The South, Latinos Have Highest Liver Disease Death Rates
« on: September 19, 2018, 10:55:18 am »
Southern states and areas with a higher Latino population and lower average household income have higher rates of liver-diseaseĀ­-related mortality, Healio reports.

Publishing their findings in the American Journal of Medicine, researchers compared liver disease death rates in all U.S. states according to the 2010 National Vital Statistics Report. They derived population specifics from the 2010 U.S. Census and alcohol consumption and obesity data from the 2010 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey.
