Cancer Rates In Kids Lowest In The South

New research regarding childhood cancer has caught some experts off-guard. It suggests that the highest rate of pediatric cancer is in the Northeast with 179 cases per million children. The lowest rate was found among children in the South. Some experts say it could mean that cases are under-reported in that part of the country.

    The results aren't really surprising. Perhaps some cancer cases go unreported, but it would make sense for more children to have cancer in the highly-developed Northeast. Most kids in the South probably live in rural, underdeveloped areas and are less exposed to harmful fumes and toxins. There are benefits in living a simple life. Industrialization is good too, of course.

    Why do experts always think the South should rank last in everything. You know what an expert is? Someone from out of town.
