In Montana and around the world, 25 percent of all cases of cancer are attributed to breast cancer, which is the most common type of the disease among women. Due to the prevalence of breast cancer, significant scientific research has been dedicated to improving early detection of the disease. By discovering and treating breast cancer early on, survival rates can be substantially improved. The ongoing research has shown results as current survival rates have improved and are now high in comparison to other types of cancer.
Public safety officials have not definitively linked an increase in distracted driving to the increase in fatal car accidents, but most drivers in Montana probably think that it would make sense to. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that 37,150 people died on America's roads in 2017, which is more than a 10 percent jump from only three years prior. In the meantime, more new technology, especially automated technology, is being introduced.
