Deadliest cancers strike the poorest people

The impoverished run a greater risk of dying from a diagnosed cancer than the more affluent, who after diagnosis are more likely to die of other causes, a new study confirms.

The research shows that areas with higher poverty actually have lower cancer incidence and higher mortality than wealthier areas. In other words, poor people are getting cancer less but dying more while rich people are getting more cancer more but dying less.

That’s because certain cancers are more concentrated in lower socioeconomic areas
