Original content from United Benefit Advisors

Cancer is the top health concern among middle-age Americans, a study by Washington National Institute for Wellness Solutions found this summer. The study, reported by InsuranceNewsNet, discovered that 79 percent are somewhat or very concerned about a cancer diagnosis, followed by heart disease (74 percent), stroke (70 percent) and Alzheimer’s disease (60 percent). Men’s largest cancer concerns were prostate, colon and lung cancer, while women were most concerned with breast cancer.
