ST. LOUIS, (KMOX) – A massive national study on cancer prevention has reached its goal for participants.

It’s called the American Cancer Society’s – Cancer Prevention Study 3.

More than 300,000 people from across the country have now joined the effort by agreeing to take part in the research.

That includes more than 6,800 Missourians and nearly 4,200 St. Louis area residents.

Over the next few years, these volunteers will answer all sorts of questions about their lifestyle and daily routines.

That information in past studies has led to finding the link between smoking and cancer, obesity and cancer occurrence and death, and the impact of medications like aspirin on cancer risk.
