CANCER CURE RATES IMPROVED - AMAZING CERVICAL CANCER PROGRESS

Cervical Cancer Will Be Eliminated Worldwide Like Polio and Smallpox. Amazing Results with New Vaccines.”

Cancer cure rates have improved significantly over the past several decades in America. Cervical cancer represents the most dramatic and amazing improvement in cancer death reduction.  HPV causes 90%+ of cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers.  It is also a cause of oral and throat cancers.  The HPV vaccines have been shown to prevent cervix cancer in adolescents who have been vaccinated.  Only about 50% of girls and young women in America receive HPV vaccines.  Improving that number will decrease the incidence of cervix cancer even further.  The vaccine is used in a much lower percentage of young women. Improving those vaccination rates could decrease the incidence of cervix cancer throughout the world. Cervical cancer literally could be eliminated worldwide, like polio and smallpox, due to those vaccines.

Lung cancer cure rates have declined due to decreased tobacco intake and improved treatments.  Breast cancer cure rates improved due to earlier diagnosis. 

The massive investment in cancer research in the United States is clearly paying off. WCRF has been a major contributor to this life saving research.  WCRF’s publication of 165 peer review papers over the past 15 years makes it one of the most productive clinical gynecologic oncology research groups in America.
