lose weight Understanding Cultural Influences on African American Women Important in Helping Achieve Long Term Weight Loss

African-American women can lose weight and keep it off
Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in America, and the problem is particularly serious among African-American women. Federal statistics indicate that four in five African-American women are overweight or obese. Researchers from Rice and BCM surveyed African-American women who lost clinically significant amounts of weight — at least 10 percent of their starting weight — to understand what made them successful at maintaining the loss or, in some cases, what made them regain weight.

Sarcoidosis22 The Largest Epidemiologic Study to Date that Specifically Addresses the Mortality of Black Females with Sarcoidosis

Exposing Sarcoidosis Among Black Women
Sarcoidosis causes inflammation in the lungs, lymph nodes, liver, skin and other tissues and stems from unknown causes. Patients affected are typically between the ages of 20 and 40 years old and are more likely to be affected if a close blood relative has the disease. It is most often associated with debilitating lung illness like pulmonary fibrosis. Although it can affect any age and race, black women tend to have a higher incidence of sarcoidosis, as well as a more severe course and higher mortality rates.

sarcoidosis2 Study Sheds Light on Sarcoidosis and Pulmonary Disease as a Premature Cause of Death Among Black WomenStudy Reveals Sarcoidosis-Related Mortality Rates Among Black Women
A new study conducted by researchers from Boston University has found that sarcoidosis accounts for 25 percent of all deaths among women in the Black Women’s Health Study who have the disease. The study is the largest epidemiologic study to date to specifically address mortality in black females with sarcoidosis. There are many speculations as to why, but as you know Sarcoidosis does mimic so many other diseases, and some doctors are still clueless to the symptoms.

In the interview, Monroe talks about health benefits of breastfeeding, notes the lower breastfeeding rates among black women, and encourages black women to breastfeed for a year or longer.

vitamin d receptor Genetic Variants in Vitamin D Pathway May Be Related to Higher Prevalence of ER Negative Breast Cancer in African American Women

Vitamin D Influences Racial Differences in Breast Cancer Risk
Genetic variations in the vitamin D receptor and CYP24A1, an enzyme responsible for deactivating vitamin D, are associated with an increase in breast cancer risk for African American women. When researchers compared levels of vitamin D in the blood of women without breast cancer, they found that severe vitamin D deficiency in African-American women was almost six times more common than in European-American women.
