Nutritional assessments in this country are set at white standards, which are NOT APPROPRIATE for black people. "This is an important issue because the recommended calcium intake for both blacks and whites in the United States is exclusively to a white skeletal endpoint"

black ppl have better calcium absorption and retention, higher levels of vitamin d3, a larger mineral mass, a larger skelatal mass and higher bone density, and a lesser rate of adult bone loss in black females.

the standards for north american whites are not appropriate for blacks.And does more harm than good.

for over 70 yrs its been a known fact that black babies are developmentally advanced over whites, some blk children who may be at nutriotional risk will appear satisfactory or normal if white developmental standards are applied.

also the normal value for measurement of hemoglobin (red blood cells) are not the same for whites and blacks

Also, developmental milestones of children are set to white Americans development and should not apply to blk children.

Afrikan children are naturally precocious and gifted. They begin life with a 'natural head start.'

However, their natural genius it too frequently underdeveloped and misdirected by
(1) the fact that the racist and imperialist status quo politically mandates their intellectual under-achievement and social mal-adaptiveness;
(2) belief in the myth that intelligence is fixed at birth and that Afrikans are innately less intelligent than Europeans;
(3) a lack of knowledge of their positively unique developmental psychology;
(4) a lack of confidence in their ability to equal or surpass the intellectual performance of any other ethnic group; and
(5) the general lack of infant and early childhood educational experiences which stimulate, sustain and actualize their abundant human potential.

Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children by Dr. Amos Wilson, provides effective means by which these political and social maladies may be fully remedies.

Intelligence is not fixed at birth. The quality of children’s educational experiences during infancy and early childhood are substantially related to their measured intelligence, academic achievement and prosocial behavior.

What you forget is most AAs have various degrees of White admixture. So you your one diet fits all Blacks concept is not even logical.

"In black patients, lower levels of vitamin D may not signify deficiency to the same extent as in whites," said the study's lead investigator,

Vitamin D is widely used to treat patients with osteoporosis and/or low vitamin D levels based on a medically accepted normal range. This "normal" range is typically applied to all race groups, although it was established predominantly in whites.

We found that higher circulating levels of vitamin D in blacks were associated with more calcium in the artery walls," Freedman said.

"This is the opposite effect of what is felt to occur in white patients and shows that the accepted "normal" range of vitamin D may be different between blacks and whites.

physicians should use caution in supplementing vitamin D levels in blacks -- especially if they do not have weak bones or other reasons to take this vitamin -- until the effects of supplementing vitamin D on blood vessels and heart disease are better understood.

The bottom line is that racial differences in calcium handling are seen and black and white patients have differing risk for bone and heart disease.

We should more clearly determine the effects of supplementing vitamin D in black patients with low levels based on existing criteria and should not assume that the effects of supplementation will be the same between the races."

a study done in 1960's showed blks had much less heart disease than whites

there are earlier reports that African Americans had significantly less CVD (cardiovascular disease) than whites A long term study of diversity between two ethnic groups was developed in Evans County, Georgia. coronary heart disease prevalence and incidence rates were extremely low for blacks in Africa and four times lower than whites in rural South Georgia in the 1960s.

This articles reviews the findings of the Evans County Study and explores various hypotheses for why CVD in African Americans has evolved from a disease from which African Americans may have been protected to one in which they shoulder a disproportionate burden.

In 1960, the original Evans County Study cohort was formed when 92 percent of all residents, Black and white, aged 40-74 years and a 50 percent sample of residents aged 15-39 years were given a complete physical examination and a variety of laboratory tests.

The major purpose of the original study was to determine factors associated with coronary and related cardiovascular diseases and to explain the low frequency of coronary heart disease in Blacks

Notice white and blk kids at the same age. Preferably boys. Look at a 12 yr old white boy and a 12yr old blk boy.

White boys all scrawny blk boys be cut up lol already, it's just natural. Too bad most of them are raised in bad situations, they could grow to be powerful men. Mentally and physically

<quoted text>You dumb fat ugly mammy-sow,'normal range' in a country that is PREDOMINANTLY 72.4% WHITE is obviously going to be biased towards White folks, how f ucking dumb are you?

It's funny hearing Negroes bytch about not enough calcium when there are thousands of posts on Topix with Negroes saying that blacks shouldn't drink cow's milk because they weren't evolved to drink it, and milk is pretty much at the top when it comes to calcium.

Maybe if Negroes didn't think they were special and drank milk from their mammy-sows teat instead of 20/20 and malt, then you may not have as many issues.

No diet is effective for all people, even 'race' specific ones, we all have different metabolisms, my brother can eat food so spicy that to me it is like passing magma throw my bowels. Yet, I can eat any seafood I like without being sick, unlike him with shellfish. Studies show that two identical twins can be fed exactly the same diet, at exactly the same times of day, and will still have different toilet functionality and different weight gain/loss issues.

Dietary studies are a guideline that is all, they can't put the whole of the US into a laboratory, and even if they did, there couldn't be a single diet that suits everyone. Maybe some wealthy Negro can undertake a study to see how to improve you melanin clowns' nutrition.

Here's the thing, mammy-sow, back in the 'muddalan' your ancestor's diet consisted of very low calcium intake, unless you call chewing the bones of antelopes and pygmies a calcium rich diet, and nutritionally much of the food is poor, indeed African nutrition only really improved when White folks started showing you Negroes how to grow more nutritious crops.

Anyway, she-rilla, diet advice is not really the issue, how many people do you know that stand by any official dietary advice? How many people eat burgers, fried chicken and other junk food, when the advice is less meat, less processed food and more fresh fruit and vegetables?

You're raking up a story that is, to all events and purposes, pointless.

Tell me, mammy-sow, did you accurately follow such nutritional guidelines when you brought your evil brood into the world?

Be honest, if an official body said that you Negroes have to drink a pint of milk a day and only eat fruit and vegetables every day and meat or fish three times a week, would you stick to it?

You'd be lying if you said yes, we both know you are overweight, you've said so many times, if your overweight then you are not following nutritional guidelines and healthy lifestyle edicts.

Essentially, you are saying to Negroes: "You know that dietary advice that you don't follow? Well, don't follow it." SMDH

God you are dumb, but I guess that's because of your nutrition and not your genetics, right? lol
I stopped reading your comment at not enough calcium. That's not what I said

We don't need as much calcium as you feeble boned vampires. We have the strongest bones in the world. maybe you want to re read what I posted. And try to comprehend it
