    The Hispanic paradox is that Latinos have health outcomes better than expected from their low incomes. To find out whether the rate of Type 2 diabetes follows in that pattern, I suggest making a small scatter plot with the data from Table 1 on the vertical axis, the average income of each race on the horizontal axis, and see if Latinos are above or below the best-fit line. The best-fit line will have a negative slope. If Latinos are on the line or above the line, then the hypothesis loses points. If Latinos are below the line, then the hypothesis gains points.

    I do get what you are saying - but the point that I was trying to make is that eating cheap canned meat, canned vegetables, beans, and rice is healthier and more calorie conscious (and more weight conscious) than eating fast food or overprocessed junk food on a daily basis.

    Don't get me wrong - canned food is obviously processed, and it is usually more salted than the fresh versions. I don't want it to come across like I am arguing that eating that kind of food is the peak of nutrition. It isn't. But I do believe that most people in America DO have access to cheap canned food at least part of the time, and while it isn't the epitome of health, it is a healthier alternative to fast food and junk snacks.
