Hope this link works. Sorry guru guys still can't figure out the links. They mentioned colorectal cancer in this article so that is hopeful.

I heard that on the news last night. Words like that are always promising. On the local news I heard 25% decline on men since the 80's. A lot having a lot to do with the decline in lung cancer. 15% in women, breast and colon. 1,000, 000 more lives a year, saved since the 80's.

however, their physician commentator attributed the decline mostly to preventive and/or early diagnostic measures ... not a whole lot of relation to better, more effective treatments. Although, we all know that chemotherapy has come a long way since the day of 5FU alone for CRC.
