Breast Cancer Rates Skyrocket in China as Locals Embrace American Diet of Processed Foods

E-mail Print PDF

Rates of breast cancer and birth defects are on the rise in China, largely due to the increasing adoption of a Western diet and a boom in coal mining, respectively, according to state-run media reports.

At the same time, the number of obese Chinese has reached 60 million. While this is less than five percent of the population (compared with 30 percent in the United States), it is equivalent to the entire population of France.
