Tang et al. Fig. 1 The graph shows the comparative disparity rate ratio between NHB and NHW women for 24 of the largest cities in the United States, from 2005 to 2007, in accordance to the index of disparity, which is arranged in increasing disparity, from least to greatest as documented in a recent publication [9] and comparing the non-Hispanic Black (NHB) women and non-Hispanic White (NHW) women for breast cancer mortality rates, several very interesting patterns were found. The study examined the breast cancer mortality rate by comparing the NHB:NHW ratio in order to closely analyze the relationship in each city.

3 Tobacco Control Cancer control is associated with two main components—reducing tobacco use and systematic screening coupled with timely treatment [35]. Tobacco smoking is known to contribute to at least 15 types of cancer [36]. Eliminating tobacco smoking would help decrease the development of breast cancer. Studies show that between the early 1990s to 2003, the overall cancer death rates between the AA and the EA was reduced, which was attributed to decreased tobacco use [35]. However, EA women were also shown to more likely receive appropriate treatment for breast cancer due to socioeconomic status [35].

3 Breast Feeding Breast feeding reduces a woman’s risk of breast cancer and is an important modifiable preventive behavior. Longer duration of breast feeding has been associated with a greater reduction in breast cancer risk. The higher incidence of estrogen receptor negative/progesterone receptor negative breast cancer among black women in the United States may be partly explained by their lower prevalence of breastfeeding relative to white women [17]. 4 Menopausal Status and Age at Menopause Older age at menopause is also a well-recognized risk factor for breast cancer.
