Changes across 3 years in self-reported awareness of product warning messages in a Hispanic community. (1/654)

This study investigated the self-reported awareness of product warning messages among independent random samples of Hispanics in San Francisco surveyed from 1989 through 1992. Messages tested were primarily related to cigarette smoking and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. In general, respondents reported low levels of awareness of product warning messages with the exception of those messages dealing with the consumption of alcohol or cigarettes during pregnancy. Nevertheless, there were increases in awareness across years for the alcohol-related warning messages and for one of the cigarette messages, indicating that continued exposure increases awareness of the message. A notable proportion of the respondents reported being aware of a bogus message implying the presence of socially desirable responses in self-reports of message awareness. Gender, education, age and acculturation level of the respondents also showed effects on reported awareness of specific messages. Continued exposure to product warning messages seems useful in producing health-enhancing behaviors among Hispanics.  (+info)

Cardiovascular risk factors in Mexican American adults: a transcultural analysis of NHANES III, 1988-1994. (2/654)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the extent to which cardiovascular disease risk factors differ among subgroups of Mexican Americans living in the United States. METHODS: Using data from a national sample (1988-1994) of 1387 Mexican American women and 1404 Mexican American men, aged 25 to 64 years, we examined an estimate of coronary heart disease mortality risk and 5 primary cardiovascular disease risk factors: systolic blood pressure, body mass index, cigarette smoking, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Differences in risk were evaluated by country of birth and primary language spoken. RESULTS: Estimated 10-year coronary heart disease mortality risk per 1000 persons, adjusted for age and education, was highest for US-born Spanish-speaking men and women (27.5 and 11.4, respectively), intermediate for US-born English-speaking men and women (22.5 and 7.0), and lowest for Mexican-born men and women (20.0 and 6.6). A similar pattern of higher risk among US-born Spanish-speaking men and women was demonstrated for each of the 5 cardiovascular disease risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: These findings illustrate the heterogeneity of the Mexican American population and identify a new group at substantial risk for cardiovascular disease and in need of effective heart disease prevention programs.  (+info)

Illness and treatment perceptions of Ethiopian immigrants and their doctors in Israel. (3/654)

OBJECTIVES: Patient-provider misunderstandings arising from disparate medical and cultural concepts can impede health care among immigrant populations. This study assessed the extent of disagreement and identified the salient problems of communication between Israeli doctors and Ethiopian immigrant patients. METHODS: Semistructured interviews were conducted with 59 Ethiopian immigrants. Self-reports of health status and effectiveness of treatment were compared with evaluations by the primary care physician and supplemented by qualitative data from descriptions of illness, observations of medical visits, informant interviews, and participant observations conducted by the anthropologist. RESULTS: Health status and effectiveness of treatment were rated significantly higher by the doctor than by the patients. Low doctor-patient agreement occurred mainly for illnesses with stress-related or culture-specific associations. Qualitative data suggested that more long-term immigrants may alter their expectations of treatment but continue to experience symptoms that are culturally, but not biomedically, meaningful. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings between immigrant patients and their doctors emerge from the biomedical system's limitations in addressing stress-related illnesses and from culture-based discrepancies in concepts of illness and healing. Including trained translators in medical teams can reduce medical misunderstandings and increase patient satisfaction among immigrant populations.  (+info)

Is acculturation a risk factor for early smoking initiation among Chinese American minors? A comparative perspective. (4/654)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent to which Chinese American and white minors differ in age of smoking initiation, and to determine the effect of acculturation on smoking initiation. DESIGN: Cross-sectional telephone surveys. SETTING: Stratified random samples of the state of California, United States. SUBJECTS: 347 Chinese American and 10 129 white adolescents aged 12 through 17 years, from the California Tobacco Survey (1990-93) and the California Youth Tobacco Survey (1994-96). OUTCOME MEASURES: Hazards (risk) of smoking initiation by age, smoking initiation rate, cumulative smoking rate, mean age of smoking initiation, and acculturation status. STATISTICAL METHODS: Life table methods, proportional hazards models, and chi(2) tests. RESULTS: The risk of smoking initiation by age among Chinese American minors was about a third of that among white minors. The risk for Chinese Americans continued to rise even in later adolescence, in contrast to that for whites, which slowed after 15 years of age. Acculturation was associated significantly with smoking onset among Chinese Americans. Acculturation, smoking among social network members, attitudes toward smoking, and perceived benefits of smoking were associated with the difference in hazards of smoking onset between Chinese American minors and their white counterparts. CONCLUSIONS: Chinese American adolescents had a lower level and a different pattern of smoking onset than white adolescents. Levels of acculturation and other known risk factors were associated with the hazards of smoking initiation among Chinese American minors and with the difference in smoking initiation between the Chinese and white adolescents. Tobacco prevention policies, strategies, and programmes for ethnically diverse populations should take acculturation factors into account.  (+info)

