(FEB. 16 2008/ 10 ADAR ALEF 5768 UPDATE: PLEASE SEE BREAKING NEWS BULLETIN BELOW REGULAR POST)
The Young White Male Model is out.
So is the Middle-Aged White Female Model.
Whew! Doctors finally understand that different kinds of swimmers abound in the gene pool. Our races and ethnic realities matter to our longevity. Here's the scoop:
The National Institutes of Health recently announced that the CARE model (the Women's Contraceptive and Reproductive Experiences study) gives better estimates of the number of breast cancers that would develop in African American women 50 to 79 years of age than an earlier model which was based primarily on data from white women.
The medical world is maturing as it gathers data about health risks in people of various races and cultural groups. Here's a link about how doctors within the National Cancer Institute assess the levels of risk for breast cancer among women from different ethnic groups. Pay attention ladies, and be sure to get some sort of exercise as you follow the rest of the health-promoting advice at http://www.cancer.gov/bcrisktool
Some of the data in the NCI study was culled from the STAR Clinical Trials (I wrote about them as a jounalist quite some time ago. See my "Clips" at http://www.ygolani.com/).
