Why does America spend so much more on breast cancer research than prostate cancer research?

When prostrate cancer kills far more people.

      Well, boys get raised to suppress their girly, and feminine, sides. For instance girls can usually have long or short hair, but boys only short.

    Men also get breast cancer. Women don't get prostate cancer, but they can get cervical cancer which men never get. Are you afraid you've been left out of something?

      Cancer is freaking cancer in any form. Let's not turn even that into a war with ourselves, ok? But yeah, good point. Let us find out the truth about the real reason we haven't found the cure. $? How bout a real war on cancer not a war between cancer sufferers?

    Women are considered minorities. So any issues involving women take precedence. It's crap. But that's the state of Western nations.

      Women outnumber men all over the world. You have your own special definition of "minority".

    maybe because there are far more titties than prostates. more women than men and 2 titties vs 1 prostate.

    It all comes down to lobbyists and our corrupt elected officials. From Big Pharma's standpoint, you've got a population of millions willing to get tested and enter (expensive) treatment early vs. a population of millions that refuse to see a doctor until it's too late and no form of treatment can be effective. So this is to some degree the market picking winners and losers based on the behavior of consumers.

      Men are happy to be slaves to society, having been raised that way.