Beyond artificial, sex-linked distinctions to conceptualize female sexuality: comment on Baumeister (2000) (5/654)

The authors comment on three aspects of R. F. Baumeister's (2000) theoretical article on female sexuality. Questioning the predominance of nature versus cultural factors in accounting for sexual outcomes for men and women, the authors draw attention to the similarities (as opposed to differences) in the sexual attitudes, behaviors, and responses of men and women, and directly question the suggestion of "controlling" women's sexual attitudes, behaviors, responses, etc. to meet social needs for change.  (+info)

Differences in energy, nutrient, and food intakes in a US sample of Mexican-American women and men: findings from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994. (6/654)

As Mexican-American women and men migrate to the United States and/or become more acculturated, their diets may become less healthy, increasing their risk of cardiovascular disease. Data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994) were used to compare whether energy, nutrient, and food intakes differed among three groups of Mexican-American women (n = 1,449) and men (n = 1,404) aged 25-64 years: those born in Mexico, those born in the United States whose primary language was Spanish, and those born in the United States whose primary language was English. Percentages of persons who met the national dietary guidelines for fat, fiber, and potassium and the recommended intakes of vitamins and minerals associated with cardiovascular disease were also compared. In general, Mexican Americans born in Mexico consumed significantly less fat and significantly more fiber; vitamins A, C, E, and B6; and folate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium than did those born in the United States, regardless of language spoken. More women and men born in Mexico met the dietary guidelines or recommended nutrient intakes than those born in the United States. The heart-healthy diets of women and men born in Mexico should be encouraged among all Mexican Americans living in the United States, especially given the increasing levels of obesity and diabetes among this rapidly growing group of Americans.  (+info)

Recency of immigration, substance use, and sexual behavior among Massachusetts adolescents. (7/654)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationships between recency of immigration, substance use, and sexual behavior. METHODS: Surveys were conducted with 2635 Massachusetts 8th and 10th graders that allowed comparisons of health behaviors and risk and protective factors among students living in the United States "always," more than 6 years, or 6 years or less. RESULTS: Compared with lifetime residents, immigrant youths (particularly those living in the United States 6 years or less) reported lower lifetime and recent alcohol and marijuana use (P < .001); sexual intercourse rates were similar across groups. However, recent immigrants were most likely to report peer pressures to engage in, and less parental support to avoid, risk behaviors (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: A window of opportunity exists to provide primary prevention programs in schools to immigrant youths that may reduce adolescent health risk behaviors.  (+info)

Acculturation and leisure-time physical inactivity in Mexican American adults: results from NHANES III, 1988-1994. (8/654)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationship between acculturation and leisure-time physical inactivity among Mexican American adults. METHODS: Using data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, we estimated the prevalence of physical inactivity according to place of birth and language used at home. RESULTS: Spanish-speaking Mexican Americans had a higher prevalence of physical inactivity during leisure time than those who spoke mostly English, independent of place of birth. CONCLUSIONS: Acculturation seems to be positively associated with participation in leisure-time physical activity.  (+info)

