How can Smart Planet get it so mixed up?
Actually, this story is totally illogical, misleading - if not completely erroneous. While these cancer rates will decline, it will be from the reduction in the one factor that causes all of them - inflammation. Diet - especially the intake of imbalanced fats (omega 3/6 ratios ) reducing arachidonic acid cascade bi-product levels, excess sugar (processed simple carbohydrates) - the resulting obesity, and yes obviously smoking - all produce the inflammation that cause the bulk of these cancers - and diabetes. It won't be the screening programs that reduce the cancer rates - screening has no impact on cancer development - just survival rates once you have it.
