Greater cancer risk for Latinos 

Well this is not good news:

"The American Cancer Society report released in the Bronx yesterday says Latinos are hit harder by stomach, liver and cervical cancers and are less likely to take preventive measures, such as screenings."

My first thought was that this was probably due to fears and lathargicy. And not a genetic inclination. Confirmation:

"Fear keeps a lot of people away," said Dr.... "There needs to be education that early detection is critical for a cure."
