Mental and Physical Quality of Life

This PDF shows the mental and physical quality of life for Adventist Health Study-2 participants, compared to national statistics. It is noteworthy that the mental and physical quality of life of the Black/African American participants is often at or above the U.S. norm, despite the fact that health disparities between the Black community and the rest of the nation are well-documented in medical journals. Researchers attribute this difference to the healthier lifestyle habits of Black Adventists compared to Black non-Adventists. (See the press release for these findings.)
