Well it took all of 2 minutes for a thread about blacks and heart disease to turn into a thread about whites. You blacks are so clueless!

You blacks should exercise more and quit eating at McDonalds for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

80% of black women are grossly obese. Black males have such a poor diets that they are actually shrinking over the last few generations.

Black males today are 1/3 the size of a black female. No wonder black females run the black community and black males are kicked out of the house.

Scary!

Stop pigging out at Popeye's and at the local BBQ place. Man, every time I'm in our local excellent BBQ place, there has been these giant sized Black men and women get untrimmed brisket, sausages, and ribs. LOTS of it, enough that they are getting around 60 grams of fat at least and half of that saturated. You Black folks are getting heart disease, you are forcing yourself into it.

the medical associations have admitted that corn oil and margerine contribute to heart disease. Stop using these oils. Also, we need to walk more: at least 30 min a day. This should decrease heart disease among us.

Once again the melanin-enriched kangs and kweens are "disproportionately" afflicted by a behavior related disease.

Nighurs are a failure. Nature is correcting a massive evolutionary error. This is the way things work out. There is no cause for alarm, let alone pity.

"worst off"
"then"

Ignorance is certainly not helping this situation. Did you even read the article? Do you have any knowledge of this topic at all or are you just embracing your inner racism and trying to change the subject.

White Americans are not "worst" off "then" Americans.

Heart Disease Data/Statistics

Heart disease is the leading killer across most racial and ethnic minority communities in the United States, accounting for 24 percent of all deaths in 2010.

African American men and women are 30 percent more likely to die from heart disease than non-Hispanic Whites. Some 34 percent of African Americans have hypertension compared to 24 percent of whites, in 2011.

It's not that simple, my proud & sexy Yank IViggress boirrakaambiinga sis, y'all Yanks literally eat refab'd, processed & 'purified' GMO crap. ;-) In Canada the situation is basically the same, if not worse. ;-)

Have you ever seen a black person shopping for groceries? They head straight to the meat department and then straight to the bakery. That's all they buy. You never see a black in the produce section.

How to have a heart attack:

(1) Eat lots of fried foods, sugar, and flour.

(2) Avoid fresh fruits and vegetables.

(3) Smoke, drink, maybe do some dangerous drugs.

(4) Work hard to develop a gigantic fat ass instead of a healthy toned body.

I'd only cook with 100% ORGANIC virgin coconut oil, if anything.

I'm leaning more toward not cooking much and trying to eat raw now. I eat raw (organic) chicken eggs every day; so far, nothing wrong with me. I eat wild caught salmon every day, as well, though I lightly heat it up in the oven, though keep it pink in color. With some shaved (organic) garlic, pink himalayan salt, and (organic) pepper, also with organic baby spinach, either whole or ill blend it with water and drink it down like a smoothie.

Also, it's good to do a little workout before you eat, even just 20 seconds to one minute. I do fast squats in place most of the time, especially before I eat. Do squats (very easy, no equipment or big room needed) every 5-10 minutes or every 15 minutes throughout the day. This will help fight the sedentary lifestyle most people are getting used to and is helping to kill them.

People need to either grow their own foods in their backyards (and test the soil for pollutants), or at least buy organic items (not totally the best, but better than non-organic).

Stop eating that poison these big companies sell to you. They're in together with the pharmaceutical and "medical" industry to make money off of your sickness and death.

We're all in the same boat. Americans are fat followed up by the UK. Science is great, but having said that, they'll have all us afraid to breathe. One minute red wine is good for you, next it's not. Eggs are bad for you, but then they're good. Some of the healthiest eaters and fittest people keel over everyday from heart failure.

hahaha,

"healthiest eaters" depends upon ones definition of "healthiest" though. So many people have different definitions if "good health," that it can really not even be trusted or relied upon when one speaks it.

I just keep it simple: What would we do out in the wild?

We'd get plenty of sun, though we'd probably not sunbathe like you see many doing at the beach, unless they are working as a fisherman, then they'd have the essential nutrients to put up with the strong sun every day, on top of gradually building that "tan" (melanin) to help from overexposure to the strong sun. Many running around the woods would still get enough sun peaking through the trees in order to get their vitamin D (and whatever else the sun helps us generate).

We'd eat raw food, though it'd be FRESH killed animals, not packaged and handled in dirty warehouses and then coming in contact with so many other chemicals and toxins, so I'd advise on not eating raw meat from the grocery store today, especially NON-organic meat. I eat organic eggs raw because eggs are sealed inside. I've heard the risks even then, but I'm willing to take my chances. I think cooking food kills nutrients and who knows what else it does on a microscopic level?

"Science" is great, yes, but as you just also said that it bounces from one interpretation and opinion to another. Many "scientists" can manipulate interpretations and opinions, so they really SHOULD NOT be totally trusted. We cannot be followers any longer. It's time we grew up and became adults; be leaders for our own individual health. "Scientists" want us to depend on them like little needy children. I refuse to do that. If what they say backs up what my logic already tells me, then good on them. Otherwise, I ignore them.

We'd be outside in the fresh, NON-polluted air all day, every day! Not sitting in offices, clubs, restaurants, houses, etc., that have a high concentration of chemicals they use to contaminate, er, sorry: "clean" (lol) the place with.

And about fish as I brought up above, so many people think it's disgusting to eat the eyes, or the vital organs (of any animal), but many do not know that these parts hold a lot of good nutrients and vitamins that the "meat" flesh does not have.

All of this, on top of the poisonous, abominable pharmaceutical drugs they give to multi-millions of people every year, it's just one big 'stew' of crap.

So many people don't realize it but, these corporations are LITERALLY a cancer to humans, animals, all living beings and this Earth. It's hard to think that way because so many people are brainwashed to believe that cancer is only microscopic and seen under a microscope. Not in my book!

I have read that a gene mutation may also explain why blacks suffer from heart disease at such a high rate.
