Not sure what to believe about odds with this disease. Article also say Hispanics are less likely to be diagnosed. Read other studies that December birthdays also decrease likelihood. Well I'm hispanic, born on Christmas Eve. Would much rather beat the odds when it comes to Powerball. Ugh. Okay, I'm done whining.
