Part of it could be related to obesity and vitamin deficiencies. But part could be a difference in attitudes and logic as well as communication barriers. I am not sure, but it could be that WP are more assertive with their doctors and care more to ask certain questions. Instead, minority patients might act more like, "Yea, uh huh, I know, I gotta get out of here."

For an example in communications, I will give one. When a woman gets a mammogram, they will often immediately tell her that the images are fine. That isn't to say that there is no cancer, just that they have clear images. White women don't take that as false hope, because they wait to read or hear the rest. The instant gratification logic is not there. But BW often take the comment about the clarity of the images to be indicative of not having cancer and won't comply with followup instructions. "Why do I have to go back to the doctor if the images are fine as they say?" The thing is, the lab techs don't interpret results. They only obtain them. Then they turn them over to oncology or pathology, and then to the OB/Gyn or PCP. So you have to see your doctor to get the results.

White female inbreds are more likely to die from a brain Aneurysm because you are the spawns of satan.

All black women have to do is use NATURAL deoderant to prevent breast cancer.

You DEVILS are always putting everything that in BAD in black peoples favor & everything that is good, in white inbred favor. Even though you are the most EVIL HATEFUL race on the planet, you believe you are everything that is good.

How about becoming self reliant as a race and not depend on whitey to feed and clothe you. No, you'd rather cry about how evil whitey,'don't favor you'.

What a joke you are.

Actually, all women should use organic products. Many of the items sold for women and children contain toxins that contribute to cancers and autism.

Speaking of which, some even link bra usage to cancer, saying tight bras can impede lymphatic flow from the breasts.

A collaborative study between the CDC & the Personal Hygiene Care Institute of America concluded that the sharp rise in breast cancer in black females are the result of them not bathing with soap & water on a regular basis & the application of carcinogenic skin whitening bleach on their unwashed bodies, the spokesperson who released the study to the press clearly stated that these devastating results would immediately drop if black females would just wash themselves with soap & water at least once a day instead of once every two or three weeks & discontinue using skin whitening bleach trying to look White because all that does is make the White producers of those bleach's filthy rich & makes you colored gals the laughing stock of mainstream society because it never works.

It is not so much their genes, just where they are living and their propensity to breed too much.

Wrong again, affirmative action boy. I have never used any nasty drugs in my life. I do enjoy fine vintage wine and the occasional Bittburger lager, though.

Well, maybe you've been drinking too much wine.

Anyway, drug addicts are always in denial over their habits.
You sound like someone on meth.
You posts emanate drug abuse and hallucinogenic behavior.
Do you think you sound normal?
