Chronic vitamin D deficiency is a silent epidemic that is taking the lives of countless blacks worldwide. Correcting The Vitamin D Deficiency Epidemic: Strategies to Fight Disease and Prolong Life for Black People is the first book to comprehensively address this crucial yet grossly under-examined health issue among dark-skinned people. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with a wide range of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, mental illness, asthma, and arthritis to name a few.
Most people are deficient in vitamin D but blacks are critically deficient. In the United States alone, blacks suffer disproportionate incidence and mortality rates from major degenerative diseases that have been linked to vitamin D deficiency. Studies have found that more than 90 percent of blacks are critically deficient in vitamin D. Correcting The Vitamin D Deficiency Epidemic: Strategies to Fight Disease and Prolong Life for Black People provides practical steps that dark-skinned people worldwide can take to improve their vitamin D status as well as useful, natural strategies to help prevent and fight chronic diseases.
