The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that around 700 women die from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth every year. Black mothers are three to four times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than White women. Currently, we are seeing similar trends with the effects of COVID-19 on the Black community, with Black counties having infection rates nearly three times higher and death rates that are about six times higher than majority white counties.
Disparities around maternal mortality and COVID-19 death rates are impacted by pre-existing conditions that, per the reports, Black people are more likely to experience, like hypertension and cardiovascular issues, due to social and structural inequalities and food choices.
There is a food fix to these pre-existing conditions of which Dr Greger goes into detail in his book How Not to Die.
