The appearance of iron .. free iron in the body has the same result as the iron which is given to you by your doctor in order to correct your anemia.
Your doctor either infuses / injects iron into your vein or he gives you iron supplements which raise the levels of iron.
The appearance of iron .. free iron .. signals the body to produce red blood cells .. which in turn the body does exactly what it has been told to do .. increase
production of red blood cells.
This is called erythrocytosis .. increased production of erythrocytes .. red blood cells.
The medical profession has quite a large window in which it will either treat or not treat what they consider to be increased red blood cells.
In fact studies have shown the amount of red blood cells considered and shown to be detrimental in women .. decreased live birth / pregnancy complications .. is well below the cutoff marker used by doctors to even consider the fact they are
to be treated for excessive red blood cell mass / too many red blood cells.
Too many red blood cells leads to increased red blood cell destruction .. and this leads to a buildup of iron in the spleen and kidneys and other organs.
There are many theories as to the cause of disease and this is one.
The iron from the meat we eat builds to toxic levels in the body and causes all disease.
There are many ways this is manifested , be it the 'feeding' of cancer , bacteria or virus' , or the lack of antioxidants in the body for the very basics of human immune response.
Since elevated iron in the body leads to massive levels of RUST / oxidation one would conclude either the removal of said iron or the attack of the rust produced by the iron would be in order?
BUT I'M .. ANEMIC .. ?
Here you will find a substance which has been shown to be effective in the removal and the quenching of the
rust occuring as a result of the elevated levels of iron in the body .
You will also find studies which support the use of this substance and these studies have been conducted by the greatest minds of the day
and the articles are to be found in the greatest medical database in the world.
In the mouse .. the animal most likely to be used in studies .. they have shown when the mouse receives too
little phytic acid in his diet he has an increase of iron levels in the brain. MANY times the amount of iron in the brain than when he receives adequate phytic acid.
Phytic acid is a substance found in our plant foods .. chiefly our grains which is removed in the modern refining
of our flours.
Coupled with an increase of iron this leads to increased oxidation / rust in the body which destroys the antioxidants
in the body .. much needed antioxidants.
Tocopherol / vitamin E by virtue of BEING an antioxidant is destroyed in this increased rust / oxidation .. scenario.
This leads to many different problems but in this instance we are speaking to anemia and thusly appropriately
enough .. iron destroys tocopherol.
Hemolysis of red blood cells destroys tocopherol and this leads to a circle of increased iron absorption to compensate for the loss of the red blood cells. .. PLUS the vitamin E deficiency leads to a poorly formed / nonviable red blood cell.
This poorly formed red blood cell has no staying power and thusly the destruction .. early destruction of red blood cell leads to even more rust / oxidation caused by the appearance of the iron core of the red blood cell .
This would normally be counteracted by the levels of 'anti' - oxidants , the antirust nutrients in the body.
As previously stated though the lack of tocopherol leads to an almost pure state of erythrocytosis / increased production and destruction of red blood cells which leads to an iron LOADING hemolytic anemia.
Thiamin .. an iron binder .. when deprived from an animal
results in a PURE ERYTHROCYTOSIS .. pure hemolytic anemia .. increased production and destruction of red blood cells.
Thiamin is a B vitamin and all B vitamins are considered to be antioxidant and thusly the potential is there
for increases in rust / oxidation to destroy thiamin and result in increased production and destruction of red blood cells
leading to hemolytic anemia.
An anemia of the BLOOD / lack of red blood cells .. but .. NOT an anemia of lack of iron.
The same anemic condition experienced by astronauts.
