A first look at the intersection of climate change and the relatively good health of new migrants—or “healthy migrant effect”— suggests that the changing climate might propel less-healthy people to migrate from Mexico to the United States.
A new study by CU Boulder mortality researchers found that drug-related deaths among middle-aged white men have soared 25-fold since 1980. But contrary to recent reports, suicide and alcohol-related mortality has not increased substantially.
