one way to think about it is that we're just getting good at detecting people that would never have succumbed
A whole lot of people don't go for annual physicals... they go when they know there's something wrong with them. Early detection is the key... but if people don't go their doctors until it's too late, that's pretty much a moot point.
Best wishes to the Griffeys... I hope all goes well.
