With every "pro" their seems to be a "con" to match it. I'm glad doctors continue to study the differences between different ethnic groups and realize their may be a correlation between a medical problem and how a group handles their environment differently.

I recently read that a medical study of 20,000 people is being done to study the effects of Vitamin D & fish oil supplements to better understand the health benefits associated with it. Here's a quick quote from the article:

"One quarter of the participants will be black. The researchers believe higher rates of cancer, heart disease, and stroke among blacks, compared with whites, might be related to dark skin’s lower ability to make vitamin D from absorbing sunlight, and they want to establish whether taking vitamin D supplements could reduce or eliminate these disparities."
