Fox News anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle has a new target for the public: the breast cancer population.
Guilfoy, who has been the anchor of Fox News Channel’s The Five since August, announced Monday that she will launch a new campaign on her channel called “Breast Cancer Statistics,” in which she will attempt to provide a new, objective perspective on breast cancer in America.
She will highlight breast cancer’s health disparities among different racial and ethnic groups, and she will use that data to discuss the health impacts of various policies on the health of American women.
In her first video to go live on the new campaign, Guilfroy takes a look at the prevalence of breast cancer among different groups, highlighting the fact that, while there are nearly three times more black women in the United States than white women, there are far more black and Latino women in a similar group of breast cancers.
She notes that while the prevalence among black women is nearly three to four times that of white women in America, the prevalence for Hispanic women is four times the white rate.
Guillfoyle points out that this discrepancy in breast cancer rates is partly because women who have breast cancer tend to have higher rates of other health problems, such as depression and anxiety, as well as higher rates than their peers.
She also notes that, according to a recent report, more than half of the breast cancers in the U.S. are among black and Hispanic women.
Guilfeoy also notes, however, that the majority of breast health issues are preventable.
She notes that in the last three decades, breast cancer prevention and early detection programs have been greatly expanded in America through a variety of programs such as mammography, mammography awareness, and testing.
She also notes the increased number of women in her audience who are able to use breast cancer screenings and early diagnosis as a tool in their daily lives.
She argues that in addition to these efforts, there has been a decrease in the number of breast examinations and referrals, and a decrease of the number and type of tests that can be performed.
According to the American Cancer Society, there were nearly 6,700,000 breast cancers diagnosed in the first three months of 2018, an increase of 9.6 percent from the same time period last year.
