Yet there are a couple of things that help. BP don't make as much vitamin D as WP, and yes, it is because of skin color. The genes are racist. ;-) In some people, a vitamin D deficiency causes high blood pressure itself, or contributes to other related conditions such as obesity.

Then there is the weight thing. Quite a few claim their weight is because of their race, and that is only part of it. The places where fat accumulate do vary with race. Some of the metabolism differences are genetic, since people in areas of famine adapted by developing genes related to being able to hold body weight. But there is more to it than that. There are 3 changes many can make to help reduce body weight. My former neighbor switched to baking as an alternative to frying on the advice of a doctor. She soon dropped several sizes.

For other people, MSG and NutraSweet interfere with the body's metabolism. There was one man who did about everything he thought he could to lose weight, and it didn't help. He exercised, controlled portions, took supplements, etc., but he couldn't get it off. Finally, his doctor asked what he was eating. It was very healthy overall, except two things stood out. He liked eating a lot of Chinese, and he drank a lot of "diet" sodas. The doctor asked him to try to avoid those for a while and see what happened. So he switched to MSG-free Chinese food and eliminated the diet sodas, and he started losing weight.

I am White and find that comment offensive. And in your country, so many WP are not giving genes at all, but carrying rainbow flags if you get my drift. It is almost the same here for that matter.

Feel free to be offended. And I am using a proxy; I actually reside just outside of Reno. There are not too many rainbow flag waivers in these here parts, if ya get my meaning.

you have it wrong devil klaus,, your the one with recessive genes, vitamin d is produced naturally when you stand in the sun, but your cells lack melenocytes, due to a mutation which causes you not to produce color like the other HUE=color=mans the original man , HUMAN, the word hue means color, you need to think over klaus the devil told you, "youre superior" but the creator said "i have no favorites" acts 10:34-35 / job 33:6 the devil told you whites are better, the creater says "that god made all nations out of one blood. Acts 17:26, the devil says klaus white skin is like mine, but the creator says " there is one kind of flesh of man" 1Corinthians 15:39. No wonder this happened to you 2 kings 5:27.......
