The Iron Elephant: What You Should Know about the Dangers of Excess Body Iron
I just finished it. EVERYBODY SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!!!
The take-home lesson from this is that there has been some genetic modification of some sort, so there is a downside to the Paleo diet for many people. This book is hugely interesting especially in view of all the conditions that iron overload can cause or assist in manifesting. No wonder doctors and Big Pharma doesn’t want to go there. People not knowing about it are sick and need drugs, not the simple expedient of giving blood regularly. Avoiding iron-rich foods isn’t really feasible; the best thing is to just get your levels checked intelligently (that is, you’ll probably need to know more than the doctor since most doctors know ZIP about this matter) and then donate blood regularly.
