Lu D, Palmer JR, Rosenberg L, Shields AE, Orr EH, DeVivo I, Cozier YC. Perceived racism in relation to telomere length among African-American women in the Black Women’s Health Study. Ann Epidemiol 2019;36:33-9. doi: 10.1016/j.annepidem.2019.06.003. Telomeres (protein structures at the ends of chromosomes) become shorter as a person becomes older. Telomeres that are shorter than expected for a given age have been found to be associated with premature morbidity and mortality (earlier ages of death and illness). In the BWHS, an analysis of telomere length and self-reported experience of everyday racism found shorter telomere length among women who reported not discussing those experiences of racism with others. Further work is need to confirm this association. link to online article

Diabetologia 2017;60(11):2221-5. doi: 10.1007/s00125-017-4400-6. BWHS participants have been asked questions about experience with interpersonal racism in daily life (everyday racism) and lifetime racism with respect to police, housing, and work. We assessed racism in relation to type 2 diabetes from 1995 through 2011 in the BWHS, during which time 5,344 women were diagnosed with diabetes. Both everyday and lifetime racism were associated with increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Increased weight associated with racism accounted for about half of the increase in risk. link to online article

In the BWHS, the occurrence of obesity was greater among women who had the greatest experiences of racism.

In the BWHS, more than 1000 women have reported the development of asthma. We found that the incidence of asthma was increased among women who reported hight levels of experiences of racism. It may be that chronic stress resulting from experiences of racism increases the incidence of adult-onset asthma through effects on the immune system and the airways. link to online article

J Health Care Poor Underserved 2010;21(1):287-300. NIHMSID: NIHMS209351. Perceived discrimination has been associated with health screening behavior in some populations. We assessed whether experiences of discrimination, as reported by BWHS participants in 1997, are associated with having had Pap smears, mammography, or colonoscopy. Both everyday discrimination and discrimination on the job, in housing, or by police were associated with not having received a Pap smear. There was no relation between discrimination and mammography or colonoscopy use. link to online article
