  1. Tom Hennessy Tom Hennessy Canada says:

    One might think the 'problem' stems from the fact the addition of iron to our foods leads to increased red blood cell production. LOGIC and science TELLS us CONCLUSIVELY iron leads to increased red blood cell production. This has been PROVEN. That is precisely WHY they GIVE you iron when you are 'anemic'. To make red blood cells. The 'coincidence' of increased red blood cell production AND asthma and eczema is NOT to be disregarded. The increased red blood cell production found in asthma is NOT secondary / hypoxia but DIRECTLY the CAUSE of the asthma / precedes the asthma CONTRARY to accepted thought.

    "High iron and low ascorbic acid concentrations in the dermis of
    atopic dermatitis patients"
    "Iron dermis levels might be implicated in atopic dermatitis patients"
    "These observations suggest that increased Fe and decreased Se concentrations in patients with childhood asthma may be responsible for the oxidant/antioxidant imbalance."
