Eliminate Health Disparities, to Resolve Economic Disparities

Each person generally must be able to manage their own health and wealth. Can outsource anything, but Americans generally need to have these independent abilities.

Have extensively reviewed best practices of managing wealth, to close wealth disparities, such as finding above average companies.

Don’t Be Average

Best practices of managing wealth also include an awareness of how to use leverage over a long term basis.

Using Leverage, over the Long Term

In addition to managing wealth, managing health and understanding the basics of identifying health disparities are also essential skills each person must have, especially people from historically economically disadvantaged families.

People who live longer, can invest longer, they can support other family members financially, and pass on their wisdom and experience to future generations.

Studying Economic History, from Family

Family planning and financial planning as a family, have a powerful potential to close the most sociologically relevant economic disparities.

It’s not a coincidence that health and wealth disparities are commonly correlated particularly at the economic extremes, of poverty and wealth.

Where Health and Wealth Gaps Are Widest

While pH14 plan aims to review best practices to close wealth disparities, that goal can’t be accomplished in a vacuum, and without taking into consideration the effect of health and health disparities.

Health Disparities Research on Uterine Cancer

Review a recent discovery among health disparities researchers.

https://www.cancer.gov/news-events/press-releases/2019/rate-aggressive-uterine-cancers-rising

Rates of aggressive uterine cancers are rising.

Numerous epidemiologists affirm that black American women are about 3x more likely to have uterine cancer, and the rise of aggressive uterine cancer is steeper in black American women. 

Viewing the rates by race over time, all other major ethnic groups generally have lower rates of uterine cancer.

Why are black American women more likely to have uterine cancer, and more likely to have the aggressive subtype which has been rising in recent years???

What are black American women doing differently — 2x or 3x more — that other women aren’t doing???

Research on uterine cancer has typically pointed to obesity. Indeed, black American women are about 2x more likely to experience extreme obesity than other racial groups.

https://media.stateofobesity.org/uploads/2018/08/inequity2.png

But the racial gaps among women decrease significantly when observing ‘normal’ obesity.

The research staff at HHS NIH NCI also affirm this with their own observations.

They describe how obesity is typically associated with endometrioid subtypes of uterine cancer, but rates of this non-aggressive subtype has been more stable and not increasing.

Instead, the incidence of more aggressive nonendometrioid subtypes of uterine cancer is increasing, but is not likely explained by the rising prevalence of obesity.

The bottom line of Dr. Clark’s press release on uterine cancer statistics ends concluding, “our study suggests that there are other factors leading to the increases in incidence of uterine cancer, and this warrants further research.”

Again, what are black American women doing 2x or 3x more in recent years that other women aren’t doing???

LOOK for activities, behavior, or environmental toxins that likely have very little to do with nutritional metabolism.

Trends in rates of uterine cancer have been rising in recent years.

https://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html/corp.html

The observed rates of uterine cancer hovered between ’24 and 25′ from 1984 through 2007.

Then something happened nationally, where for the first time in 23 years, uterine cancer rates ‘broke out’ above its observed range.

Again, what non-nutritional environmental toxicity exposure impacted black American women more, since 2007?

Cell Phone Data Plans, Environmental Toxicity

One non-nutrition source of cancer related toxicity that researchers globally have examined could be cellular telephone services.

Cell phone utilization and human exposure to electromagnetic radiation from telephone devices has been rising since the 1990s, well before the 2007 ‘breakout’ in uterine cancers.

But around 2007, something different happened in the national marketplace and social behaviors of cellular telephones and their electromagnetic radiation: people began “texting“.

https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=Texting

Americans began to keep their cell phones on their bodies as a means for quickly communicating with family and friends.

Data plans on the cellular networks became increasingly popular just after 2007.

https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=Data%20plan

Neither texting nor data plans were pervasively accessible and utilized prior to 2007. 

Whereas previously cellphone companies advertised the devices were for driver safety, the advertising and marketing shifted from a device for emergency purposes only, to using the devices constantly – ie, ‘unlimited plans’ – as a better way to access friends and family.

Over the last 20 years, these ‘unlimited plans’ have been marketed without any risk disclosures. 

When Do Loan Offers Become Unscrupulous?

The CEO of Telecom for Nielsen, was quoted in 2010 by ABC news saying “African Americans actually talk more than twice as much as whites do“.

https://abcnews.go.com/WN/cell-phones-demography-nielsen-data-breaks-mobile-phone/story?id=11468925

Other non-nutritional environmental sources of toxicity disproportionately impacting black American women could be talcum powder.

https://www.baumhedlundlaw.com/ovarian-cancer-talcum-powder-lawsuit/black-women-affected-talcum-powder-cancer/?amp
Black Women More Affected by Talcum Powder and Ovarian …

But the 2007 breakout in uterine cancer doesn’t correlate as well for talcum powder as does the ubiquitous accessibility of data plans and their widespread utilization by black American women. 

https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=talcum+powder&year_start=1800&year_end=2000&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2Ctalcum%20powder%3B%2Cc0#t1%3B%2Ctalcum%20powder%3B%2Cc0

Scientific articles confirm these suspicions.

A 2016 study published by a European research group connects electromagnetic radiation to uterine oxidative stress in animal models.

https://scholar.google.com/scholar?cluster=15192320734200226962&hl=en&as_sdt=0,9&scioq=emr+uterine+cancer+phones

“Mobile phone- and Wi-Fi-induced EMR may be one cause of increased oxidative uterine injury in growing rats and decreased hormone levels in maternal rats.”

Another 2019 study concludes that the woman’s body is measurably sensitive to cellular network activities, in animal models.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0188440919300748

“Non-ionizing radiation progressed endometrial hyperplasia in an experimental rat model with/without estrogen exposure.”

Don’t wait for the risk disclosures to be issued before taking measures to protect your family. Bad people tend to work and operate in communities, and they can be terribly delayed in choosing to do what might be morally right.

Communities of Crime

Perhaps, encourage any loved ones to keep the cell phone away from their body, allow the phone to automatically turn off at nights, use the ph more often on airplane mode especially in moving vehicles, and avoid sleeping near the phone or WiFi router.

Rest easy and be at peace. But remain vigilant.

First, Preserve and Protect People

Economics generally measures what we do with our people, land, and technology.

Certainly, we extensively review the utility of gaining top skills using technology…

Where Trends Are Rising, Might Be Surprising

…and we discuss the utility of using wages to acquire cash paying assets, such as real estate.

Real Estate Acquisition through Syndication

But more important than land and technology, the #1 asset economically disadvantaged families can’t afford to lose, are the people within our families. Simply cannot afford to lose our family members early or prematurely… certainly can’t afford to lose our mothers, sisters, and wives.

Carefully integrate health disparities research and its findings within the broader context of economic development planning.
