    What is the Urban Health Science Initiative?

    Pertinent new information to the health of African Americans

    With a culture of ignorance prevailing and unwillingness to address deep seated personal but obvious issues, how is the Black community going to acknowledge  diseases and their severity as it pertains to the physiological dysfunction we see on a daily basis?

    Destination Health - #23 - We're staying on the No Grain Train and learning more

    in Health

    I will admit that my comfort food of choice would be a warm loaf of crusty bread (yes the whole loaf) and some cold butter to slather (good word!), watch it melt into all the tiny, delectable holes and enjoy. I did use to do what they say is healthy and use 100% whole grain bread....or swap out my white rice for brown rice....and now what?! We are finding more and more research that the grains - especially what has been done to them through  mass-production may be the root of so many of our health issues. Hop on board the No Gran Train and join us as we delve into this issue a little more.
