Why Black Women Are The New Face Of The Weight Loss Industry

There are 32 comments on the WTLC-AM Indianapolis story from Jan 3, 2012, titled Why Black Women Are The New Face Of The Weight Loss Industry. In it, WTLC-AM Indianapolis reports that:

Black women and weight loss is something of a literary two-headed monster, but with Jennifer Hudson , Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey promoting weight loss products between football games and prime-time television sitcoms, the subject is not only becoming less contentious, but it is also reviving black actresses' careers, The Daily Beast reports.

African-Americans and Stroke: The Risk Factors

High blood pressure, diabetes and obesity are two of the biggest risk factors for stroke, and the number of African-Americans with these medical conditions is huge. "Some of the risk factors are more frequent in African-Americans than in white Americans,” says Dr. Sacco. Some of the following risk factors are inherited, others are lifestyle-related and easier to change.

High blood pressure. This is risk factor number one for stroke, and up to 50 percent of African-Americans have the condition.“High blood pressure is more prevalent in African-Americans and not well controlled, particularly where access to care is not great," says Sacco.

Obesity. Nearly 68 percent of African-American men are overweight or obese, and that number jumps to just over 74 percent for women.
Diabetes. African-Americans are also more likely to have diabetes than Caucasians as well as die from its causes.

Tobacco use. Almost 28 percent of African-American men use tobacco, one risk factor that can be reduced or eliminated by stopping the use of tobacco products or never starting in the first place.
Sickle cell anemia. The blood disease sickle cell anemia is a condition that primarily affects African-Americans. A stroke can occur if sickle- or abnormally-shaped blood cells create a blockage in a blood vessel.

This is a company tactic to make more money to get bp to buy more of whatever their selling they know people want to see someone like themselves to relate to that's why they have surveys on what race is buying what ww have the highest rate of eating disoders not.only in this country ww are always behind anything to do with weight loss bw don't make their entire life on trying to look like a stick most bw do not want to be a stick so all i see this is as a industry move to get black people to buy more from them so the company makes more money its nothing more nothing less the company only cares about the over 5 bill their making a year stop reading so much into a nothing story

Janet looks and sounds so much like her MJ that its kind of scary. But for the most part this isn't a bad thing. Bw obesity rate is high, so why not put influential bw that most bw love to listen to (idk about mariah though) in their adds to increase sales and lower obesity ? I don't see anything wrong with that. I'm not obese but I've started to go to the gym early in the mornings now instead of just running and doing yoga. I don't need to lose weight though plus if I did I'd lose my lovely tits.

MACEO likes calling IR Black women racist when he only selects low rate White women to date/marry!

I'm concerned about MACEO racist, double standards and hypocrisy! He's the Black man thats making young Black women run to White males with his nasty attitude and racist ways!!
