Study: Disparities in persist in cancer rates

A new study of cancer rates among African Americans has good news and bad news about the second leading cause of death for all Americans. Disparities between rates of cancer among African Americans and Whites narrowed, according to the analysis published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians. The decrease in disparities is largely attributable to lower rates of lung cancer among African-American men, driven by less smoking in this group.
