A new class at the University of North Texas is teaching students about the world’s vast variety of foods in a unique way. The "Global Kitchens" class lets UNT students prepare, taste and learn about cuisine from around the world. The class is offered through the Department of Hospitality Management and Tourism.
Calcium may trigger certain cancers in African Americans
The Health and Medicine Division of the National Academy of Sciences has long recommended that adults consume at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium daily, and women age 50 and older should consume even more. What’s great advice for Americans with European ethnicity, however, may not be great advice for Americans with West African ancestry. That demographic has high susceptibility to certain cancers when exposed to America’s calcium-rich, dairy food culture, according to UNT History Professor Constance Hilliard, researcher in evolutionary African history.
