A long-term cancer research is getting underway across the country. Beginning Tuesday, the American Cancer Society will sign up volunteers for its Cancer Prevention Study-3. It’s a longitudinal analysis of the various factors that cause or prevent cancer. Spokeswoman Stephanie Feger says participants will take a survey, have their waist measured, and give a small blood sample.
“Over the next 20-30 years, every two-three years the American Cancer Society will mail you a survey to update any of your lifestyle or behavioral or medical information.”
