Hispanics seem to disproportionately suffer health problems compared to white people

The 35 million Hispanics in the US make up the largest minority group and are expected to account for 24.5% of the population by 2050. Officials claim that this is daunting when taking into account the fact that Hispanics are more likely than whites to suffer or die from things like obesity, diabetes, strokes, AIDS and liver disease. Researchers from CDC believe that these health problems amongst Hispanics could stem from lifestyle choices such as diet and level of activity.
