Cauacasian gym rats more likely to get clogged arteries

Caucasian men who exercise three times above the U.S. national guidelines for working out (150 minutes per week) are 86% more likely than black men, and those who exercise less, to develop a buildup of plaque in their hearts by the time they're middle aged, according to a new study.

The team from the University of Illinois, Chicago, researched the coronary artery calcification (CAC) of over 3,000 18 to 30-year-old white and black men from Birmingham, Ala., Chicago, Minneapolis, and Oakland, Calif. over 25 years.

Would have used "white gym rat" but I feared that people would think I was talking about actual rats

So you're saying I should

1) Stop trying to work out regularly

and

2) Only date white guys while they're young 

:oprah:

Im a caucasian male and im one heck of a gym rat 😳

 

i better read this 👀

 

EDIT: oh were talking 450 minutes a week or more.... i easily workout less than 300 

 

50m X 5 days a week = 250m a week so im way below that :)

Is there any relation with all the crap gym rats put into their bodies? Or just race?

Idk, i could be totally wrong but imo, whites tend to depend on protein shakes and extras more than blacks, who tend to be more limited money-wise and you could argue that they reach better results faster.

Idk, neither God or Evolution made us to need these chemicals or even resist them in the long term.

And the places they made the study in have very different socioeconomical levels.

I feel like this study needs more info than just a racial percentage
