Very interesting graphs. If you look at each type of cancer separately, the curves are different, although most are similarly "mountain-shaped". Some exceptions being pancreas and liver cancer, which are actually increasing, or thyroid, which is quite stable. Maybe the downward tendency shows the result of decades of research and education, i. e. earlier detection, better treatments, etc.?
