A disproportionate number of Hispanics are developing cancers that are linked to unhealthy lifestyles, many of which they developed living in the United States. The four most common cancers among Latinos are: breast, prostate, colorectal and lung cancer and they account for almost half the cases: 3,300 a year in New Jersey. Overall, there are nearly 800 cancer deaths.
