This Day in History: Teddy Roosevelt Discusses America’s Race Problem

This Day in History:, Teddy Roosevelt Discusses America’s Race Problem. February 13, 1905. Roosevelt delivered a speech to the NYC Republican Club in which he discussed the country’s state of race relations. During his administration —  just 40 years after the end of the Civil War — much bitterness existed between the North and the South. The West had also seen an influx of Asian immigrants, sparking new nationalistic and racial tensions. Roosevelt’s solution was to proceed slowly toward social and economic equality, taking caution against radical changes in government policy. He suggested a gradual adjustment in the attitudes of whites toward ethnic minorities. It would take nearly six decades with the 1964 Civil Rights Act for government efforts aimed at correcting racial bias to be passed into law

Even though there has been a decline in inflation, consumers are still upset with the remaining high prices that began sharply rising in 2021. The Associated Press reports that economists believe this era of inflation should be different from the price increases of the 1970s and 1980s, which took much longer to come down. .

Niacin is found in foods such as nuts, fortified cereals, breads, meat and fish, NBC News reports. . According to the Mayo Clinic, 16 milligrams of niacin per day are recommended for men, and non-pregnant women are advised to consume 14 milligrams per day. But Dr. Stanley Hazen, the study's senior author, says that 1 in 4 Americans consumes higher levels than the recommended daily allowance. The average person should avoid niacin supplements now that we have reason to believe that taking too much niacin can potentially lead to an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, Dr. Stanley Hazen, the study's senior author, via NBC News. However, researchers have yet to determine what exactly constitutes "too much niacin.". In the 1940s, scientists found that low niacin levels could lead to a condition known as pellagra, which is potentially fatal. Since then, many foods have been fortified with niacin, causing Americans to get plenty of the B vitamin in their diets. . In the past, doctors also prescribed niacin to improve cholesterol levels before statins were developed, NBC News reports. . I don’t think anyone would have predicted that niacin would have been pro-inflammatory. , Dr. Amanda Doran, an assistant professor of medicine in the division of cardiovascular medicine at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, via NBC News. This is a powerful study because it combines a variety of techniques: clinical data, genetic data and mouse data, Dr. Amanda Doran, an assistant professor of medicine in the division of cardiovascular medicine at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, via NBC News
