Heart disease is the leading cause of death among Latinos, as it is for all Americans. But Latinos are generally unaware that the risk factors for heart disease, including high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, overweight, physical inactivity, and cigarette smoking can be controlled and prevented,” said NHLBI Director Dr. Claude Lenf
The whole article is about raising awareness and improving the health of LATINOS, they don't give a flying crap about White, Black, Asian, Indian or anyone else, just Latinos. Seems a little biased and racist to me, but I wouldn't expect anything less from "The race".

Despite NCLR's bleatings; there is no 'Hispanic' race---------if anything, most North American Latinos are American Indian, genetically speaking, yet do not admit to it.

I was trying to avoid mentioning that this time---------I have touched on the White Supremacy of Hispanic culture previously.

Mestizos: ashamed of their Indian heritage yet are ostracized by White Hispanics.

That would be a miserable place to be; culturally speaking.

The key away from that failure mentality seems to be education and giving up self destructive behavior as in heavy drinking, machismo, buying cheap bling, etc.
