... Hutch News. Articles Evaluating genetic associations with C-reactive protein across populations. Evaluating genetic associations with C-reactive protein across populations. In addition to environmental factors, several genetic variants have been associated with CRP levels and other inflammation-related traits. Most of these studies, however, have been performed in populations of European ancestry and have not been as well studied in other race/ethnicity groups. Jonathan Kocarnik, Ulrike Peters, and colleagues in the Public Health Sciences Division investigated whether inflammation-related genetic variants were associated with CRP levels in various race/ethnicity groups. Results showed both similarities and differences in these associations across race/ethnicity groups, and also identified a novel genetic association with CRP. To perform these analyses, the authors utilized data from 7 studies participating in the Population Architecture using Genomics and ...

From 1992 to 2001 the proportion of white children decreased from 43.1% to 35.2%, and the proportion of black children decreased from 38.3% to 34.1%, while the proportion of Hispanic children increased from 17.7% to 29.4%. In this example, the state WIC program wants to determine if the increase in the prevalence of overweight from 1992 to 2001 is because of the change in the distribution of the population especially the increase in the proportion of Hispanic children who also have the highest prevalence of obesity. Therefore, the state prevalence of obesity in 1992 will be standardized or adjusted based on the race/ethnic distribution of the state in 2001 using the following formula. Standardization Formula A × B = Standardized Rate or Adjusted Prevalence is the sum of A proportion of the characteristic in the standard population multiplied by B population characteristic specific prevalence of health indicator and equals the standardized rate or adjusted prevalence.

The Contribution of Geography to Black/White Differences in the Use of Low Neonatal Mortality Hospitals in New York City Hebert, Paul L. Background: Racial differences in the use of high-quality hospital care contribute to racial disparities in mortality for very low birth weight VLBW neonates. Objectives: We explored the role that geographic distribution of hospitals plays in the racial disparity in the use of top-tier hospitals by mothers of VLBW neonates in New York City. Subjects: VLBW deliveries in New York City from 1996 to 2001 to non-Hispanic Black n = 4947 and non-Hispanic White n = 1615 mothers. Results: Black mothers were less likely to deliver in a top-tier hospitals White = 44%, Black = 28%; P 0.001 and top-tier hospitals were less likely to be located in Black mothers' neighborhoods White = 40%, Black = 33%; P 0.001.

History of American Cream and White Horses: The history of the American White and Cream horses begins in 1908, with the birth of a white colt that would eventually come to be known as Old King. Years later, when Hudson left the partnership, Caleb and his new wife Ruth continued breeding these horses and dubbed their new breed “the American Albino Horse.” Creating something called the White Horse Troupe, the Thompsons began traveling around the United States and Canada with a group of white horses. In time, the registry was opened to all true white horses with pink skin and brown, black, hazel or blue eyes, regardless of breed or bloodlines. In the 1980s, horses with light cream coloring and pink skin, ...

Date: September 19, 2012 Source: Springer Science+Business Media Summary: Could the impact of chronic stress explain why American black girls are more likely to be overweight than white girls. However, the experience of chronic stress appears to have a greater negative effect on black girls' weight, which may explain racial disparities in obesity levels.

Community Dumping: Shuttered Emergency Rooms and Black White Death Gaps. Community Dumping: Shuttered Emergency Rooms and Black White Death Gaps.  The third reason for the black/white health care gap is disparity in the quality of health care. Because of the limited health care choices open to most blacks they are less likely to receive the same quality of care as whites  Blacks are less likely than white patients to receive mammograms and pap smears. A black patient with cancer is less likely than a white patient to receive evidence-based treatment. Second, we must implement metrics to measure, track and improve the quality of health care by race and ethnicity. Foremost, we must reform a US health system that segregates patients and communities by insurance status. While health reform legislation will provide many black uninsured working men and women access to Medicaid or low cost insurance, it could actually perpetuate the racial mortality gap as patients on Medicaid often have difficulty ...

