Noah The African, my brother. You know I have always believed this because one need only take a look at the elderly people in their family and see how much heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks are in it. These are diseases that are mainly caused by stress. There was an issue of TIME magazine I believe that did an expose about the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrom on the body. This was about a year after 11 September. I was thinking as I read the articles, imagine if September 11 happened on a daily basis. Thus the problems black people have today with their health. Not to mention all of the other forces such as genetically modified food, fast food, chemically treated foods, sedentary lifestyles etc. If not for these factors, I think that African people would be living well into their 100s if not well into their 80's and 90's.
