Cancer death rates dropping among African Americans but survival rates still lowOR MAYBE COULD THIS BE RESULT OF BUSH'S 8 YEARS? YOU THINK?!
New report details progress and challenges
ATLANTA– February 18, 2009 – While death rates from cancer continue to drop among African Americans, the group continues to be diagnosed at more advanced stages and have lower survival rates at each stage of diagnosis compared to whites for most cancer sites. The findings come from Cancer Facts & Figures for African Americans 2009-2010, the latest edition of a report produced every two years by the American Cancer Society, the nation's leading voluntary health organization.
The new report says death rates for all cancers combined have decreased faster in African American men than white men, primarily because of rapid declines in the death rates from lung and prostate cancers.
While overall cancer death rates have also decreased among African American women, they are dropping at a slower rate than among white women.
The slower decline in African American women is largely due to smaller decreases in breast and colorectal cancer death rates.
