Re: prostate ca and black males [HAPP-L]



Two possible scenarios:  1:  A diet high in fats makes prostate cancer
more likely.  So if there is any average difference in diet, this would
be a factor.  However, given the variety of life styles Americans
exhibit, I think the next suggestion is much more likely.

2:  Prostate cancer is one of the more heritable of cancers so it seems
more likely that it would be more concentrated in one ethnic group than
another.

To Members of HAPS,

Does any HAPS member out there in cyberspace
know why blacks are at higher risk for prostate
cancer?

Thanks, Marilyn L. Shaver