The purpose of this study was to examine print literacy, acculturation, and acculturative stress among one-hundred and six Mexican immigrant women participating in a family literacy program. The two hypotheses were: (1.) There is a relationship between (a) print literacy as measured by the Print Literacy Questionnaire and (b) acculturation as measured by the Multidimensional Acculturation Scale, and (2.) There is a relationship between (a) print literacy as measured by the Print Literacy Questionnaire and (b) acculturative stress as measured by the Multidimensional Acculturative Stress Inventory. This study applied canonical correlation and multiple regression analyses. Statistically significant (p|0.05) findings supported the first hypothesis. The findings for the second hypothesis were not significant (p=0.725). Two additional findings for the first hypothesis were: (1.) that adult reading and writing in English related to American acculturation; and (2.) that parents reading
As stated previously, acculturation has been investigated in conjunction with a number of physical, social and psychological variables. In a study of weight concern and body image among southern African American Females, Smith and Omari (2005) hypothesized that there would be a positive relationship between cultural values (levels of acculturation) and Body Mass Index (BMI) in their sample. The premise of their study was that African American women with more traditional values would have higher BMI scores, primarily because it has been reported in the literature that African American women are comfortable with larger body size (Striegel-Moore et al., 1998). The hypothesis was not supported. They found that contrary to their expectations, acculturation was not significantly associated with BMI in African American females. This failure to detect an association between BMI and acculturation led to a question about the latent factor structure of the African American Acculturation Scale (AAAS-R) in ...
The objective of this secondary analysis was to examine the role of acculturation and self-reported hypertension in a Mexican-American cohort from Harris County, Texas. Specifically, we examined the acculturation measures of language-based Bidimensional Acculturation Scale (BAS), nativity, and length of United States (U.S) residency. Of 6,229 participants aged 40 and older, 38.0% self-reported hypertension at baseline. Multiple logistic regression was used to estimate the prevalence odds ratios (pOR) for the association of each acculturation measure and hypertension while controlling for confounding. When adjusted for age, gender, body mass index, number of comorbidities, and family history of hypertension, U.S.-born participants were 1.37 times more likely to report having hypertension compared to Mexico-born participants (95% CI: 1.21, 1.55). Similarly, immigrants residing in the U.S. for more than 20 years had an adjusted pOR of 1.40 (95% CI: 1.16, 1.70) as compared to immigrants living in the U.S.

This cross-sectional study recruited a sample of 470 Hispanic women between 22- and 24-week gestation from physician practices and community clinics. We used the CES-D to measure maternal depressive symptoms. We measured acculturation by English proficiency on the Bidimensional Acculturation Scale, residence index by years in the USA minus age, nativity, and generational status. Serum progesterone and E3 were analyzed by EIA. Ultrasound and medical records determined gestational age after delivery. In x analysis, there were a significantly greater percentage of women ...
Acculturation has emerged as an independent risk factor for different health practices across immigrant groups. Prompted by evidence of increasing melanoma incidence among Latinos, the present research investigated the impact of acculturation on Latinos sun safety. Data from 496 Latino respondents to the 2005 Health Information National Trends Survey were analyzed with multiple linear regression and structural equation models. Sunscreen use, seeking shade and wearing protective clothing were the primary outcomes, assessed by frequency scales. Acculturation was the primary predictor, assessed by a composite index. The direct, mediated, and moderated effects of acculturation on sun-safe behaviors were investigated in three studies. Hypothesized mediators included health status, education, and social networks; hypothesized moderators included gender, age, region, and health insurance status.; In adjusted models in Study 1, increased acculturation was associated with decreased use of shade or ...
The purpose of this research is the analysis of the effects of socio - economic factors on acculturation of pre students in Shiraz. In this research (after examining of the previous studies and existing theories) to explain the concept of acculturation the theories of Rogers and Bits have been used and also the socio - economic factors of Parsons theory have been applied. The research is in the form of survey method. In which 400 questionnaires were given to the students randomly. But regarding the sample size by using the Cochran formula (382 persons) 390 questionnaire were analyzed. Pearson correlation test, the rate of the parents income, the familys cost of living, the parents education and the use of computer and internet usage had a significant relationship with the students acculturation. But the relationship between watching T.V, listening to the Radio, reading journals and the number of the people in family (sister and brother) from one hand with the students acculturation was not
Purpose: To assess the impact of factors related to migration and acculturation (country of birth, age at migration and language spoken at home) on refractive errors in the US.. Methods: A total of 5365 adults (2083 Whites, 1464 Blacks, 1175 Hispanics and 643 Chinese) aged 45 to 84 years living in the U.S participated in the study. Information regarding acculturation level including country of birth, age at migration and language spoken at home were collected from interviews. Non-cycloplegic refraction was performed in both eyes of all participants using an autorefractor (NIDEK ARK-760 Autorefractor). Myopia was defined as spherical equivalent of -1.0 diopters (D) or less in the right eye while hyperopia was defined as SE of 1.0 D or more. Multivariate logistic regression model was used to estimate the association between the acculturation variables and myopia.. Results: Participants born in the US were more likely to have myopia (odds ratio [OR]: 1.28; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.03, 1.61) ...

