Summary for Latino paradox

The Latino paradox summary:
The name of the video is aptly named, because Latinos who are considered the American minorities and receive lower income, education and standard of living, are showing fewer signs of illnesses, ranging from “cardiovascular diseases, cancer” and many others. The richer classes on the other hand show higher statistics of being victims of such diseases.

Response: This is ironic because the richer people usually should have more income, and can afford better healthcare. What this implies is that not only is healthcare possibly not as effective as a healthy living style, but richer could mean more indulgence and thus less healthy habits, such as convenient buying of snacks and junk food. The richer, the easier. The easier, the lazier. The lazier, the less healthy it is.
