    Objectives

    This study compared dietary risk factors among Southern-born and other Blacks in Central Harlem.

    Methods

    A survey of residents of Central Harlem was used to compute a « healthy diet » score for 621 subjects.

    Results

    Southern-born respondents had the highest-risk diets.

    Although their numbers were small.

    Caribbean-born respondents, particularly those younger than 45 years. had the lowest-risk diets.

    Conclusions

    The variation in diets in Central Harlem was considerable, with Southern-born Blacks at highest dietary risk for chronic diseases.

    These results remain to be tested elsewhere, as does the contribution of other chronic disease risk factors.
