This study is important because the government needs this information to help fund different diseases that are gender-specific like: birth control, condoms, pregnancy, prostate cancer, and breast cancer.
What would happen if we didn’t know the male and female birth rates?
What would happen if we didn’t fund gender-specific healthcare?
Analysis and Discussion
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimate that they will spend $4,446,000,000 in 2009 for female-specific cancers (breast cancer, cervical cancer, and ovarian cancer) and $299,000,000 for men’s cancer (prostate cancer), which is a ratio of almost 15:1 in favor of women.
I have found that government funding for cancer has been mostly for women; there are 1.34 women to every man with cancer, although women receive 16.5 times as much funding versus men.
Men and Women die per minute due to cancer, it’s the highest death rate other than Cardiovascular diseases (http://www.poodwaddle.com/clocks/worldclock/, 2011)
