Reasons for this could be demographics, law enforcement, communication, and political activism. Omid Safi, a religious studies professor, says that Muslim Americans should become more involved in public discourse to help curtail radicalization and terrorism.

For liver-cancer patient Don Yarborough, participating in a trial was crucial. If the treatment does not help him, he said, maybe the research would help someone else.
