With all due care required when handling any topic that refers in any way to race or color, please someone gently educate me on the relationship between race and longevity. I have been led to understand Asian lives longest, Anglo only slightly behind and both way ahead of nonasian, nonwhite. Further, if last week's Newsweek is to be believed, there is evidently a significant difference, even after socioeconomic factors are normalized out. What do you think? Sound true? spike
