You Need To Take Your Black Ass Outside & Get Some Sun
It is undisputed that the vast majority of people in industrialized countries are chronically Vitamin D deficient. Not many people are aware that black Americans are among the most Vitamin D deficient people in the world.
Why are dark skinned people more likely to be chronically deficient in Vitamin D? Because:
1) Increased melanin in the skin of darker people tends to impede the absorption of sunlight and Vitamin D synthesis, and
2) Black Americans stay inside more than other people and simply do not get enough sunlight.
What are the consequences of Vitamin D deficiency?
The consequences are many and tragic. When you take a population like black and Hispanic Americans, who are prone to Vitamin D deficiency, and pump them full of substances that attack the immune system like vaccines and dairy products, it shouldn't be a big surprise to start seeing an epidemic of autoimmune disorders like cancer and diabetes.
Sunlight is as essential to your health as is protein. Diabetes stalks all of our families. Make an effort to spend more time in the sun as if your life depends on it.
