La Opinin, Posted: Jul 02, 2009

CHARLOTTE -- Latino teenagers who maintain their own culture and whose parents are more involved in American society are less likely to consume alcohol, drugs and drop our of school, according to a University of North Carolina (UNC) study, reports La Opinin. According to the news report, previous studies of young Latino immigrants found that they faced health and social obstacles as they assimilated. But according to Paul Smokowski, lead researcher and professor at UNC-Chapel Hill, the more bicultural a young immigrant is, the better chance there is of avoiding these risk factors."