The present research found that acculturation occurred in the study population in two different forms: changes in lifestyle and dietary acculturation. These findings are congruent with previous studies among migrants from South America, Asia, South-East Asia and Africa to the USA, Canada and Australia( 10 , 13 , 22 - 25 ). The findings from the study suggest that lifestyle changes encountered by refugees related to adapting to the fast-paced and time-constrained lifestyle in Australia which, coupled with a cooler climate, created less time available for physical activity hence increasing the risk of obesity. This is supported by a study by Renzaho et al.( 9 ) which examined lifestyle changes among sub-Saharan African migrants and identified four levels of acculturation: integration (accepting both African and Australian ways of life), assimilation (rejecting African orientation and fully accepting Australian ways of life), marginalisation (rejecting both African and Australian orientations) and ...

While on a global scale consumers are becoming more homogeneous, as a result of the increasingly globalized marketplace, researchers suggest that consumers within individual countries are becoming more culturally heterogeneous. Consequently, M. Cleveland and J. Laroche (2007. Acculturation to the global consumer culture: Scale development and research paradigm. Journal of Business Research, 60, 249-259) advocate segmenting consumers across markets on the basis of acculturation to the global consumer culture (AGCC) rather than segmenting at the individual country level. In this they anticipate AGCC will reflect demographic characteristics. However, little empirical work exists to validate or challenge the assertion that demographics moderate AGCC. This exploratory study uses generational cohort theory (GCT) to examine the relationships between cohort membership and level of AGCC among a sample of US consumers (N = 492). The findings suggest AGCC does identify differences between cohorts.. ...

This study found that both conventional stroke risk factors and access to care/acculturation variables are associated with stroke in MAs and NHWs. Health disparities likely exist with respect to stroke in MAs and NHWs,2,3,15 and the present study shows that there are relatively small differences among these groups with respect to the differential impact of currently known biological or social factors. Results of this study suggest that risk factor reduction and attention to access to care variables are likely to reduce the burden of stroke in both ethnic populations.. There were similar ethnic results in the association of socioeconomic status (SES) and stroke (Table 3). In this study, SES measures (education and income) were considered measures of access to care. SES was included in access to care analyses because low SES has been shown to be associated with less access to care and less healthcare usage, even among those with health insurance.15-17 Indeed, among both ethnicities, there was no ...
In the summer of 2006 The Marin Foundation began to facilitate a four year research study called Religious Acculturation within the LGBT Community. To the researchers knowledge, it has since turned into the largest national research study ever done within the LGBT and religious communities. At the studys projected conclusion on August 1, 2010, TMF is on pace to have achieved their goal of N = 2,000 national participants from the LGBT community, setting the standard for religious research within the LGBT community. (We ended up with 1,713 usable participants).. The goal of the study is to look at the acculturation levels of those within the LGBT community to their past, present and future spiritual and religious practices, if any exist; and how the different constructs surrounding sexuality and religion/spirituality are correlated to those practices. While there has been other research done on LGBT acculturation (Alquijay, 1997; Magana & Carrier, 1991; Seibt et al., 1995); as well as previous ...
Objectives: To determine if acculturation is associated with smoking, alcohol use, and physical activity among older Mexican Americans. Methods: Multivariate analyses of data from the Hispanic Established Populations for the Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly (H-EPESE) were used. Results: Those who were more proficient in English were more likely to be former or current smokers than nonsmokers and former or current drinkers than abstainers. In addition, those who had greater contact with AngloAmericans were more likely to be former or current smokers than nonsmokers and former or current drinkers than abstainers. Conclusions: These results can assist health promotion programs in identifying those most at risk of engaging in negative health behaviors ...

The findings of several research studies suggest that gender, culture, and ethnic group are associated reliably with differences in workplace behaviors. This paper looks beyond demographic differences to a broader concept of group-based differences and addresses how differences in the behavioral reactions of outgroup sales trainees affect sales managers attempts to socialize them into the organization. It is important for sales managers to be able to understand how differences are related to workplace behavior as sales forces become increasingly diverse. A framework and research propositions are offered based on theories of socialization, acculturation, and person--organization fit. In addition, interviews were conducted with salespeople to assess the viability of the proposed framework. Several areas of future research emerge as a result of this exploratory discussion ...
Acculturation is the process through which immigrants adjust to the mainstream culture of their newly adopted home. For some, the process of adjusting to a new culture can be very difficult. Individuals may feel discomfort because of perceptions of being uprooted, loss of social status, altered family roles in the new country and perceptions of being excluded and discriminated against. New immigrants are often poor, underemployed, and may also experience loneliness and anxiety. Immigrants experiencing stress due to adjustment difficulties may turn to gambling as a way to cope.. ...

