Latino Paradox video

The video “Latino Paradox” talks about how Latinos are healthier physically and psychologically when they come to the United States. According to health data gathered by researchers going door to door Latinos have the best health in the Alameda County, lower hearth disease rate and lowest rate on deaths. It surprising to a lot of people because they have better health than the wealthy, even after having more stress and lower income.

My impression about this video was that we could all agree that money cannot buy health and even if Latinos have more stressful lives and have lower income than the average Americans they tend to have better health. However, Latinos still need to take care of their health and make good choices in order for it not to decrease.
