Today our friends over at the documentary series Retro Report takes us back to 1971 when the National Cancer Act was signed by then-President Richard Nixon.

The act heralded a War on Cancer, which has since raised awareness about the disease. Eradicating cancer, however, is a goal that still eludes us.

Jill Rosenbaum is a Retro Report producer who discusses the history and future of the War on Cancer.
