Why do we get cancer and how? 12/20 by CHASTITYS CHYLD | Education Podcasts

HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get the virus at some point in their lives. Although the overall racial disparity in cancer death rates is decreasing, in 2012, the death rate for all cancers combined was 24% higher in black men and 14% higher in black women than in white men and women, respectively.

Southern states bear the greatest burden of HIV, accounting for 50% of new infections in 2014.
