Well it doesn't over a short period of time and can't be observed in our life time like tanning can but does that mean it didn't happen? If so did
white people always have white skin? Or did their skin become lighter so it was better suited to the environment over generations. This article
explains why this may be the case, but if you disagree i would like to hear your reasoning behind why people have different skin colors.
That article is junk and garbage. Here's why!
Same subject was talked about years ago. Why do black Americans suffer from heart disease more than white Americans? Guess what! Look at "blacks"
in other countries - Asia, India, Middle East, Africa, Jamaica, even in other European countries - guess what? They don't die as much as black
Americans do from heart disease.
Black Americans suffer from heart disease sooo much because of the insane stress they're under. The majority of them live in horrible enviorments.
(More black Americans are in jail than college!). More black Americans live in the hell hole "projects" than white Americans. It's about politics,
and society, and lifestyle, and enviorment, NOT about biology.
A person with dark skin pigmentation may need 20 to 30 times as much exposure to ultraviolet radiation as a white-skinned person in order to
generate the same quantities of vitamin D in their bodies. It is the skin organ, after all, that produces this critical nutrient for your
That ill researched article FAILS to mention that the majority of black Americans also eat a poor diet. Fast food, processed food. Even the "home
cooked food" is bad - outdated food slaves were forced to eat, like chitlins (pig intestine), pig feet, and other glop.
and yet virtually all Americans are chronically deficient in vitamin D.
Here the article blows its ownself up. It defeates its ownself! It goes from saying black Americans are deficient in vitamin D, to saying ALL
Americans are deficiant!
As a result of all of this, black Americans suffer from skyrocketing rates of the diseases related to chronic vitamin D deficiency
The title of the article claims black Americans suffer from many diseases. And are in need of many medicines to combat their suffering. The article
is about ONE issue - vitamin D deficiency! There are no "many diseases" black Americans are suffering from based only on their darker skin.
1. All Black Americans need to do is eat a proper diet. Fish, beans, Milk. Or go with Soy Milk (it's BETTER than cow milk.) Goat Milk is next best.
There's also Rice Milk. And milk products - cheese, on and on. Eat a proper diet! Reason junk food is called "junk food". It's junk! It's
NOTICE how the majority of organic food stores, are in good neighbourhoods? "White" neighbourhoods? More choices for the health concious "whites"
to choose from to eat.
2. Exercise. It's what makes a healthy heart. Not taking medicines (all have at least 1 side effect.) Get into running. First walk 1 block. Build
up. Until can walk 1-4 miles. Then run 1 block. Build up until can run 1-4 miles.
3. Get out of stressful hellhole enviorments. Stay out of prison. Don't get trapped and stuck in the projects. Or if already in, get out and stay
outta there! Go after education, in school, study at libary. Never lose sight of the goal!