From my experiences of being a first generation Thai American I can probably write a book on my experiences and views growing up on the threshhold that we know as the Thai and Thai American culture. When it comes to the question of whether to assimilate or not to assimilate, I must say that the correct question, for Thais and all Asian ethnicities, is whether to educate or not to educate themselves with American culture. By this I mean that many Thais come to America thinking only about work and new job opportunities for themselves while not thinking about the long term social and moral consequences for themselves, their commnunity, and their children in America. The question of assimilating radically answers two questions on the opposite sides of the spectrum that are not favorable: to assimilate is to abandon ones culture and to not assimilate is to not pay ones dues, if you will, in a new country. Either way, loyalties are skewed. This proves to be an obstacle for all Asians and Asian ...

We will begin to see how the New Testament texts use deep-rooted values and codes to uphold a faithful and obedient response to God, and to sustain the new community in its quest to be conformed to the image of Christ and no longer to the society from which it had separated itself.[1] So says David deSilva in his work in Honor, Patronage, Kinship & Purity. The point is that the group was far more prominent in Greco-Roman culture than it is in many western cultures today and that is especially true in American culture. The extreme individualism of American culture is really quite antithetical to the culture in which the NT documents began to exist. This fact has served as a serious impediment to the American Christians ability to understand the text of NT Scripture. If we had a better grasp of the "group" we would be in a much better place to understand how the audience of the NT saw themselves within the context of the Christian group. Notice that deSilva implies the existence of a group was in ...

Cannabis has taken the healing and smokeable herb spotlight in the Western world for many years. It is recorded that recreational use of marijuana was first introduced to American culture after the Mexican Revolution in 1910. From there it has remained an herb of controversy. In recent years, studies have proven marijuana to be effective in treating glaucoma, improving lung health in cigarette smokers, reducing epileptic seizures, decreasing anxiety, stopping cancer cells from spreading, easing pain associated with several disease processes (i.e. multiple sclerosis and arthritis), calming the effects of PTSD, and providing a host of other physical, mental, and spiritual benefits to users.. Kudos to the powerful plant, but lets not forget that there are many healing herbs in the world - each holding a unique vibration and providing an assortment of benefits to the mind, body, and spirit. Soon we will discuss the physical and spiritual benefits of sage a powerful, legal, and smokeable herb, but ...

Yes other cultures in other countries. Branding your child is not part of the American culture. When you live in a society there are rules in place to keep it functioning smoothly. Those rules come from peoples morals, and if you break those rules you have to answer to the society that you are a part of. In American society taking a red hot piece of metal and applying it to your childs flesh is not acceptable. To the overwhelming majority of our society it is considered child abuse so if he is found guilty he must suffer the consequences of his actions. That is what people agree to when they choose to live within a society ...
It is one of the foundational myths of contemporary liberalism: the idea that American culture in the 1950s was not only stifling in its banality but a subtle form of fascism that constituted a danger to the Republic. Whatever the excesses of the 1960s might have been, so the argument goes, that decade represented the necessary struggle to free Americas mind-damaged automatons from their captivity at the hands of the Lords of Conformity and Kitsch. And yet, from a remove of more than a half century, we can see that the 1950s were in fact a high point for American culture-a period when many in the vast middle class aspired to elevate their tastes and were given the means and opportunity to do so.. The wildly successful attack on American popular culture in the 1950s was an outgrowth of noxious ideas that consumed the intellectual classes of the West in the first five decades of the 20th century-ideas so vague and so general that they were not discredited by the unprecedented flowering of popular ...

Cool has ruined American culture. Im prepared to argue that the damage is permanent. Nerd (as the opposite of the cool) is the way that the ignorant and their apologist/enablers in media compartmentalize and marginalize people who have the intelligence and the determination to alter the culture to fit their vision. Everyone takes math, right? But who is the math nerd? The kid who is good at it. The kids who works at it. See math is hard for everyone, even the people who do well in it. The difference is that the accomplished students struggle to understand the material. The cool people give up on understanding it, or they convey the impression that they dont want to understand it. But our culture holds the latter condition in higher regard. Better to be ignorant and look good while doing it than achieve something and look like youve made all the sacrifices and expended all the effort that would be expected in reaching that goal ...
