Demographically, Mississippi is already at a disadvantage.

A black man in Mississippi has a shorter
life expectancy than the average American did in 1959. Mississippi
state has a high obesity rate of 35%, one of the highest poverty rates anywhere
in the country. It also has only one abortion clinic.

Mississippi’s Healthcare and in other Southern
states is unlikely to become more equitable anytime soon. Study authors note,
16 of the states in the bottom half of the ranking have opted
not to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act to adults making up to 138
percent of the federal poverty level.


The parasite leaves the snail and enters the water
where it can survive for about 48 hours. Schist
soma parasites can penetrate the skin of persons who are wading, swimming,
bathing, or washing in contaminated water. Within several weeks, parasite
mature into adult worms, residing in the blood vessels in the body where the eggs
are produced by the female. Some of the eggs travel to the bladder or intestine
and are passed into the urine or stool.
