The Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging (SALSA Study) project tracked the incidence of physical and cognitive impairment as well as dementia and cardiovascular diseases in elderly Latinos in the Sacramento, California, region. The SALSA project aimed to assess cognitive, physical, and social functions, which include the ability to follow instructions, to perform certain movements, and to interact with others. The study explored the effects that cultural, nutritional, social, and cardiovascular risk factors have on overall health and dementia, and examined the association between diabetes and functional status. This study contains the neuroclinical exam data from the SALSA project. Demographic information includes age given at follow-up visits, country of birth, language, religion, marital status, educational level, occupation, household income, and size of household. For additional information about the SALSA project and data, see the SALSA Web site.. ...

Mexican American women in the United States are more likely to live a sedentary lifestyle than women of other ethnic groups. As a result, obesity affects Mexican American women at a high rate. Obesity and a lack of physical activity are risk factors for many diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancers. Increasing physical activity can lead to weight loss and lower the risk of developing these diseases. This study represents a partnership between the University of South Carolina, the South Carolina Hispanic Latino Health Coalition, and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) Regional Academic Health Center in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Study researchers from these institutions will first conduct interviews and focus groups and then develop a program aimed at encouraging moderately intense physical activity among Mexican American women. Next, the study will evaluate the effectiveness of that program at increasing physical ...

The study is comprised of interviews from 227 Hispanic males aged 45 or older living in the area of Houston, Texas to address the gaps in knowledge on the social factors and health consequences of injection heroin use among aging Mexican American males. Specifically, the study investigated how the life course transitions of incarceration and drug treatment and drug abuse and family trajectories affect both the heroin career status and health consequences of these aging Mexican American men. The study used a cross-sectional, field-intensive outreach methodology augmented with respondent-driven sampling. Recruitment was focused in two Houston neighborhoods that are predominantly Mexican American areas with high rates of crime, poverty, and psychosocial challenges. Trained Outreach Specialists familiar with these communities identified community gatekeepers and gained their trust through continued presence in the community and ongoing dialogue about the study. These gatekeepers then helped identify ...
|i|SLC30A8|/i| encodes zinc transporter 8 which is involved in packaging and release of insulin. Evidence for the association of|i| SLC30A8|/i| variants with type 2 diabetes (T2D) is inconclusive. We interrogated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) around|i| SLC30A8|/i| for association with T2D in high-risk, pedigreed individuals from extended Mexican American families. This study of 118 SNPs within 50 kb of the|i| SLC30A8|/i| locus tested the association with eight T2D-related traits at four levels: (i) each SNP using measured genotype approach (MGA); (ii) interaction of SNPs with age and sex; (iii) combinations of SNPs using Bayesian Quantitative Trait Nucleotide (BQTN) analyses; and (iv) entire gene locus using the gene burden test. Only one SNP (rs7817754) was significantly associated with incident T2D but a summary statistic based on all T2D-related traits identified 11 novel SNPs. Three SNPs and one SNP were weakly but interactively associated with age and sex, respectively. BQTN analyses could
TY - JOUR. T1 - Do Mexican Americans perceive environmental issues differently than Caucasians. T2 - A study of cross-ethnic variation in percepitons related to water in Tucson. AU - Williams, Bryan L. AU - Florez, Yvette. PY - 2002/5/6. Y1 - 2002/5/6. N2 - Little is known about the environmental perceptions of our nations Mexican and Mexican American population, especially in the area of water quality. We examined these perceptions to determine the extent to which Caucasians and Mexican Americans living in the Tucson, Arizona, metropolitan area differ in their perceptions of water quality-related risk, inequity, trust, and participation in civic activities. Ethnic variations in perceptions toward inequity, trust, and public participation were observed even when socioeconomic variation between Caucasians and Mexican Americans was controlled. However, significant ethnic variations in perceptions of water quality-related risks were observed only when socioeconomic variation was not controlled. ...
