I guess EVERY oncology dept didn't get the memo from the secret powers. Kirk better go set them straight.

Cancer death rates are continuing to fall, dropping by 1.8 percent per year in men and 1.6 percent per year in women between 2004 and 2008, according to the American Cancer Society's annual report on cancer statistics.
Advances in cancer screening and treatment have prevented more than a million total deaths from cancer since the early 1990s, according to the report.
But the influential cancer group said new cases of seven less-common cancers rose in the past decade, suggesting more could be done in America's 40-year war on cancer.
This year, the cancer group projects 1,638,910 people will be newly diagnosed with cancer and 577,190 people will die from it.
"The big news this year is that cancer deaths are still going down," said Dr. Raymond DuBois, provost and executive vice president at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
DuBois said while the rate of decline is small, it is significant because it has continued to fall each year for the past 10 years of available data.
Between 1999 and 2008, cancer death rates fell by more than 1 percent per year in men and women in every racial and ethnic group except for American Indians/Alaska Natives, among whom rates have held steady.
"It's not hitting the ball out of the park, but it had been going up several years prior to that. It's sign now that it is on the decline," DuBois said in a telephone interview.
The biggest declines in the latest report were among black men, where cancer deaths fell by 2.4 percent, and Hispanic men, where rates fell by 2.3 percent.
Death rates fell in all four of the most common cancers, lung, colon, breast and prostate, with lung cancer accounting for nearly 40 percent of the total drop in men and breast cancer account for 34 percent of the total decline in women.
Despite improvements in the most common cancers, a companion report found an increase in cases of several cancers over the past decade. These included cancers of the pancreas, liver, thyroid, and kidney and melanoma, as well as esophageal cancer and certain types of throat cancers associated with human papillomavirus or HPV infection
That report found cases of HPV-related throat cancer and melanoma rose only in whites, and rates of esophageal cancer rose in both whites and Hispanics.
Exactly why these cancers are increasing is not yet clear, but early detection and obesity may be playing a role, the researchers said.

Don't worry... Kirk will be here soon to post a link to a preliminary study conducted back in 1989 which seems to indicate that massive doses of GMO aspartame caused cancer in like a dozen rats. That'll dispel all of this ACS bologna about falling cancer rates.

Now that we can treat cancer with thermite, it's no worse than getting a cold.

This is clearly a case of monsanto and the illuminati altering evidence to make people think there is no danger from GMO and aspartame. Now they'll sell even more of it to the slaves.

I think I have created the ultimate conspiracy...

Cancer rates are dropping? I suppose this also means that the worlds population is dropping too right? All part of the One World Governments population reduction plan?

Yes, but I think the overall numbers of cancer patients is dropping. (Meaning if Cancer A goes down from 100 people to 50, and Cancer B goes up from 10 to 20, that's still a reduction from 110 people overall to 70 overall). That's why I don't like these generalized cancer stats. That's like saying: "8,000 people died this month from trauma, indicating a 300% increase in trauma deaths." But "trauma" can be one of a million different things, so what does that really tell you?

To be fair, there could also be a huge spike in undiagnosed cases to help drop the numbers too. Lack of health insurance and the advent of the internet/Web MD probably causes people to just drop dead instead of getting properly diagnosed and treated.

You realize they have to put a cause of death on the death certificate right? People don't just "drop dead" from cancer like a heart attack.

Just popping in here to remind everyone that "cancer" is an umbrella term for like 200 different diseases. Have a nice day.
Cancer is a category of different diseases that all have something in common (malignant abnormal cell growth). Enjoy your afternoon.

But if its complications that kill you like AIDS patients getting pneumonia its only listed as a secondary or tertiary COD. Im not saying the logic is airtight but it could help skew reported numbers.

But overall they're dropping, and the survivability continues to increase.

And if you look at the numbers, it's a drop in the bucket... 1.6 million cases per year and less than 1/3rd of those cases will be fatal. There are 300 million people in the US. Even if every single case of cancer was a direct result of the globalist GMOthermiteaspartametrails population reduction program, we're talking about less than 1/600th of the population "kill rate". If you look at it realistically, and you eliminate the cancers that are obviously other-than-globalist(hereditary, obesity-related, smoking-related, etc...) now we're looking at "kill rate" of like 1/1000... and the majority of those kills will have managed to breed before the globalists got them, so their deaths will have had little or no impact on curbing the population... basically they were just killed for fun.

The cancer death rates don't even come close to offsetting the replacement rates, let alone leading to an overall decrease in the US population.

In summation... the globalist GMOthermiteaspartametrails population reduction program... Worst. Population. Reduction. Program. Ever.

Except that the uninsured rate in the US has been holding steady at around 15%, for the past 20 years. Did someone give you the impression that it hasn't, that there's a sudden uninsured problem in the US? Is his middle name Hussein?

Yep. You wanna be killing children. Maybe teens, if you get them early enough. And heaps of them. Not a few old people here and there.

The first line of your post was also pointed out it in the news report that I was watching last night.

Proof? I just find that hard to believe that it has been steady while the unemployment rate has risen. I would assume that they were somewhat correlated.

Public (welfare) coverage is rising, as employer coverage is dropping. They even themselves out. Not sure who's gonna pay for it though. Probably no one.

This is from before that though:
