the nation’s cancer research effort. There are currently 70 NCI-Designated Cancer Centers, located in 36 states and the District of Columbia, that form the backbone of NCI’s programs for studying and controlling cancer. At any given time, hundreds of research studies are under way at the cancer centers, ranging from basic laboratory research to clinical assessments of new treatments. [Read More...]
Obesity-related cancers rising in young adults in the US

Obesity-related cancers rising in young adults in the US

A new study finds rates are increasing for six of 12 cancers related to obesity in younger adults in the United States, with steeper increases in progressively younger ages and successively younger generations. The study, appearing in The Lancet Public Health, also looked at rates for 18 cancers unrelated to obesity, and found rates increasing for only two. The obesity epidemic over the past 40 years has led to younger generations experiencing [Read More...]
