- Asian Americans have been referred to as the "model minority" for their quality of education and economic success, but little known is the fact that they also stand out in terms of public health. Asian Americans have the longest life expectancy rate of any group, as well as the lowest infant mortality rate, the lowest alcohol abuse and smoking rates, and they have made their traditional medicines increasingly popular with the larger United States population.
