Latinos Live Longer than Non-Latinos


CDC has determined Hispanics have the longest life-expectancy.
A Centers for Disease Control report projects that Hispanics born in 2006 have a life expectancy of 80 years, seven months. That compares to about 78 years for whites and just under 73 years for blacks.
In addition, when it comes to breast cancer, prostate cancer and heart disease, Latino patients in the U.S. survive longer after diagnosis than their non-Latino white and black counterparts This advantage in life expectancy comes despite the fact that Hispanics have fewer resources and less access to care than non-Latino whites – a phenomenon referred to “Hispanic paradox.”
