This is something which I would never have suspected, perhaps the fault lying entirely with me, with my age, my race, and my limited perspective on a changing and dynamic gender fluid world: https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-04-19-study-being-lesbian-gay-or-bisexual-makes-you-36-less-likely-to-be-healthy.html
“The findings of a new study on human health are sure to ruffle some feathers in the LGBT community, as they show that homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgenders are much more prone than straight people to develop health problems. A team of researchers from the Baptist Health South Florida Clinic in Miami looked at seven different areas of controllable heart health to look for any differences that might exist between LGBT and non-LGBT people. What they learned is that those who identify as LGBT simply aren’t keeping up in terms of overall health and quality of life. Presented at a recent meeting of the American Heart Association (AHA), the paper showed that many LGBT people tend towards having higher stress, which drives many of them to engage in alcohol abuse.
