The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2012, about 1.6 million people will be diagnosed with cancer and more than 577,000 people will lose their lives to the disease.

To better understand ways to prevent cancer, the American Cancer Society’s Research Department is recruiting 300,000 adults across the U.S. for a new research study, the Cancer Prevention Study-3. CPS-3 will help the ACS better understand the genetic, behavioral, environmental, and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer and ultimately eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations
