Class & Racism (Not Race) Harms Our Health

I found this amazingly interesting. It’s a radio interview on NPR’s Tell Me More. A new documentary series Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick asks why minorities suffer disproportionately from many health problems. The film’s producers discuss new research that suggests the mental stress of racism and poverty can take a direct toll on physical health.

The 7-part documentary will generally air Thursday nights. Check local listings for exact times.
