    ATLANTA – U.S. Hispanics can expect to outlive whites by more than two years and blacks by more than seven, government researchers say in a startling report that is the first to calculate Hispanic life expectancy in this country.

    The report released Wednesday is the strongest evidence yet of what some experts call the "Hispanic paradox" — longevity for a population with a large share of poor, undereducated members. A leading theory is that Hispanics who manage to immigrate to the U.S. are among the healthiest from their countries.

    A Hispanic born in 2006 could expect to live about 80 years and seven months, the government estimates. Life expectancy for a white is about 78, and for a black, just shy of 73 years.

    New Census Milestone: Hispanics to Hit 50 Million
    Thursday, March 24, 2011 Washington (AP) - In a surprising show of growth, Hispanics accounted for more than half of the U.S. population increase over the last decade, exceeding estimates in most states. Pulled by migration to the Sun Belt, America's population center edged westward on a historic path to leave the Midwest.

    It won't be long until they are the majority. It's just a matter of time. We better figure out how we are going to educate these people, because no matter what we think we might do, we are not going to send them back to Mexico. They are here and their numbers are growing. They need to be educated to the same levels as Whites and Asians, or they will drag this country right down the toilet. If their numbers continue to increase (which they will), and the percentages of them that remain below the poverty level remain constant or actually increase, it will have drastic effects on payments into SS, Medicare, and every level of government which will force those who have to pay even more.

    The upfront cost of educating these people will be extremely high. However, the cost of doing nothing will be much higher.

    Unfortunately, that is the type of attitude that will lead the US to being just like Mexico, with more than half of our country living below the poverty level.

    In 1950, the average Mexican living in Mexico lived to 50 years of age.

    In 2005, the average Mexican living in Mexico lived to 72 years of age. That is just 2 or 3 years less than the average US American at that time.

    Source :United Nations stats.

    Reason? Since 1950, the United States has dumped billions of dollars in aid in Latin America along with healthcare that other poorer nations around the world do not receive.

    Mexico is not a poor country. There are 125 countries around the world that are poorer. But it is a third world culture and most of their people could care less about the rest of the world and its problems.

    Why aren't whites living as long as hispanics? Based on the amount of illegals of hispanics countries stealing aid in the US and preventing others from receiving it, the answer is quite simple. Poor white and black Americans are being cheated out of this aid in their own country.

    This can be observed at any Department of Human Serevices center. Who is bleeding this country out of those services when 70% of the poor in this country are white or black?

    BTW..Your link isn't working.
