oh here they go again another study to make blacks look bad white looks good. i've never heard of blacks having head and neck cancer. i'm sure there are some cases. in this study, blacks without hpv and with head/neck cancer have worse survival rates than whites with the hpv and head/neck cancer. wth!...so i guess the blacks just drop dead in the study. another BS study to make whites look good.
