Cancer Rate Expected to Rise Rapidly in Latinos and Asians

Sing Tao Daily, World Journal, Posted: May 21, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO - In 20 years, the cancer rate among Asian Americans will increase by 132 percent, according to the World Journal. The Sing Tao Daily reports that a joint study by several research organizations found the number of Asian Americans with cancer will grow from 41,000 to 94,000 from 2010 to 2030. Whites are expected to see a 31 percent increase and African Americans a 64 percent increase. Latinos are the only group that is expected to have an increase in cancer rates higher than that of Asian Americans: the cancer rate among Latinos is expected to rise by 142 percent. Researchers credit the aging of the population, combined with a lack of preventative health care, as the main reasons for the increase of cancer among Asian Americans and Latinos.
