Yeah, me too (namely, industry). I couldn't help notice the dates. I wonder if current data look similar.(I mean, everyone was still smoking back then for one thing.)
I know there are many places people call "Cancer Alley," but the one in Pasadena/Deer Park, Texas, where all the chemical plants and refineries are, is called Cancer Alley by public health professionals. The records bear it out. I'm talking about mid-1980's.[ynfuz - yes-no-fuzzy]
certainly industry has an effect, and i've alwys heard new orleans and parts south referred to as cancer alley too. one of the interesting things: in the northeast, both men and women [white] have higher cancer mortality rates, but in the south, among whites, the men have noticeably higher rates in some areas.i also wondered if the lack of early data about cancer among blacks was because nobody cared enough about them back then to record what they died of.
