Cancer Differences in the Black and Caucasian Population
White, Jack E.
Phylon, 38, 3, 297-314, Sep 77
Cancer mortality in U.S. blacks has greatly increased since 1950. This greater increase for blacks was found in 28 of the 56 most frequent cancers. Greater exposure to environmental carcinogens appears to be the main cause. This author recommends a thorough epidemiologic study of the rise in black cancer deaths. (Author/GC)