By Stephanie Zacharek Dear White People, one of the sharpest and most audacious comedies of the year, is a reassurance that it's OK to be confused sometimes about how best to acknowledge our differences, as long as that confusion doesn't come wrapped in cruelty or thoughtlessness. Writer-director Justin Siemen has set the story on an Ivy League campus, where firebrand activist Samantha White Tessa Thompson hosts a radio show -- "Dear White People" -- where she announces, for example, that the quota of black friends a white person must have in order to avoid seeming racist has been raised to two. In fact, Dear White People is so pinpoint-focused that it never finds its larger concentration, although ...

“Nearly five black women die needlessly per day from breast cancer” because they don’t have information about the importance of breast screening and they don’t have access to high quality care. white breast cancer death rates correlates barely significantly with median city income and a measure of city racial segregation. The very robust health-status correlation predicts more health for higher status folks, and thus more race-health disparity when there is a higher race-status disparity. It seem quite plausible that the race-status disparity is higher in cities where races are segregated and incomes are low. … The study, which compared mortality rates between black and white women in the nation’s 25 largest cities, states that “nearly five black women die needlessly per day from breast cancer” because they don’t have information about the importance of breast screening and they don’t have access to high quality care.

City Latino community gets involved in racial disparity conversation The Badger Herald. City Latino community gets involved in racial disparity conversation. The Latino community in Madison continues to gain a voice in the racial disparity movement, taking further action to research its concerns in education, health and safety. Salvador Carranza, senior academic planner at the University of Wisconsin System, said the Latino Support Network of Dane County serves to engage various leaders and organizations in the Latino community by hosting a monthly forum to discuss Latino issues. Carranza also serves as president of the Latino Education Council, which works to assist students in gaining access to a college education. The barriers that many Latino students face in going to college is based on immigration status, Carranza said. “Since Walker came in, there’s been several states that have actually passed resident tuition for undocumented students,” Carranza said.

« How health care reform can address the crisis of maternal health in the US. A census that doesn’t represent many of us ». The Latino health paradox: Real or imagined. April 1, 2010 by nlirh. By Krystal Chan, Development and Communications Intern. On March 31st, Senior Research Associate Liza Fuentes and I hosted our second spring semester brown bag lunch, “The Latino Health/Epidemiological Paradox…Does it really Exist?” The Latino Paradox does not have a robust definition but refers to statistical trends in which health outcomes do not match race/ethnicity or socioeconomic status. For Latinas this means that in some cases, despite our low socioeconomic environments, our health is comparable, or even better, than that of our non-Hispanic counterparts. It has been commonly known that Latinos suffer lower incidences of cardiovascular disease and have overall. lower rates of infant and maternal mortality. However, when looking closer, we still see that Puerto Ricans have the second highest infant ...

... Tuesday, October 15, 2013. The Latino Paradox: Mental Health Appears to Not Be an Exception. By Lynda Cortés-Avellaneda, Program Manager, NAMI Multicultural Action Center. Years ago, in a college class, I learned that socioeconomic status was commonly used as a predictor of health outcomes in most countries. I remember this well because my professor chose to exemplify global cases with extreme pictures of poverty and ghastly pathologies. What my sensationalist instructor forgot back then was to address how international migration would affect the locally observed epidemiologic correlation. Today, with a growing population of Latinos in America, a paradox continues to gain statistical force based on mortality data. Upon arrival, struggling low-income Latino immigrants are generally healthier than most segments of the U.S. population. The story appears to change within years. Length of residence in the U.S., as research suggests, may be associated with health deterioration. Even though this phenomenon ...

This study will conduct a prospective longitudinal survey of Latino adolescents to assess the cultural, personal, and contextual factors associated with the development of health-compromising and health-enhancing behaviors.

August 6, 2010 Filed under Culture Posted by Matthew See Author's Bio. Source: Associated Press. A recent Associated Press-Univision poll shows that for Latino students in American schools, sometimes the English immersion can do more harm than good. While the children s English thrives under the immersion conditions of US schools, many find that their Spanish-speaking parents are unable to help them with homework, as well as communicate effectively with the school faculty on the kids behalf. The poll says just 20 percent of mainly Spanish-speaking parents say they are able to communicate extremely well with their child s school, compared with 35 percent of Hispanics who speak English fluently.

