Well, different ethnic groups certainly differ (statistically) in their biochemistry: look at e.g. how lactose (in)tolerance is geographically spread or at the tolerance of alcohol in East Asia peoples... As to whether there's a simple... (more)

I have the telltale dark circles that everyone on the Middle Eastern side of my family has. As I get older, they get worse and worse. I had a friend who is a makeup artist try some airbrushing out on me and he couldn't even eliminate them... (more)

Is there any ethnomidcal study on the enthicity of people in the modern world and their dental problems. Or does anyone talked to dentist and they told stories on tooth issues related to ethnicity or cultural background.

One hygienist told me probably due to my ethnicity, I had tooth decay. I wouldn't take what she says seriously, since she was incompetent in her job. There has been scientific studies where it's the western diet that causes tooth decay.

I've always wondered if the different levels in carb tolerance that we often see has anything to do with genetic differences that related to ethnicity. I, for example, am half Italian (mother born there) and half Jewish-Russian (perhaps Belarus;... (more)

Scotch/Irish and Seminole/Cherokee... very sensitive to carbs. I get fat easily if I eat too many, my blood sugar gets too high. Even when it comes to alcohol, I simply cannot tolerate it. 2 drinks and I'm done. But on the reservation, the... (more)

I'm not aware of such a database. I do know that American Indians are thought to have a genetic disposition to be unable to utilize carbohydrates. My belief however, is that they don't have the 12000 to 17000 years of natural selection (those... (more)
