Diabetes, Dialysis and Dirty Water in Central Valley
Obesity and diabetes rank as the top health troubles affecting Latinos in this country. Three out of four Latino adults are overweight, and the rate of diabetes is almost twice the rate of non-Hispanic whites. These two health problems are difficult to overcome in any community, but it’s especially tough in California’s Central Valley, where they lack one basic necessity—clean water. And it’s hard to stay on a healthy path when bottled water is more expensive than soda.