The paper details new research that suggests that potential disparities in fruit and vegetable intake in Mexican American children may be placing them at greater risk for obesity and related health problems.. Childhood obesity is a major public health issue that disproportionately affects Mexican Americans, so to address the problem, Duggirala designed the San Antonio Family Assessment of Metabolic Risk Indicators in Youth (SAFARI) study. The study assessed childhood obesity and its related cardio-metabolic traits in Mexican American children and adolescents from San Antonio and surrounding areas, and determined how those traits were influenced by genetics and environment.. The family-based study enabled Duggirala, principal investigator on the study, and his colleagues to determine the relative roles of genes, and environmental factors like diet and physical activity on obesity-related traits in Mexican American youth. The current article highlights the importance of fruit and vegetable intake ...
There is considerable evidence that lipoproteina Lpa is a strong independent risk factor for coronary heart disease. Based on their risk factor profile, Mexican Americans have an increased risk of coronary heart disease, yet Mexican Americans have coronary heart disease mortality similar to or lower than that of non-Hispanic whites.

To understand the effect of diabetes on measures of lipoprotein phenotypes, we compared pairs of diabetic and nondiabetic individuals from the San Antonio Family Heart Study who were matched for age, sex, and menopausal status. Compared with nondiabetic populations, patients with diabetes have a twofold higher risk for cardiovascular disease.43 The common occurrence of risk factors in diabetic patients such as hypertension and obesity, in addition to age, smoking, and hypercholesterolemia, does not completely explain the increased morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease.44 Among other factors that could contribute, alterations in lipoprotein composition and concentration may be among the most important.. Different sizes of LDL have been resolved with the application of gradient gel electrophoresis.2 6 We adapted published protocols for casting nondenaturing gradient gels to separate on the basis of size LDL particles in plasma samples. We found that diabetic subjects had ...

Nearly 13% of Hispanic adults have type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and this population is 1.5 times more likely to die from the disease than non Hispanic Whites [1, 2]. However, among Mexican Americans, the largest Hispanic subpopulation, prevalence rates are even higher and are approaching 14% amongst adults 20 years of age and older [3]. For Mexican-American women, the threat of diabetes dominates their daily lives as they have higher prevalence rates than their male counterparts, and are more likely to experience risk factors such as obesity, being overweight, and having sedentary habits, compared to other women in general [4].. These factors and the complexity of diabetes and diabetes management present difficulties for both clinicians and patients. One of the most critical elements of diabetes self-management, but most challenging behaviors to tackle, is diet. The ways of food (foodways) are deeply entrenched in most cultures, including the Mexican-American culture. Therefore, diet is one of the ...
The significance of the family group in the Mexican-American culture emerged from the data. The importance of the extended and nuclear family as a significant social organization system (Kuipers, 1999) was illuminated throughout all interviews. The concept of familism, as discussed by the authors Zoucha & Purnell (2003), was supported by the words of all women in this exploration. Niska (1999) indicates that Mexican-American families rely on intergenerational helping networks. The following excerpts from interviews illustrate and validate the importance of the extended family in the Mexican-American culture: "I was there to help raise my three grandchildren ...while my children worked" "Whatever you do you always have your mother…your family" "I am very happy with my children...my boys and girls are doing ok" "We always do things together" [referring to siblings] The influence of the family was a dominant theme throughout the interviews and literature related to Mexican-American culture. The ...
