Researchers Find The One Food That Is Most Dangerous To Black Women

Obesity is a problem which faces all American, but especially among African-American women. A recent study has revealed the number one arch-enemy for black women when it comes to being overweight: the burger. As part of the Black Women’s Health Study, Boston University’s Slone Epidemiology Center researchers followed almost 20,000 black women who signed up. Women’s diets were tracked with special emphasis on eight specific unhealthy foods: fried fish, Chinese food, pizza, fried chicken, Mexican food, burgers, soft drinks and French fries. The most striking and obvious result of the study showed that women who ate at least two...

Joan Rivers Recovering After Going Into Cardiac Arrest

  Yesterday we told you that Joan Rivers was rushed to the hospital after suffering cardiac and respiratory arrest while undergoing throat surgery. Since then Joan has received an out pouring of love and support and her daughter, Mellissa Rivers flew in from L.A to be by her mothers side. “I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family,” Melissa said in a statement. “We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.” Joan surprised many of her friends including Michael Lucas who had been at Joan’s last comedy show on Wednesday. He told CNN that while doing her set, she looked better than ever. What was ironic was that Joan was talking about what it would be like if people were talking about her dropping dead on stage. “She said, ‘You know I’m 81 years old, and I could drop dead at any moment and you would be so lucky because you will have a story to tell your friends for the rest of your life,’”  Even though it was just a joke, you must admit that it was just a bit weird and maybe she was not feeling too well but tried to make light of it. Michael Lucas said that her Set was 1 hour long and that...

Joan Rivers Hospitalized In Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest

It has been reported that Joan Rivers is in critical condition in a NYC hospital. I was sad when I read this because at 81 years old Joan Rivers still had it when it came to comedy. Some of her jokes did fall flat I must admit but it is her spirit that we all admire. According to reports Joan was rushed to a New York City hospital in critical condition after a call saying that a woman was in cardiac arrest. The NYC Fire Department rushed her to the Mt. Sinai Hospital this morning and it was later confirmed that the woman was in fact Joan Rivers. I don’t know about you but I am guilty of being a slave to her show “Fashion Police” where she is undoubtedly the life of the party. How many times would she say something and have her co-hosts doubled over in stitches or hiding there faces embarrassed because they couldn’t believe Joan just said that. I am rooting for her and I am sure many of her fans and coworkers are too. She has been working very hard, still doing stand up comedy with shows booked all over the United States until the Holidays. We hope she pulls though and takes a break from everything, we get it though, as we get older it helps to keep active and to connect...
