Despite apparent declines in incidence and overall mortality rates from cancer,1 both remain at near all time highs.[2] These trends pale in comparison with the dramatic declines for heart disease and stroke. If current trends continue, cancer is expected to be the leading cause of death in the United States (US) by 2010. A future pandemic of new cancer cases in the USA could be resulted from the aging of the population and the high proportion of new cases in older persons (> 60 years).[3-5] The World Health Organization estimates that worldwide the number of new cancer cases will be increased from 9 million new cases annually now to 20 million cancer cases annually by 2020 and cancer deaths from 5 million to more than 10 million. Cancer prevention provides excited potential to reduce incidence and cancer mortality.
