Cancer more prevalent among homosexual men, study shows

Catholic World News - May 10, 2011

A medical survey in California has found that homosexual men are much more likely to contract cancer as their heterosexual counterparts. The study, published in the journal Cancer, also showed that among male cancer victims, homosexual men were diagnosed 10 years earlier, on average, than heterosexuals.

"Researchers speculate the increased cancer prevalence among gay men is associated with HIV status," a CNN report noted. While that hypothesis is certainly tenable, it would be more logical to suggest generally that there is something unhealthy about the homosexual lifestyle. However, any such suggestion would meet with angry disapproval in the current political climate.
