Is being American unhealthy for Mexicans?

RICE / DUKE (US) —
Mexican-Americans
who have assimilated into the U.S. culture are less healthy than those
who have recently migrated from Mexico, a new study suggests.
While men tend to start out healthier than women, their health declines at a faster pace as they adapt to the U.S. culture.

Seriously, is there ANYTHING that the world can't blame America for?  You have MEXICANS blaming THE US SYSTEM for their supposed ill health.  The writing is on the wall, gentlemen.  You've let things go too far.  When you have MEXICANS blaming US culture for making them sick, it's game over.  You had better apologize and write a couple of checks to make up for this.

For their health of course.





ETA-I'm just referring to the illegals.   The rest of them have to stay and die of heart disease like the rest of us Americans.

Interesting. Probably bullshit. The medical/ nutritional science arena is full of crap studies.

I read previously that immigrants from places like southern mexico tend to grow taller in the US, etc. The growth is mostly longer legs, i.e., the body proportions are different.

I' think they've done that study on just about every race on Earth.



Every conclusion-Once you adopt American living standards, you die early.

Obesity by Race/Ethnicity

New Obesity Data Shows Blacks Have the Highest Rates of Obesity


Black Non-Hispanic



Blacks had 51 percent higher prevalence of obesity, and Hispanics had 21 percent higher obesity prevalence compared with whites.

unfortunately, expect more situations similar to the Panama City School board shooing.

Our culture is pushing hundreds of thousands of perfectly normal [white] American men into a corner, where there is no acceptable escape other than to be demonized, ridiculed, blamed and taxed for the socially perceived ills of...  being a white, American male in the modern world.   Welfare familes?  Whitie's fault.   Economic collamity?   Rich Whitie's fault.   Mexican obesity?  Whitie's fault.  Get into a tussle with your friend?  Whitie's got aggression issues and needs to be medicated.   Stupid kids, failing educational system?   Whitie's a horrible father.   Gun ownership?   Whitie's a loose cannon and scares the neighbors - what does Whitie need an "assault rifle" for, anyway?  Kids are freaking out, throwing tantrums and threatening teachers?  Whitie doesn't control his kids, maybe the government should do it for him?   Kids are spanked and shown discipline?   Whitie abuses his children!   OMG - take those kids out of Whitie's abusive home!   Conservative mindset?  Bush is an imperialist, racist satan - and so is Whitie for voting for him.  Want a smaller government and more freedom?  Too bad, Whitie doesn't know what's best for himself, so we the Government will do what we want anyway.   Resurgence of Tea Party?   Whitie's an ignorant, racist tea bagger who watches too much Glenn Beck.....  

Repeat ad nauseum.

Collectively, as there is no reasonable, socially acceptable outlet for the cumulative frustrations of this generations-long feminization of the American male... combined with economic and political changes - I think more and more white, American males are going to start snapping in illogical, spectacular ways.

I'm kind of surprised it hasn't appeared to have happened yet, actually.

And lots of entitlements (government assistance, in state tuition, affirmative action).



Or a change in health and nutrition policy to reflect their home nation (will be easier to do once mommy government is providing everybodies health care).



Yep, living here is hazardous to your health. Go home.



Would rather live free and die earlier thank you very much.

When you go from 3 tortillas and some black beans a day, to 3 big macs a day, you get all unhealthy.  And boy, do they ever.

Between the bad water and limited dietary options, Mexico is THE place to be if you want to lose a lot of weight, fast.  Maybe I should start a business to take advantage of this....

“From a policy perspective, this highlights the necessity of improving access to and utilization of medical-care services among men,” Gorman says. “Not only would this help address an important unmet health need for many men, it would also permit health researchers to more accurately assess and forecast medical-care need and use among residents.”


Jesus effing christ! are we talking about legal or ILLEGAL immigrants here?? If they are legal ok, but this is one of the problems that goes unnoticed. Sure Illegals are good for depressing wages, making the rich richer and getting votes for democrats BUT THERE IS A BAD SIDE TO IT TOO!! They clog up the emergency rooms and the schools. Lest time i went to the emergency room, in 2005, it was packed, and it was packed with a certain ethnic group, you know what i'm saying? When my mom went in 2008 she waited 8 hours to be seen, again totally packed with illegals. WTF??????????

"It's Bushs' fault."

If he'd just built the wall...........


It has been about 5 years but I heard of a study that compared Mexicans from a specific area in Mexico against those from that area who had "immigrated" to the US.

The difference in longevity was marked.

I believe this could be said of a number of ethnic groups that relocate here, Japanese, for instance.

Doesn't surprise me at all.

In Mexico, the average working stiff tends to walk a lot - Cars are relatively expensive, parking spaces are hard to find, roads are bad, and traffic congestion in most Mexican cities makes LA or Houston look like a NASCAR track. Many folks use public transport (buses or subways), but have to walk in order to get to the nearest transit stop. Often, they're carrying, children, groceries or other items while they're doing it. That's a lot more exercise than the average American gets.

When they come to America, they tend to adopt the American lifestyle - which includes a car.
