Ken Burns said, "We're not really honest with each other. We know about heart disease. We know about diabetes. We know about other things, but there's a kind of resistance because cancer is so scary."

Goodman said,  "The film is a good-news story. Where we end up after the three episodes and six hours is a place of a lot of hope, and hard-won hope that has come at the cost of a lot of lives."

The documentary makers hope that the advance of new research outdates the film soon.
