"Cancer is, in truth, a variety of diseases. viewing it as a single disease that will yield to a single approach is no more logical than viewing neu-ropsychiatric disease as a single entity that will respond to one strategy. it is unlikely that we will soon see a 'magic bullet' for the treatment of cancer. but it is just as unlikely that there will be a magic bullet of prevention or early detection that will knock out the full spectrum of cancers.... we are making progress. although we also have a long way to go, it is facile to claim that the pace of favourable trends in mortality reflects poor policies and mistaken priorities."
