New study reveals previously invisible health issues among Asians in the U.S.

Through collective data, it has been interpreted that Asians tend to be healthier relative to the other races in the United States. However, a new study disproves this belief by categorizing the data into specific ethnicities among the Asians. The California Health Interview Survey helped researchers analyze data in the study, “Health Conditions, Outcomes, and Service Access Among Filipino, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans in California, 2011-2017.” The results showed that Japanese people had a higher rate of obese or overweight individuals than non-Hispanic whites and Asians overall. Filipinos are seen to have the worst health including high blood pressure, asthma, and heart conditions out of all the Asian groups. This shows the value of breaking down the data and bringing to light the individual health problems within Asian society.
