Hispanics in U.S. Have Lower Mortality Rates


Hispanics living in the U.S. experience 24% lower mortality than non-Hispanic whites. More than 40% of Hispanics do not have healthcare versus 15% of whites. What could cause this important advantage? Authors noted less smoking and much stronger family support among Hispanics could explain this difference.

PositiveTip: Strong social support is a very important contributor to robust health and longevity.
