Study Says, Hispanics Live Longer than Caucasians and African Americans in the US

Study Says, Hispanics Live Longer than Caucasians and African Americans in the U

According to a new Government report, Hispanic people outlive Caucasians and African Americans living in the United States.

As per the data from the Centers for Disease Control, the life expectancy of Hispanics who were born in the year 2006 is 80 years and seven months, whereas for whites it is around 78 years and only 73 for Blacks.

The irony is that privileged circumstances and education plays no role in longevity. In the US, Hispanic population either live longer or die early, both trends are prevalent.

Dr. Jane Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health said that the reason behind Hispanic population’s longevity is that they indulge in less smoking, they lead a healthy lifestyle, and go for a regular walk.

Hispanic immigrants follow a healthy diet and eat frits, vegetable, rice, and beans instead of junk food and processed products.

Apart from a healthy diet, it was found that Hispanic immigrants also have strong family ties and love to be in the company of friends, which it turn lead to longer and happy life.

The researchers are also planning to do another study, in which they intend to classify Hispanics on the basis of country of origin and note the longevity trend.
