The reports shows that on an average 181 out of 100000 people die now in cancer compared to 185 in 2005. Experts back up the people for their efforts to quit smoking as the key reason for this decline. Earlier detection and improved treatment are also considered as key to this down trend. But cancer institute officials think nothing could suddenly change in a year and added that this success had its roots few years back. The deaths due to specific cancer types like colon cancer have come down due to early detection and that of leukemia due to effective treatments.
