Japan hosts development talks with African leaders this week, looking to boost its presence on the continent and offer an alternative to investments by an increasingly assertive China.

Despite research and clinical significance, limited information is available on the relations between skeletal muscle SM and age in adults, specifically among Hispanics, African Americans AA , and Asians. The aim was to investigate possible sex and ethnic SM differences in adults over an age range of 60 years. SM was estimated based on DXA-measured appendicular lean-soft tissue using a previously reported prediction equation. Locally weighted regression smoothing lines were fit to examine SM trends and to localize age cutoffs; piecewise multiple linear regression models were then applied, controlling for weight and height, to identify age cutoffs for sex-specific changes in SM among the ethnic groups. The age of 27 years was identified for women and men as the cut-off after which SM starts to show a negative association with age.

This practice later continued among visitors from " the Western regions", mainly European traders who often came with their South Asian lascar crew in addition to African crew members, in some cases.
