Heightened Diabetes risk in blacks and Asians

Today BBC News reported “British people of South Asian, African or African Caribbean descent are significantly more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than their European counterparts, researchers have warned.”

This surely must emphasise that vitamin D might play a role here. A lot of illnesses present racial disparities and I don’t think we can just rest on the excuses of healthcare inequalities – because there aren’t really any in Britain – and racial susceptibility without co-factors.

As a side note, consider helping out the Vitamin D Council here.
