A study from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, TX has found that last names can affect your health. The researchers looked at a list of Vietnamese surnames and mapped them to their corresponding geographical areas. They found that people with a certain surname were more likely to develop certain medical conditions than others living in the same region!

This study was published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior. Researchers looked at a list of Vietnamese surnames and mapped them to their corresponding geographical areas. They found that people with surname A were more likely to develop certain medical conditions than others living in same region!

– The first letter of your Vietnamese last name can be indicative to the level of income and education you will attain.
– Last names that start with an “N” are typically from people in lower incomes, whereas those starting with “Q” originate high class families.
– It’s not uncommon for Vietnamese children to change their surname later on in life if they want a more desirable one or believe it signifies something about them now. This is known as Van Tien Dung.
– Changing your last name doesn’t always have positive results though; some may find themselves without any social status when they do so because changing one’s last name means that generations before them also changed theirs (which apparently implies being unsuccessful).
– There is even a Vietnamese proverb that says, “A person’s last name determines his future.”
– If you have the surname Nguyen or Le in Vietnam, it often means your family has an intellectual lifestyle and typically comes from lower class backgrounds.
– Other names such as Tran can signify high status because they originate from those who are successful business owners. The same goes for Hoang which was derived from people with higher education levels.
– Females of some last names may feel trapped by tradition – these include Lam, Tang, Cao and Phung – all meaning limited career prospects due to traditional gender roles prescribed by society (such as cooking). For example: females with one of these three surnames will be seen as “just a wife” and will not be given the same opportunities as men.
– Quan, Quyen or Truong: If you’re female, people with these last names have traditional gender roles in society which can make it difficult to get ahead because of caregiving responsibilities for children.
– Nguyen is one of the most common surnames in Vietnam – this means that those who share this name are more likely to face challenges such as discrimination when seeking jobs due to its ubiquity. Discrimination based on race and class are prevalent against those with this surname even though these problems originate from societal issues rather than anything about an individual’s merits.
The article also includes information about how Vietnamese family members bring up their health while discussing the last name. People with the surname Tran are more prone to mental illness, and people with Nguyen are at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
– Vietnamese place an emphasis on maintaining their health to avoid having problems later in life – this means that medical care is often sought out for minor illnesses like colds or headaches because they don’t want anything serious happening down the line when it’s harder to maintain their own health due to age or issues stemming from old injuries.

Nguyen is a common Vietnamese last name, and they have one of the highest rates of cardiovascular disease amongst any other group in Vietnam. This article explains how this might be due to their increased risk for developing hypertension or diabetes from childhood on – both are problems which can lead to heart attacks later in life. The high rate of smoking among those with this surname could also explain it; while some Western cultures believe that tobacco use helps relieve stress, many Asian countries don’t see it as such an innocuous substance because nicotine addiction has been shown to cause anxiety disorders and depression. Add in the fact that these people may experience more financial hardship than others during times of recession when there’s less support for them at work, and it’s not hard to see why this group has higher rates of these health issues.
Here are just a few other interesting facts about Vietnamese last names:

The article continues with 12 points about how last names affect health which range from common sense tips like staying away from certain types of foods if your last name sounds similar to them, or even more bizarrely claiming that people who have “Li” as their surname should avoid eating duck eggs because there’s apparently something about that combination specifically which can cause cancer. (NOTE: The latter two points are not the author’s own beliefs but rather what the article claims Vietnamese traditional medicine says) – The list of last names continues to go on with various food and drink tips as well as more general health advice, such as: “Nguyen” should avoid eating beef if they want to maintain a healthy weight or that people with “Hoang” in their name can’t eat tofu because it would cause them to lose hair.
