Michigan state lawmakers need to do more to help protect people from cancer. That’s the finding of a new study by the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society says 58,610 people in Michigan will be diagnosed with cancer this year; 20,800 will die.
Nationwide, the society estimates 1.6 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2014, and 580,000 will die from the disease.
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network’s annual “How Do You Measure Up” report says Michigan state lawmakers should be doing more to reduce cancer risks.
