CANCER: BLACKS MAY BE THE HIGHEST, BUT ASIANS, NATIVE AMERICANS AND HISPANICS HAVE THE LOWEST RATES

Everybody knows that Blacks have the highest rates of cancer, usually blamed on racism, poverty, or both, but who dares point out that Asians and Hispanics have the LOWEST rates of most cancers, except stomach cancer (from Kim-Chee) and lung cancer among women (from stir frying). Hispanics and Native Americans also have very low rates of cancer. They are definitely poor, with per capita incomes even lower than blacks. So does it really make sense to blame everything on poverty?

Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States. It is a disease in which normal human cells become abnormal and proliferate uncontrollably.

       LOS ANGELES, Dec. 14 (AScribe Newswire) -- Among Californians,
black men face the highest risk of being diagnosed with cancer, and
their rates are almost three times as high as those among South Asian
groups, according to statistics from the California Cancer Registry
and researchers at the Los Angeles Cancer Surveillance Program at
USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center....ates of certain cancers
(such as liver and stomach cancer) are much higher among Koreans and
Chinese than among blacks and other groups.

Ethnicity 1988-2001,"


"Cancer Rates: Bad News for Asian Americans" Asian Week July 2, 1998
p. 13 Raises the alarm about "increasing" cancer rates, and better
statistics by comparing Asian groups against each other. But it does
not note that some groups such as the Chinese and Japanese have much
lower rates of cancer death than whites, a similar tactic used in the
AIDS campaign to walk around very low overall rates for all Asians.
Another example of sweeping the good under the rug to paint a picture
of gloom no matter how much better than whites statistics are.

(AP) U Minnesota report said Hmong have higher rates of cancer of jnose,

Summary - Asians have a very low rate of breast cancer, but don't get many mammograms when they do catch it. Some studies say Asian women catch up when they are born here, or are larger. Blacks aren't so high, but they have a high death rate. A popular theory points out that Japanese and Mexicans have lower rates of breast cancer, at least until they start living here, but a new study shows no link between high and low fat diets and breast cancer rates

"Although those American Indians who live in the southwest region of
the United States and Alaska Natives continue to experience low cancer
incidence rates in comparison with whites, African Americans, Asians,
and other races, within the last few generations cancer has become the
leading cause of death for Alaska Native women and is the second
leading cause of death among American Indian women"

Protein Linked to Prostate Cancer Risk in Black Men By Keith
Mulvihill SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters Health) - The prostate tumors found
in black men have more than 20 times the level of a certain
cancer-promoting substance as the tumors found in white men,
researchers reported at The American Society for Cell Biology
"African-American men are at three times greater risk of developing
prostate cancer, are more likely to have an aggressive form of the
disease, and are more likely to die of the cancer compared with other
ethnic groups... even higher if you compare it to Asian populations
who have a very low rate of prostate cancer," she added.
[this fits the black-white-asian health pattern]
