We have no idea why a homosexual life style might lead to more cancer ... so we need to spend more government money on research and treatment.

Sounds like a need for a new warning label.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that (1) people who engage in risky behaviors are . . . more likely to engage in risky behaviors, and (2) as the National Cancer Institute points out:

"Certain cancer types . . . are more likely to occur in people who are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The most common types are Kaposi sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Other AIDS-related cancers include Hodgkin disease and cancers of the lung, mouth, cervix, and digestive system."

“Or, are they just more likely to survive if they do get cancer?”

This sounds like a very incomplete study, useless actually.

A 3% difference is not enough to raise concern

Ulrike Boehmer, the study’s lead author from the Boston University School of Public Health, said higher rates of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) may be related to the increased risk of cancer in gay men, but the study couldn’t address that question specifically.

Not controlling for HIV in such a study is so retarded, it cannot be unintentional: This is an activist study, not a scientific one.
They’re also more likely to avoid going to see their doctor for routine physicals or cancer screening, Margolies added—since healthcare providers may not all be tolerant and accepting of their identity.

“I don’t think that we’re going to get people to have early screening or see doctors except in emergencies ... until they can be guaranteed a safe and welcoming experience” at the doctor’s office, she said.

It may also be that gay men as a group are more likely to seek regular medical attention at a higher rate than men in general. More frequent check ups would lead to earlier cancer detection and a higher survival rate.

take away from the findings: gay, lesbian and bisexual people need more attention from the healthcare community, specifically when it comes to their cancer risks.

QUICK, OBAMA CARE TO THE RESCUE.

Sorry boyos, the death panels say you gotta die.

They death panels say that statistically you just cost too much to keep alive.

The NIH already knows that the rates of anal cancer among sodomite men are astronomical. No further study is needed to determine that sodomites have major health problems, including cancer, relating to their “lifestyle”.