In some cases, legal classification of white racial status has made it difficult for Mexican-American rights activists to prove minority discrimination. In the case Hernandez v. Texas (1954), civil rights lawyers for the appellant, named Pedro Hernandez, were confronted with a paradox: because Mexican Americans were classified as white by the federal government and not as a separate race in the census, lower courts held that they were not being denied equal protection by being tried by juries that excluded Mexican Americans by practice. The lower court ruled there was no violation of the Fourteenth Amendment by excluding people with Mexican ancestry among the juries. Attorneys for the state of Texas and judges in the state courts contended that the amendment referred only to racial, not "nationality," groups. Thus, since Mexican Americans were tried by juries composed of their racial group-whites-their constitutional rights were not violated. The US Supreme Court ruling in Hernandez v. Texas ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the health burden associated with concomitant depressive symptoms and diabetes in older Mexican Americans. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Data from the Hispanic Established Population for the Epidemiologic Study of the Elderly were used to assess the association between high levels of depressive symptoms, measured with the Center for Epidemiologic Studies of Depression scale, and comorbid chronic health conditions, diabetic complications, functional disability, health service use, and medication use among 636 older diabetic Mexican Americans, in comparison with 2,196 older nondiabetic Mexican Americans. RESULTS: Overall, 31.1% of the older diabetic individuals reported high levels of depressive symptoms. The risks of comorbid myocardial infarction, hypertension, arthritis, and angina were significantly higher in the presence of concomitant depressive symptoms, as were the risks of diabetic complications, functional disability, incontinence, vision impairment, poorer perceived ...
U.S.-born Mexican Americans suffer a large schooling deficit relative to other Americans, and standard data sources suggest that this deficit does not shrink between the 2nd and later generations. Standard data sources lack information on grandparents countries of birth, however, which creates potentially serious issues for tracking the progress of later-generation Mexican Americans. Exploiting unique NLSY97 data that address these measurement issues, we find substantial educational progress between the 2nd and 3rd generations for a recent cohort of Mexican Americans. Such progress is obscured when we instead mimic the limitations inherent in standard data sources. ...
Mexican Americans are 40 percent less likely than non-Hispanic whites to call 9-1-1 and be taken to the hospital via ambulance for stroke -- resulting in medical treatment delays -- according to a new study reported in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association. For the study, researchers used data from the Brain Attack Surveillance in Corpus Christi, Texas (BASIC project)
There were 2,604 ischemic strokes in Mexican Americans and 2,042 in non-Hispanic whites. The rate ratios (Mexican American:non-Hispanic white) were 1.94 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.67-2.25), 1.50 (95% CI = 1.35-1.67), and 1.00 (95% CI = 0.90-1.11) among those aged 45 to 59, 60 to 74, and 75 years and older, respectively, and 1.34 (95% CI = 1.23-1.46) when adjusted for age. Ischemic stroke incidence declined during the study period by 35.9% (95% CI = 25.9-44.5). The decline was limited to those aged ≥60 years, and happened in both ethnic groups similarly (p , 0.10), implying that the disparities seen in the 45- to 74-year age group persist unabated. ...
By the time they are teens, second-generation Mexican Americans overwhelming prefer to speak English rather than Spanish, and by the third generation most Mexican Americans no longer speak Spanish at all.". Bullcrap. Where is this sh*t coming from? Maybe this was true back in the 1970s, but it sure as hell isnt any longer. Ahorita la verdad es una cosa muy diferente!. I know this site leans in a conservative direction and Im a conservative Republican myself, but honestly, I dont get this lame, sorry-assed obsession among some conservatives with the English-only crap. Theyre losers. Obsessing about the language people use is a French thing to do, not something that we supposedly self-confident Americans are supposed to be fretting about. As a small business entrepreneur whos been working in the industry for a decade, I can tell you that the tremendous and growing importance of Spanish is due to market forces, supposedly the sort of thing that the Republican Party is a defender of and why ...

At the age of nine, I, along with my eight-year-old sister and my thirteen-year-old brother, became prune pickers. My family had moved from Oaxaca, Mexico, to Northern California to join my father, who had immigrated before us as an undocumented worker. Working alongside us were poor White children-who were openly called "Okies"-and Black children, as well as Mexican immigrant and Mexican American families. We were all migrants to the Sonoma County farms. It was very exciting to meet kids from all over the West, including migrant families from inland California and Mexican American migrants from Southern Texas. We picked crops together, shared the same improvised outhouses and common showers, and lived in tents at the same labor camp. There was another camp next to us that housed Filipino workers-all single, older men who had been denied the right to marry. My father enjoyed their company and so did I. They were friendly and knew Spanish, and I did not speak English. I particularly liked their ...

