Racial discrepancy with diet and breast cancer

Black women in America have a poorer prognosis with breast cancer than American white women due to diet induced co-morbidities. Studies have shown that more black women who are diagnosed with breast cancer also suffer from diet and lifestyle diseases as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic lung disease and autoimmune diseases, e.g lupus, rheumatoid arthritis. The scientists recommend that physicians incorporate promotion of a healthy diet and exercise program to cancer sufferers, to improve their life expectancy after breast cancer treatment.
