Poor prone to cancer

POORER people are more prone to cancer and less likely to survive it according to a study by the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys published last week.

The report suggests that one reason for the social divide is that people from lower social classes make less effective use of the health services. Paul Goggins of Church Action on Poverty commented that "middle class people handle the whole health system with more confidence." He said he was not surprised by the survey as poorer people generally suffer from poorer health. Nora McCarthy, president of the Catholic Nurses Guild, said that "this survey causes great concern among Catholic nurses."