The prevalence rates of type 2 diabetes and its complications including diabetic nephropathy have been rapidly increasing globally, especially in the western world. In the U.S., the occurrence of type 2 diabetes and its complications is high in minority populations such as Mexican Americans, the largest subgroup of the U.S. Hispanic population. Because these disease conditions are influenced by genetic and environmental factors and their interaction, numerous studies have attempted to localize susceptibility genes for nephropathy and its related conditions such as GFR in type 2 diabetes, although the specific genes that underlie such susceptibility have yet to be identified.. In this study, we used data from a Mexican-American population that is at high risk for type 2 diabetes and its complications to examine the genetic determinants of GFR and to determine the influence of G × DM interaction on variation in GFR. We found that the phenotypes GFR-CGc and GFR-4VMDRD are significantly heritable ...
Background: Epidemiologic studies indicate that Mexican Americans (MA) have a higher prevalence of CV risk factors and disease as compared with non-Hispanic whites (NHW). This increase in CV risk may be due, in part, to differences in endothelial function. In this study, we measured endothelial function in cells from normotensive, age-matched MA and NHW donors, as well as the effects of treatment with nebivolol, a new β1-selective blocker with vasodilating properties.. Methods: Endothelial nitric oxide (NO) and peroxynitrite (ONOO−) release in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) from age-matched MA and NHW donors were measured simultaneously using a nanosensor array. The effects of nebivolol on NO and ONOO− release were evaluated following pretreatment (24 h) with a calcium ionophore (CaI) as a receptor-independent stimulus. Endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) levels were measured by Western blot analysis, and drug-membrane interactions were determined by small angle x-ray ...
Hispanic/Latinos will comprise more than 30% of the U.S. population by mid-century, and Mexican Americans account for the largest share of this growin
This study in a large, well-characterized sample of Mexican American participants in the SAFHS9 demonstrated that the arterial PP and SBP shared 36% and 22% of genetic variance with the WB FA of WM, respectively. In the past, the integrity of cerebral WM was commonly assessed using the T2-hyperintense WM (HWM) lesion imaging techniques.5,-,8 HWM lesions are the regions of accumulation of extracellular water attributable to focal degradation of the myelin sheath,14 and their volume is an important neuroimaging marker of cerebral integrity.26 DTI has an advantage over HWM-imaging techniques because it is capable of ascertaining subtle WM damage that precedes formation of HWM lesions.10 Several recent studies confirmed that DTI is a sensitive neuroimaging marker of WM integrity in hypertensive individuals.10,27,28 Specifically, FA values were inversely correlated with the arterial PP and SBP in both normotensive and hypertensive individuals.27. The PP shared more genetic variance with the WB-FA ...
Associations were found between rs9919713 and fasting glucose (P = 2.3 x 10-4) and type-2 diabetes (P = 9.0 x 10-3) in Mexican-American women. In Mexican-American men from the Rancho Bernardo population, the opposite effect was found.[PMID 20085651 ...
Evidence from migrant population studies and secular trend data indicates that environmental factors play a role in the etiology of non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetes. These environmental factors appear to be concomitants of the process whereby traditional populations become "modernized" or "westernized" and include increased intake of total calories, fat, and sucrose, decreased intake of total and complex carbohydrates, including fiber, and decreased physical exercise. There also appears to be a "postmodernization" process, which we have characterized as the "descending limb of the curve." In Mexican Americans in San Antonio, the prevalence of type II diabetes declines with acculturation to the values, attitudes, and behaviors of "postmodernized" American society. However, examination of the dietary and exercise concomitants of this process revealed a mixed picture. There was some suggestion that Mexican-American women, although not men, had entered onto the descending limb of the curve. ...
