asian men and prostate cancer

A recent study focusing on Asian American men and prostate cancer seems to indicate that most Asian groups have higher survival rates than other groups: Asians May Have an Edge in Battling Prostate Cancer. South Asians, however, seem to be the exception, having worse survival rates than whites by some 40 percent—definitely a major limitation of clumping multiple Asian ethnicities into one group. So why are we so badass when it comes to prostate cancer survival? Don't know. But researchers hypothesize that Asian American dietary patterns—which tend to include less fat, more soy, and more vegetables than a typical American diet—may play a role.
