Current Cancer News
American Cancer Society Newsstand. Recent cancer-related news items. Each report is a paraphrasing of a selected, hot cancer news article from the scientific literature and so can be very useful for people with minimal scientific background. The ACS newsstand goes a long way toward making cancer news accessible to the general public. Research papers are "translated" into everyday language. The newsstand also includes ACS press releases and official responses to cancer research news. Some examples of recent reports include:
