PLEASE NOTE: the survey allows for only 7 places - so cannot break down ethnicity into percentages - this is a survey of interest spurred on by recent articles on who is most at risk for PCa.

Indians aren't screening like we do. The poverty, illiteracy and different reality there would make advocating for screening impossible. Same in China probably. I think that even in Southern and Eastern Europe there is a pretty "ignorant" attitude towards cancer in general. They're all still smokers and will fry under the sun all day long if given the chance.

davidg - you just stereotyped most of the population of the entire world in your post, you might want to re-think all those generalizations.

bronson, good piece, thanks for posting it.

I admit, I am white, and have the same consistency as a loaf of fresh white bread.

lived in Southern Europe for 17 years and travel to India all the time on work. Both statements were accurate.

Also have a post graduate degree in cultural anthropology from an ivy league school. I could sit here and discuss stereotypes with you all night long if it would be of interest to either of us.

North America is far ahead of the curve when it comes to cancer screening/testing. That's not a secret or a stereotype.
