The video “Arriving Healthy” shows that new immigrants are healthier then the rest of the population in the United States. However, their good health does not stay.They get unhealthy within time.
My reaction to this video was not surprising, me, being an immigrant from Mexico went through the same situation. I don’t believe I’m unhealthy, but not as healthy as used to be when I was living in Mexico. When I was living at Mexico, I used to not drink many soft drinks or bottled juices. I also did not eat fast food, and I used to walk everywhere instead of using the car. I believe the immigrants health decreases after a while of living in the united states because they are usaully so busy working, and they have a really stress lifestyle, that even their eating time changes, they eat at different times or start eating fast food.
