Professor Peter Sasieni, Cancer Research UK epidemiologist at Queen Mary, University of London, said: "Our latest estimations show that for many cancers, adjusting for age, death rates are set to fall dramatically in the coming decades. And what's really encouraging is that the biggest cancer killers, lung, breast, bowel, and prostate, are part of this falling trend."
