Breast Cancer Mortality Rate Shows Troubling Racial Divide

Posted By on March 14th, 2014 at 8:22 am | 13 comments.

African-American-Woman-StudyNew research shows that African-American women are, on average, 40 times more likely to lose their battle with breast cancer than white women.  The startling study examined findings compiled by experts at the Sinai Urban Health Institute in Chicago and the Avon Foundation for Women.  The reason?

Researchers analyzed data from black women in 41 cities across the country with breast cancer. Researchers say the difference can be explained by lower access to health screening, lower-quality screening, less access to treatment and low-quality treatment for African-American women in urban environments.

The study also found that death rates for both black and white women with breast cancer have declined over the past 20 years, but death rates among white women saw a much more dramatic decrease over that same time period.

  2. Hi, this weekend is fastidious designed for me, for the reason that this moment i am reading this great informative post here at my residence.

  3. Great information. Lucky me I came across your blog by accident (stumbleupon). I’ve book-marked it for later!

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  5. WOW just what I was looking for. Came here by searching for %meta_keyword%

  6. You made some decent points there. I looked on the web for additional information about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this website.

  7. I mostly use cheap wow gold during life.I such as the ease and comfort and fashionth it provides, plus they are pretty stylish/trendy.The detail that is not terrific is the high price. I however imagine they are way overpriced…lucky for me, I received mine like a present.

  10. Hello! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a large amount of work? I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  11. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.

  12. What’s up, the whole thing is going sound here and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s genuinely fine, keep up writing.

  13. Les entreprises qui disposent d’une forte marque employeur, qui sont des multinationales attractives comme Altran ne sont pas confrontées à ce problème de fuite de jeunes diplômés dans l’immédiat. Bien au contraire, nous recevons encore un grand nombre de candidatures de qualité pour des postes en France. Nous avons même des CV de candidats étrangers qui souhaitent venir travailler dans l’Hexagone. Il faudrait aussi qu’on essaie de mesurer cet attrait de la France pour les jeunes diplômés étrangers. Dans la commission nationale Talent Management de l’ANDRH, composée majoritairement de grands groupes qui disposent d’une image employeur forte, l’expatriation des jeunes est plutôt une opportunité pour recruter à terme des profils plus internationaux. Mais les PME et structures plus petites peuvent en effet, éprouver plus des difficultés pour attirer les jeunes diplômés. Le contexte général est aussi pessimiste avec des feedback négatifs sur l’emploi. Mais on commence à lire des articles sur le frémissement d’une tendance haussière de l’activité d’ici la fin de l’année. Dès que les signaux de croissance seront positifs, les opportunités de rester seront plus nombreuses. L’expatriation des jeunes a touché aussi la Grèce et l’Espagne notamment, compte tenu du contexte économique et social dans ces pays. Mais une fois de retour au pays, les entreprises leur offrent de belles opportunités et des postes à responsabilités qu’ils n’auraient pas décrochés s’ils étaient restés en France.