Guest Post by Christina Elizabeth Rodríguez @kikisbetes. Latinos are passionate people. We talk about racism, we talk about progression, we talk about moving forward and doing things to push our community to the next level. We saw this at LATISM11. It was clearly a motivational and inspirational two days, at least for me. As all these tech-savvy Latinos came together, you saw smiles and nods and heard, “It’s so nice to finally meet you!” Avatars came to life. The support that I felt among the men and women of LATISM was immense and completely appreciated. In these situations, I wonder where the disconnect is between Latinos and their health. I recently wrote a blog if recent is about a couple months ago about how if people were as passionate about their health as they are about prejudice or racism or stereotypes or ...

... skip to main. skip to sidebar. Wednesday, February 11, 2009. Socialistas Make Face Time. I was laughing to myself in the subway on the way to work. I saw the campaign for Dentyne with the tagline, Make Face Time. The campaign in a nutshell tells folks to log off the computer and have more interpersonal interaction. I started to wonder, is this relevant to Hispanics. Over the past 12-months, the Hispanic online population boomed. The online universe of Latinos grew 19% while the overall audience stayed relatively flat. What s more interesting is where that audience has gone. It s not Univision.com or Terra.com, two top Spanish-Language networks. Nope. Those sites actually saw decreases in audience. The winner. MySpace. Their Latino audience surged an incredible 293% over the past year. Not only that, but Latinos are going to the site daily and spending a lot of time interacting with friends. Social networking sites are popular with everyone. But for us Latinos, social networking sites are like steroids ...

(1/6687) Vitamin D status in different subgroups of British Asians.

To assess the effect of religious dietary practices and social customs on the vitamin D status of Asian immigrants, we kept records of the dietary intake and time spent out of doors of 81 Ugandan Asian men, women, and girls (9-19 years old). Sera were analysed for 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OHD3), and 28% of the subjects were found to have levels below the lower limit of normal. The (vegetarian) Hindus had the lowest dietary intakes, least time out of doors, and lowest serum 25-OHD3. The Goan (Roman Catholic) Asians, despite more pigmentation, had 25-OHD3 levels similar to those found among indigenous British people and had the most satisfactory vitamin D intakes. Among Asians, whose exposure to sunlight may be limited, dietary vitamin D becomes the major determinant of serum 25-OHD3.  (+info)

(2/6687) Reliability of information on physical activity and other chronic disease risk factors among US women aged 40 years or older.

Data on chronic disease risk behaviors and related variables, including barriers to and attitudes toward physical activity, are lacking for women of some racial/ethnic groups. A test-retest study was conducted from July 1996 through June 1997 among US women (n = 199) aged 40 years or more who were white, black, American Indian/Alaska Native, or Hispanic. The sample was selected and interviews were conducted using a modified version of the methods of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. For behavioral risk factors such as physical inactivity, smoking, and low fruit and vegetable consumption, group prevalences were generally similar between interviews 1 and 2. However, kappa values for selected physical activity variables ranged from 0.26 to 0.51 and tended to be lower for black women. Discordance was low for variables on cigarette smoking and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (kappa = 0.64-0.92). Discordance was high (kappa = 0.33) for low consumption of fruits and vegetables. Additional variables for barriers to and access to exercise ranged widely across racial/ethnic groups and in terms of measures of agreement. These methods illustrate an efficient way to sample and assess the reliability of data collected from women of racial/ethnic minority groups.  (+info)

(3/6687) Associations of anti-beta2-glycoprotein I autoantibodies with HLA class II alleles in three ethnic groups.

