Asian American Boobies

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Asian American women.

It is the leading cause of death for Filipino-American women while Japanese-American women have the highest rate of breast cancer among Asian American women overall. Many health experts attribute this to the Western lifestyle of fattier foods and less exercise. The risk of breast cancer increases six-fold once Asian women immigrate to the United States.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the global leader in the breast cancer movement having invested $1.9 billion thanks to events such as 3-Day for the Cure.
