Heredity explains African-American paradox

Heredity explains African-American paradox
 - Constance Hilliard, professor of history specializing in pre-colonial African history, discovered that West African women living in regions infested by tsetse flies, which attack cattle and so prevent dairy farming, have a much lower rate of postmenopausal hip fractures caused by osteoporosis than their East African peers. The West African women, however, have diets low in calcium, which prevents bone loss that leads to osteoporosis. The research was recently published in the Bonekey edition of Nature.
