Cancer Main Killer for Asians

World Journal, news, Posted: Apr 13, 2009

LOS ANGELES The State of California on Thursday released a study on health challenges faced by Asians and Pacific Islanders. It shows that cancer is the top killer disease for Asians, reports the World Journal. The study, by the University of California under the leadership of Rep. Mike Eng, found that the cancer rate among Asians is 27.7 percent, which is higher than for any other community. Liver cancer is the most common type of cancer among Asians. Eng said that unlike previous research that studied Asians and Pacific Islanders as a single group, this study broke them up into sub-groups like native Hawaiians, Cambodians and Laotians, in hopes of providing assistance to policy makers and helping Asians and Pacific Islanders access health care.
