The article states that Latino and black children were at a higher risk than white children for diabetes, heart problems, alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking. Gorman reports that a parent’s education and income along with the schools that a child attends, can all contribute to the child’s behavior. This article leaves the reader with the notion that three main factors can contribute to these findings but provides no concrete evidence to differentiate between the correlations of health disparities versus family income, education or a child’s school. Perhaps if Gorman provided statistical data from the study, the reader would have a better understanding on the extent to which these three factors contribute to the different health problems. Presenting data from the study could have also explained to the reader which particular risk factor (family income, education or school) impacts a child’s behavior the most.
