    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "SICKLE-CELL ANEMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION


    Established  by the Black Panther party in 1971to test and create a cure for sickle-cell anemia ( a deadly blood disease that affects primarily Black Americans), the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation informs people about sickle-cell anemia and maintains a national advisory committee of doctors to research this crippling disease.


    In conjunction with the People’s Free Medical Research Health Clinics the Sickle -Cell  Anemia Research Foundation to date has tested nearly half a million people throughout the country in the last three years.


    While more research  is needed to discover treatment and a cure for the disease, people must first be informed about it and tested to see if they have it or its side effects. To accomplish this, the Sickle -Cell Anemia Research Foundation publishes and disseminates brochures and other printed materials with facts about sickle-cell anemia." HUEY P. NEWTON "The Black Panther Party Service to the People Programs 


    Sickle cell anemia (sickle cell disease) is a disorder of the blood caused by an inherited abnormal hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein within the red blood cells). The abnormal hemoglobin causes distorted (sickled) red blood cells. The sickled red blood cells are fragile and prone to rupture. When the number of red blood cells decreases from rupture (hemolysis), anemia is the result. This condition is referred to as sickle cell anemia. The irregular sickled cells can also block blood vessels causing tissue and organ damage and pain.

    Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disease that's caused by an abnormal hemoglobin which causes the blood to take on a crescent or "sickled" shape. The sickled red blood cells are fragile and prone to rupture. Once the cells become sickled, it's difficult for them to pass through the vessels and they become stuck. Once this happens, one can face chronic pain, organ or tissue damage, strokes, even death.

    Vitamin D3 to the Rescue – Beyond the Label

    in Health

    Before the year 2000, very few doctors ever considered the possibility that you might be vitamin D deficient, however, as the technology to measure vitamin D became inexpensive and widely available, more and more studies were done and it became increasingly clear that vitamin D deficiency was absolutely rampant.  Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common in the US but many Americans mistakenly believe they aren't at risk because they consume vitamin-D-fortified foods (such as milk). There are very few foods that actually have therapeutic levels of vitamin D naturally and even fortified foods do not contain enough vitamin D to support your health needs


    Some signs that may indicate you are at risk of Vitamin D deficiency are: you have darker skin, you feel “blue,” you are 50 or older, you are overweight/obese/have a higher muscle mass, your bones ache, you have a sweaty head, and/or you have Gut trouble.  A new study has found that an insufficient level of vitamin D in older adults doubles the risk of Alzheimer ’s disease. But it’s not just older folks who aren’t getting enough of the sunshine vitamin; most kids don’t get sufficient amounts either.


    What is vitamin D? Why is it important? Why aren’t people getting enough? And what are its best food sources? Join us on HEALTH OUTSIDE THE BOX to learn answers to these questions, what to do about it and MORE!
