Black men below poverty line have lowest overall survival
#1
BETHESDA, Md., July 18 (UPI) -- While poverty increases the risk of death for most people, black men see the greatest increase in their risk for death, according to a long-term study of race, gender and socioeconomic condition.

Researchers at the National Institute of Aging found black men have a nearly three-fold risk of death over other people, and both black and white women also see increased risk of death if they live in poverty, according to more than a decade of statistical analysis.

Earlier today I heard Hillary say, 500% more black children have asthma, than any other races , children...BUT, when these stats come out, we need to seriously think on the reasons that these facts, ARE facts............lifestyles,.... parenting, prenatal care............I'm not saying it isnt true, but WHY is it true............

71 years

Within the United States region, Native American men have been found to be dying at the fastest rate of all people. The life expectancy of a Native American man is 71 years, six below the expectancy of a white male in the United States.

You won't see any of this on the charts because we bring the averages way down and no one wants to talk about the facts that the US gov has not adhered to a single treaty to date.

Quote:The American Indian and Alaska Native people have long experienced lower health status when compared with other Americans. Lower life expectancy and the disproportionate disease burden exist perhaps because of inadequate education, disproportionate poverty, discrimination in the delivery of health services, and cultural differences. These are broad quality of life issues rooted in economic adversity and poor social conditions.

There is no perhaps about it. Rampant poverty on the reservations leaving most with very few choices for dietary requirements, suicide rates/depression, alcoholism and drug use, homicides not investigated (shot in the back with a 10 gauge? suicide ruling) and severe shortages of medical care facilities means slow genocide for the People.
