Cancer in Charlotte County Jessica Kight HED 2306 22 September 2018 18. What rates can you use that account for age differences between populations and how to these compare too crude rates? Incidence is backed up and true to the specific age difference when it comes year to year. A specific population persuades crude rates. 19. What are the 2010 cancer mortality rates that are adjusted for age for both Charlotte and Leon County and the entire state of Florida? What do the rates tell you? 320.3 versus 153. This tells me that these counties are higher than the entire state that year and something is going on to make the rates higher there. 20. Make a list of characteristics describing people who are more likely to die of cancer and describe the development of the disease. Ones who are heavier smokers, consistent drinkers. Development of the disease can start in forms of constant sickness that never goes away to developments on ones body that are growing. 21. Define multi-causation are it relates to disease. Give an example of how this term applies to cancer. Best way to describe is that there are multiple reasons or reactions that all work at once and produce a reaction. An example would be carrying multiple boxes in poor lighting, not being able to look where you are walking all while trying to walk across a messy walking, covered in debris. This would be relevant cancer such as different exposures that would contribute to a bigger issue down the line such as cancer. Things like using smoking for one, working in areas that have high hazard exposure like asbestos-all things that could lead to a bigger issue.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