Simple genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and thalassaemia are just that - simple. A single gene underlies them. Finding it is like climbing a steep hill - hard work but straightforward. Complex disorders, such as asthma and type 2 diabetes, by contrast, have many components, which makes finding a cause more like scaling Everest - far harder, requiring more specialist equipment and the strong possibility of failure.. In work published in the October issue of Nature Genetics, University of Chicago researchers have cleared a path to studying the genetic foundation of type 2, or non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). In a study of a Mexican-American population and two white populations (Finns and Germans) they have found that small genetic variations, called single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), in a particular gene tend to occur more often in diabetics than in healthy relatives. Although finding a common genetic variation in family groups affected by simple genetic disorders is ...

Background:. More than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. Obesity affects some groups more than others; 42.5% of Hispanic adults are obese, compared to 32.6% of non-Hispanic whites (NHW). In addition, an analysis of recent statistics shows significant increasing trends among women for overall obesity. National Health & Nutrition Examination Survey data shows that between 2007-2010, Mexican American women were 40% more likely to be overweight, as compared to NHW. Contributors to higher rates of obesity among Hispanics include higher rates of food insecurity, limited access to safe places for physical activity, and targeted marketing of unhealthy foods. With high obesity rates among Hispanics, increasing awareness and knowledge about healthier lifestyles has become an important component for many public health interventions. Promotores can play an important role in promoting culturally and linguistically appropriate health education for obesity prevention.. Eat Healthy, Be Active (EHBA) community ...
While the concept of defeat in the Mexican literary canon is frequently acknowledged, it has rarely been explored in the fullness of the psychological and religious contexts that define this aspect of "mexicanidad." Going beyond the simple narrative of self-defeat, The Uses of Failure in Mexican Literature and Identity presents a model of failure as a source of knowledge and renewed self-awareness. Studying the relationship between national identity and failure, John Ochoa revisits the foundational texts of Mexican intellectual and literary history, the "national monuments," and offers a new vision of the pivotal events that echo throughout Mexican aesthetics and politics. The Uses of Failure in Mexican Literature and Identity encompasses five centuries of thought, including the works of the Conquistador Bernal Díaz del Castillo, whose sixteenth-century True History of the Conquest of New Spain formed Spanish-speaking Mexicos early self-perceptions; José Vasconcelos, the essayist and ...
The U.S. obesity prevalence increased from 13 percent to 32 percent between the 1960s and 2004, according to researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Human Nutrition. The prevalence of obesity and overweight has increased at an average rate of 0.3 - 0.8 percentage points across different sociodemographic groups over the past three decades. Some minority and low socioeconomic status groups - such as non-Hispanic black women and children, Mexican-American women and children, low socioeconomic status black men and white women and children, Native Americans and Pacific Islanders - are disproportionately affected. The meta-analysis was published online on May 17, 2007, in advance of the 2007 issue of the journal Epidemiologic Reviews ...
Women at high risk of diabetes are more likely than are women not at high risk to describe their health as "fair" or "poor," and are less likely to exercise for at least 150 minutes per week, says a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC) and the Agency for Healthcare Research (AHRQ). Based on data from 2003-2006, the report presents measures of health care quality as they relate to access to care, general health and well-being, and preventive care and behaviors. The data show that women at high risk of diabetes are more likely to be aware of having such risk factors as hypertension and overweight, and are less likely to smoke or consume alcohol. Findings also indicate, however, that disparities exist in access to and quality of care among women at high risk and lower risk for diabetes. For example, awareness of hypertensive status was lowest among Mexican-American women and highest among African-American women, regardless of diabetes risk status. Awareness of ...

If the trends of those years continue, the researchers estimate that 86 percent of American adults will be overweight by 2030, with an obesity rate of 51 percent. By 2048, all U.S. adults could be at least mildly overweight. Weight problems will be most acute among African-Americans and Mexican- Americans, the study projects. All black women could be overweight by 2034, according to the researchers, as could more than 90 percent of Mexican-American men.. All of this rests on the "big assumption" that the trends of recent decades will march on unabated, Liang acknowledged..
