Triangulation of evidence on immigration and rates of alcohol use disorder in Sweden: Evidence of acculturation effects.

Objectives: This research sought to determine the robustness of the effect of immigration on alcohol use disorder risk using various measures, styles, and immigrant regional cohorts. We investigated the risk of AUD from seven geographical regions: Africa, Asia and Oceania, Eastern Europe, Finland, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East/North Africa, and Western countries, using Cox regression models. By comparing first generation immigrants and their children with none and one native Swedish parent, and the ii examining age at immigration, we found increased exposure to Swedish culture, which we interpreted as increasing acculturation. We investigated the risk ofAUD in first-generation sibling pairs discordant for their age at immigration. Conclusions As reported by both our variables, almost all immigrant cohorts in Sweden had increased degrees of acculturation, with elevated rates of AUD that were similar to those of Sweden's Swedish people.

Factors associated with dietary acculturation among international students at the University of Georgia.

This report sought to determine the reasons that could be responsible for shifts in food intake habits among international students at a large public university in the southern United States. Since fewer whole foods and more processed foods were consumed in the United States, the majority of participants were dietary acculturated, with affordability and accessibility determining types of food intake. Conclusions The results indicate that dietary acculturation may be influenced by economic factors, making the switch to Westernized food items a convenient and cost-effective option among international students.

Acculturation and Dental Care-Related Anxiety: An Exploratory Assessment from the Hispanic Community Health Study / Study of Latinos.

This report was designed to establish the links between acculturation, dental fear, and dental use among Hispanics/Latinos living in the United States. A direct measure of dental anxiety was provided to 7539 adults who had not seen a dentist within the last year. Dental anxiety was strongly connected to the SASH language scale score, years in the United States, and the use of Spanish words; lower acculturation related to higher dental anxiety.

Association of Acculturation and Cardiometabolic Disease Incidence Among Immigrants of South Asian Ancestry in a National Biobank

Background Individuals of South Asian descent are at a higher risk of cardiometabolic disease than those from other cultures, and an investigation into the effect of acculturation on this risk warrants further investigation. Methods In the UK Biobank prospective cohort, we investigated individuals of South Asian and European ancestry without baseline cardiometabolic disease in the first cohort. Born in the United Kingdom, lived in the United Kingdom, in the United Kingdom; born in the United Kingdom; born in the United Kingdom; born in the United Kingdom; in the United Kingdom > 5yrs; and born abroad; in the United Kingdom u22645yrs, time lived in the United Kingdom divided into three acculturation groups based on time lived in Britain: born in the United Kingdom; born in the United Kingdom; born in the United Kingdom; born in the South Asians — in the United Kingdom; born in et; born in the UK; born in the UK; born in the UK; born in the UK; in the UK; in UK > 5yrs; in the UK; and born in the United Kingdom yrs e : Results over a median follow-up of 12 years, people of South Asian ancestry, regardless of the acculturation group, were at a greater risk of cardiometabolic disease in comparison to European ancestry individuals. After adjusting for age and sex, the HR for CAD was 1. 76 for UK-born South Asians; 2. 07 for South Asians born abroad; and 2. 03 for South Asians born abroad in the United Kingdom 22645 years ago.

Teachers' acculturation in culturally diverse schools - How is the perceived diversity climate linked to intercultural self-efficacy?

While the current research, acculturation is often discussed in connection with students of immigrant descent, the current research uses an acculturation framework to teach teachers predominantly representing the mainstream culture. In particular, we investigated whether teachers' acculturation attitudes toward their students mediate effects of the perceived cultural diversity environment at school on teachers' intercultural self-efficacy in culturally diverse classrooms. Moreover, teachers' support for cultural care amongst their students was linked to intercultural self-efficacy, in addition, but no mediator was found between climate and intercultural self-efficacy through acculturation attitudes.

International medical students' acculturation and self-rated health status in Hungary: a cross-sectional study.

This report looked at the connection between acculturation and self-rated health among international medical students. To determine the acculturation status, the modified Stephenson multigroup acculturation scale was used; the scale measured acculturation as the degree of dominant society involvement and ethnic group immersion; rather, the degree of widespread socio-immersion and ethnic group immersion; When the ESI was higher, students' chances of poor general health decreased, and if students had a higher DSI, a risk of poor mental stability deteriorated, according to a broader acculturation. If the student could integrate better into their own ethnic group, their general wellbeing was better, and if they could fully integrate into the Hungarian culture, their mental stability was more stable. Acculturation programs should be promoted by academics and public health professionals in order to better understand their role in medical international student's behavior, health care, and health care use.
