Health Risk Behaviors Among Students

New study from the CDC shows that Latino teens are more likely to attempt suicide, use drugs, and have sex without condoms. That’s just crazy!

Doctors still don’t understand the phenomenon and have no clues as to the factors that are driving Hispanic teens into this risky behavior. I have one word: Catholicism.


  1. What really jumps out, though, is that contrary to stereotypes, black kids have the lowest rates across the board.