OBJECTIVE: To determine any HLA associations with anti-beta2-glycoprotein I (anti-beta2GPI) antibodies in a large, retrospectively studied, multiethnic group of 262 patients with primary antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), or another connective tissue disease. METHODS: Anti-beta2GPI antibodies were detected in sera using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. HLA class II alleles (DRB1, DQA1, and DQB1) were determined by DNA oligotyping. RESULTS: The HLA-DQB1*0302 (DQ8) allele, typically carried on HLA-DR4 haplotypes, was associated with anti-beta2GPI when compared with both anti-beta2GPI-negative SLE patients and ethnically matched normal controls, especially in Mexican Americans and, to a lesser extent, in whites. Similarly, when ethnic groups were combined, HLA-DQB1*0302, as well as HLA-DQB1*03 alleles overall (DQB1*0301, *0302, and *0303), were strongly correlated with anti-beta2GPI antibodies. The HLA-DR6 (DR13) haplotype DRB1*1302; DQB1*0604/5 was also significantly increased, primarily in blacks. HLA-DR7 was not significantly increased in any of these 3 ethnic groups, and HLA-DR53 (DRB4*0101) was increased in Mexican Americans only. CONCLUSION: Certain HLA class II haplotypes genetically influence the expression of antibodies to beta2GPI, an important autoimmune response in the APS, but there are variations in HLA associations among different ethnic groups.  (+info)

(4/6687) Cancer incidence in the south Asian population of England (1990-92).

Cancer incidence among English south Asians (residents in England with ethnic origins in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh) is described and compared with non-south Asian and Indian subcontinent rates. The setting for the study was areas covered by Thames, Trent, West Midlands and Yorkshire cancer registries. The study identified 356 555 cases of incident cancer (ICD9:140-208) registered between 1990 and 1992, including 3845 classified as English south Asian. The main outcome measures were age specific and directly standardized incidence rates for all cancer sites (ICD9:140-208). English south Asian incidence rates for all sites combined were significantly lower than non-south Asian rates but higher than Indian subcontinent rates. English south Asian rates were substantially higher than Indian subcontinent rates for a number of common sites including lung cancer in males, breast cancer in females and lymphoma in both sexes. English south Asian rates for childhood and early adult cancer (0-29 years) were similar or higher than non-south Asian rates. English south Asian rates were significantly higher than non-south Asian rates for Hodgkin's disease in males, cancer of the tongue, mouth, oesophagus, thyroid gland and myeloid leukaemia in females, and cancer of the hypopharynx, liver and gall bladder in both sexes. The results are consistent with a transition from the lower cancer risk of the country of ethnic origin to that of the country of residence. They suggest that detrimental changes in lifestyle and other exposures have occurred in the migrant south Asian population.  (+info)

(5/6687) Biochemical indices of osteomalacia in pregnant Asian immigrants in Britain.

Serum calcium, phosphate and alkaline phosphatase, and urinary calcium excretion were examined during the second trimester of uncomplicated normal pregnancy in Asian immigrants to Britain and in local Caucasians. The mean serum calcium was significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians, and the mean serum alkaline phosphatase was significantly higher in Asians. The geometric mean of the urinary calcium excretion was highly significantly lower in Asians than in Caucasians. The variances of the serum calcium, serum alkaline phosphatase, and urine calcium excretion did not differ significantly in the two populations. This indicates that there is a shift in values of immigrant Asians as a group compared with Caucasians. A comparison with figures obtained on normal nonpregnant persons of both suggests that the shift is not an inherent feature of the Asian population.  (+info)

(6/6687) Incidence and duration of hospitalizations among persons with AIDS: an event history approach.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze hospitalization patterns of persons with AIDS (PWAs) in a multi-state/multi-episode continuous time duration framework. DATA SOURCES: PWAs on Medicaid identified through a match between the state's AIDS Registry and Medicaid eligibility files; hospital admission and discharge dates identified through Medicaid claims. STUDY DESIGN: Using a Weibull event history framework, we model the hazard of transition between hospitalized and community spells, incorporating the competing risk of death in each of these states. Simulations are used to translate these parameters into readily interpretable estimates of length of stay, the probability that a hospitalization will end in death, and the probability that a nonhospitalized person will be hospitalized within 90 days. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In multivariate analyses, participation in a Medicaid waiver program offering case management and home care was associated with hospital stays 1.3 days shorter than for nonparticipants. African American race and Hispanic ethnicity were associated with hospital stays 1.2 days and 1.0 day longer than for non-Hispanic whites; African Americans also experienced more frequent hospital admissions. Residents of the high-HIV-prevalence area of the state had more frequent admissions and stays two days longer than those residing elsewhere in the state. Older PWAs experienced less frequent hospital admissions but longer stays, with hospitalizations of 55-year-olds lasting 8.25 days longer than those of 25-year-olds. CONCLUSIONS: Much socioeconomic and geographic variability exists both in the incidence and in the duration of hospitalization among persons with AIDS in New Jersey. Event history analysis provides a useful statistical framework for analysis of these variations, deals appropriately with data in which duration of observation varies from individual to individual, and permits the competing risk of death to be incorporated into the model. Transition models of this type have broad applicability in modeling the risk and duration of hospitalization in chronic illnesses.  (+info)

