New Jersey Statutes, Title: 26, HEALTH AND VITAL STATISTICS

    Chapter 2: Department may establish

      Section: 26:2-104: Legislative findings and declaration

           The Legislature hereby finds and declares:

a. That New Jersey is currently suffering from the highest overall mortality rates for cancer in the Nation;

b. That certain forms of cancer are now believed to be attributable to environmental factors which, if controlled, can significantly reduce cancer incidence in this State;

c. That more complete and more precise statistical data are necessary to determine the correlations between cancer incidence and possible environmental factors and to evaluate cancer treatment and prevention measures that are currently in progress; and,

d. That a cancer registry would thus provide a vital foundation for a concerted State effort to reduce the incidence of environmentally related cancer in this State.

L.1977, c. 266, s. 1.
