Cancer ranks number one when Americans are asked what’s the worst disease they face, while nearly half believe the federal government doesn’t spend enough on medical research in general.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 40% of Adults consider cancer the worst disease facing Americans today. Heart disease is a distant second, rated worst by 22%, followed by 13% who say diabetes. Alzheimer’s disease is rated the worst by nine percent (9%), while two percent (2%) think AIDS is the worst. One percent (1%) list strokes, and four percent (4%) say it’s some other unspecified disease. (For survey question wording, click here)