(7/6687) Low-weight neonatal survival paradox in the Czech Republic.

Analysis of vital statistics for the Czech Republic between 1986 and 1993, including 3,254 infant deaths from 350,978 first births to married and single women who conceived at ages 18-29 years, revealed a neonatal survival advantage for low-weight infants born to disadvantaged (single, less educated) women, particularly for deaths from congenital anomalies. This advantage largely disappeared after the neonatal period. The same patterns have been observed for low-weight infants born to black women in the United States. Since the Czech Republic had an ethnically homogenous population, virtually universal prenatal care, and uniform institutional conditions for delivery, Czech results must be attributed to social rather than to biologic or medical circumstances. This strengthens the contention that in the United States, the black neonatal survival paradox may be due as much to race-related social stigmatization and consequent disadvantage as to any hypothesized hereditary influences on birth-weight-specific survival.  (+info)

A selective advantage against infectious disease associated with increased heterozygosity at the human major histocompatibility complex [human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I and class II] is believed to play a major role in maintaining the extraordinary allelic diversity of these genes. Maximum HLA heterozygosity of class I loci (A, B, and C) delayed acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) onset among patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus-type 1 (HIV-1), whereas individuals who were homozygous for one or more loci progressed rapidly to AIDS and death. The HLA class I alleles B*35 and Cw*04 were consistently associated with rapid development of AIDS-defining conditions in Caucasians. The extended survival of 28 to 40 percent of HIV-1-infected Caucasian patients who avoided AIDS for ten or more years can be attributed to their being fully heterozygous at HLA class I loci, to their lacking the AIDS-associated alleles B*35 and Cw*04, or to both.  (+info)

What ethnic groups tend to have dominant genes when determining physical features of your children?


  • I have heard that asian genes tend to be dominant when there are bi-racial parents and was just wondering if there were any other ethnic groups or races that tend to have dominant genes when determining the physical features of kids of bi-racial parents?
  • I don't think it has to do with the ethnicity... But dark hair is a dominant gene, and light hair is recessive. Brown and green eyes are dominant, the others are recessive -although you see combinations of eye colors. Curly hair is dominant, straight is recessive. If a caucasian person marries a person of ethnicity, that child will have darker skin than their caucasian parent, but lighter skin than their "ethnic" parent. If a full-blooded latino with curly hair were to marry a blond haired, blue eyed girl, for example, ALL of their kids would have dark, curly hair, and brown eyes. But they would all be lighter than their dad.


Which ethnic groups experience more complications with conceiving children after 35?


  • Are there some certain ethnic groups who experience problems with conceiving and or giving birth than others? Or are most ethnic backgrounds about the same? Internet sources are most welcome. Just curious. Please DO include more groups than Caucasians and African Americans in your answer. Thanks.
  • I have read that south east asian women have more trouble out of their twenties and that poor nutrition in early life and obesity are the main causes of complication in later life.


How many ethnics groups carry the gene for red hair?


