Jewish Immigrants and Tuberculosis in 20th Century Paper

Question Description

Help me study for my Health & Medical class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Despite widespread beliefs in the early 20th century that tuberculosis was a “Jewish disease,” Dr. Maurice Fishberg argued that eastern European Jewish immigrants were in general healthier than other groups.

What were some of the patterns of morbidity and mortality that were suggested by the epidemiological evidence? Did they support Dr. Fishberg’s arguments or the popular beliefs of the time? Be sure to cite statistical data from the reading (such as epidemiological rates) to support your statements.

I'm also going to send you to students answers to respond to or comment on.
