Recent advances in the understanding of iron metabolism has led to
the discovery of an UPPER LIMIT to the amount of iron the body can safely store.
When this upper limit is met the iron actually begins to leak .. spilling out into the .. sea within. This iron rusts , oxidizes .. destroying the 'anti'- oxidants in the body primarily vitamin C / ascorbate , vitamin E / tocopherol .. the gamet of antioxidants.
This is WHY the leaders in the medical field are advising the consumption of antioxidants by the general population.
Iron is such an important mineral in the body it is controlled by absorption
and the body would never allow the iron to build to such toxic levels.
Iron has been shown to be the 'switch' which the body uses to add or subtract electrons / oxidation / reduction.
This is 'turned on' so to speak by the leaking of iron into the sea within
This is accomplished by raising or lowering of the ph in the body. When
the body becomes acidic .. lower ph the iron leaks out to cause a oxidation reaction.
