In Reply We thank Dr Benavides and Mr Gallo for their response to our article1; we concur with the points brought forward and believe their recommendations are essential for future studies. Race and ethnicity are 2 separate identifiers and prone to misuse. We were aware of this issue in constructing our study and elected to compare our 2 cohorts equivalently—white/Caucasian (race) and Hispanic/Latino (ethnicity)—owing in part to the self-identification patterns of our participants and the country in which we conducted our study.1
