What Kind of Cancer You Have May Depend on Your Income

Some cancers are tied to our income, says researchers from Rutgers. Their new study found that poorer areas had higher rates of cancers linked to drinking, smoking, using drugs and STDs. Wealthier Americans were more likely to have skin, thyroid and testicular cancer. Although lower-income areas had lower cancer rates than wealthier areas, the death rates there were still higher.
