***News Stories Thread*** ONGOING 2019

Postby CRguy » Fri Jan 04, 2019 7:49 pm

To continue a great ColonTalk tradition ....... the 2019 NEWS topic !!!!!
AND in the words of its founder garbovatwin I will start things with the original intro from each year !!!!
Countdown to the Ongoing News Thread has begun.
May all YOUR news be GOOD.

For many of us, be it due to our busy schedules or our demanding treatment and surgeries, we can so easily miss out on a story that we could have/should have seen.

So, here you have it, an ONGOING News Thread where everyone can and probably should consider posting any news stories they deem important, RATHER than adding them to the general support topic thread, where they will clutter up and at times bury important posts for advice and support from fellow CRC members and family.

Please try to post THE LINK TO THE NEWS STORY ONLY to avoid any issues with re-posting copyrighted material.

Just click on the POST REPLY BUTTON
COPY FROM THE NEWS STORY THE LINK TO THE STORY
PASTE the link in the body of the post
COPY FROM THE NEWS STORY THE TITLE UNDER THE LINK
PASTE the title in SUBJECT box

Good health and happiness to all.

AND
Yet again, we thank you for all your work in keeping us up to date with recent events !
We have made this topic a "sticky" to keep it where everyone will know where to find it.

Once the year ends, we let the old News Topic float back down the page.
Previous ONGOING News Topics can be found here 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010

ALL Members please note that although garbovatwin has authored much of this topic... it is definitely for all members to use, so please keep it active, as instructed in the previous posting.

Best wishes to everyone for 2019

WSJ: Cancer Deaths Decline 27% Over 25 Years

Postby NHMike » Tue Jan 08, 2019 11:09 am

For most of the 20th century, overall cancer deaths rose, driven mainly by men dying from lung cancer, researchers noted. But since the peak in 1991, the death rate has steadily dropped 1.5% a year through 2016, primarily because of long-running efforts to reduce smoking as well as advances in detection and treatment of cancer at earlier stages, when prognosis for recovery is generally better.