  • I think it started in one main group, but now it has spread to several more ethnic groups. I think that it is a recessive trait and that to have the red headed individual born, both parents would have to contribute the gene for red hair.
  • The Celts probably have the greatest frequency of the gene, but it is also present in North Germanic populations to a lesser extent, as well as in the East Slavic populations (Russia was known at one point as the land of the red haired people. Ive also heard that the Thracians (Balkans) had red hair but if you look at Balkan nations today, red hair is very very very rare. "Several accounts by Greek writers detail redheaded people. A fragment by the Greek poet Xenophanes describes the Thracians as blue-eyed and red haired. The Greek historian Herodotus described the "Budini", probably Udmurts and Permyak Finns located on the Volga in what is modern-day Russia, as being predominantly redheaded. The Greek historian Dio Cassius described Boudica, the famous Celtic Queen of the Iceni, to: "be tall and terrifying in appearance ... a great mass of red hair ... over her shoulders". The Roman Tacitus commented on the "red hair and large limbs of the inhabitants of Caledonia (Scotland)", which he linked with some red haired Gaulish tribes of Germanic and Belgic relation. Red hair has also been found in Asia, notably among the Tocharians who occupied the northwesternmost province of what is modern-day China. The 2nd millennium BC caucasian Tarim mummies in China were found with red and blonde hair and most likely were of European origin."


why do ethnic groups have higher risk than caucasian?


  • Usually when reading about different illnesses it always mentions that ethnic groups (african american,hispanic,etc..) have higher risks. Why does it say this? What is different about the ethnic peoples bodies that makes them more prone to these illnesses?
  • its because people like to be around others who look and think like they do and tend to marry within the group,and this is how ethnic groups begin, after many years genetic mutations arise within the group and because people are marring within the group and not outside of it it tends to keep their diseases and traits within the group. its not just ethnic groups like jewish people who display this trend, did you know that because most of the worlds royal families are related they have a higher incidence of left handedness and hemophilia that the rest of the population


Is diabetes found more commonly in certain age groups, ethnic groups, or a particular sex?


  • Is diabetes found more commonly in certain age groups, ethnic groups, or a particular sex?
  • Chances are, you're asking about type two diabetes, also known as adult onset diabetes, insulin resistance, or impaired glucose tolerance. Yes, the incidence of type two diabetes can be seen to vary considerably depending on ethnicity and age. Not as much with sex, however. Look up Pima Indians sometime for a really fascinating story illustrating how taking people who's ancestors had a healthy 'living off the land' lifestyle to the typical western diet of high Calorie to low nutrition ratio foods, and a sedate lifestyle, resulted in the incidence of type two diabetes to soar up to almost 50% by age fifty in all Pima Indians. Yes, there's a genetic component, but it's the diet and lack of exercise that have a more profound influence on whether or not you're likely to become type two diabetic.


Do Italians have more testosterone than other ethnic groups?


  • I'm part Italian-American, and I have heard that Italians and those of Italian descent have more of it than other white ethnic groups. As a result it gives us more than average body hair (which I somewhat inherited) and a higher sex drive. Maybe it's the Mediterranean countries? When Im horny and maybe talk of past and future sexual escapades, and a family member said "that's your Italian blood!" I mean there proud of their Italian heritage and I am too, but is it the higher testosterone of my heritage?
  • It's a big myth. Everyone has similar testosterone levels, and no exceptions or special cases exist. Climate also affects the feeling to have sex. Also, darker the skin greater will be the sex-drive, although the hormone levels are negligibly high or low in different ethnic groups. And finally, I've heard French men are gay, but in reality they are not gay. Come on, grow up, it's just childish to ask such unscientific questions!


Do you mind 1 ethnic group making the food of another ethnic group (in restaurants)?


  • Do you think its odd when one ethnic group cooks the food at a restaurant of a different ethnic group? An example would be that in New York, many Mexican workers make pizza in the pizza places and many Asian people make Tex-Mex. Does this take away from the authenticity of the food? JUST A QUESTION, I personally dont care as long as it tastes good, but I have heard people make comments about it.
  • I'm with you , as Long as it's Good Food , I dont care who makes it !


Do Asians have faster metabolism than any other ethnic group?


  • I went to china last week and I was surprised to notice there were NO overweight people. NONE. My group got to experience the Chinese food culture, and it felt like we ate ALL the time. I assume it's a different life style, but IS there a physiological difference between the different ethnic groups? I would assume that maybe their bodies are more efficient at energy burning? race, whatever.
  • Not as a people. They tend to work far harder IMO A huge number of Chinese people live and eat a very basic diet, and would have heard of US fast foods. Those that do are packing on the lbs and have become the same obesity problems as the US faces
