A meta-analytic approach was used to summarize studies of cancer incidence among Native populations in the United States and Canada.
Native males and females were found to have a significantly lower incidence of cancer for all sites combined.
Among Native males, kidney cancer was found to exhibit significantly elevated incidence, while significantly lower incidence was found for cancers of the colon, lung, and, prostate, and for lymphomas and leukaemias.
Native females were found to have significantly elevated incidence for cancers of the gallbladder, cervix, and kidney, while significantly decreased incidence was found for cancers of the colon, breast and uterus, and for lymphomas.
