Native Americans and Healthcare
I think they have some of the worst health indicators because for starters they aren’t treated the same way. They aren’t getting the proper medications they need to solve their medical issues and some medical issues are hereditary. So, in other words, their ancestors weren’t treated for their diagnoses or were not treated properly and that can be passed down through lineage. And secondly, they do not have access to quality healthcare and hospitals. They don’t have guidance on lifestyle and dietary adjustments that they need to make.
