Study: Native youth believe they will die young
Nearly three in 10 Native youth believe they will die young, according to a study being published in the July issue of Pediatrics.

The rate was the highest among other youth in the study. One in four African-Americans and one in 10 Whites expected to die young, according to researchers at the University of Minnesota.

Youth who expect to die young engage in more risky behaviors, the study said.
