Re: Some illnesses and treatments are race specific

I can't see how, unless you're accurately gathering that data at birth...

You need to be able to distinguish between the shades of brown of a fairer genetic groups (e.g. Irish, Scandinavians) who have gotten lots of sun exposure to those of darker genetic group (e.g. Africans, Indians) who have gotten very little sun exposure. There's sure to be overlap in the skin shades of those quite disparate groups with differing UV radiation exposure levels.
