Cancer has struck nearly every household in Wewelsfleth, a village of 1,500 inhabitants in northwest Germany near the mouth of the Elbe River. Residents feel not only cursed, but also abandoned by authorities in their search for an elusive answer.
Among U.S. men in 2007 (the most recent year for which statistics are available), black men were diagnosed with cancer most often, at a rate of 598.5 per 100,000. White men had the second highest incidence rate at 533.1 per 100,000, followed by Hispanic* men at 400.5, Asian/Pacific Islander men at 318.7, and American Indian/Alaska Native men at 290.0.2
Among U.S. women in 2007, white women were diagnosed with cancer most often at a rate of 412.5 per 100,000, followed by black women at 387.7, Hispanic* women at 318.3, Asian/Pacific Islander women at 276.2, and American Indian/Alaska Native women at 252.6.
Oooop, had the death data for the year, corrected and reposted incidence data.

Spiegel, as a german news source, writes only an english article
