The Motivation 

According to the CDC (2020), high blood pressure is more common in non-Hispanic Black adults (54%) than in non-Hispanic white adults (46%), non-Hispanic Asian adults (39%), or Hispanic adults (36%). A heightened response is required due to the disparities in high blood pressure control in African American men.

Diabetes is common in 10% of blacks aged 35-49 compared to 6% of whites. 

Stroke is present in 0.7% of blacks aged 18-34 compared to 0.4% of whites the same age. Stroke is common in 2% of African Americans compared to 1% of whites aged 35-49 and 7% vs. 4%, respectively, in those aged 50-64.

What we eat impacts our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. 
I will transform the way my community views food. I will make a shift from the fatty foods that causes African Americans to have higher health disparities and allow us as a people to be more conscious about the foods we eat to help us have a balance in our wellness levels.
