:"The diagnostic criteria for iron deficiency in infants
should be reevaluated."If one is going to study genomics one MUST be ASSURED information used to study genomics is SOUND.

Let us all agree , medicine , therefore genomics , has a source , and that source is based on a paradox.

Not a good start.

The paradox being , the human female is the only female of a species which is univerally iron deficient. That accepted paradox is why we add the metal iron to all our floured products , that and all our children are iron deficient , another paradox.

The fact being , noone is iron deficient , and all that oxidation which is 'disturbing' genomics , causing genetic mutation , is actually coming FROM the increased iron in humans , which is coming from meat.

Increased iron stores , oxidation / rust , being THE premiere DNA damager.

An example of children diagnosed iron deficient , when they are NOT iron deficient is described here.

Younger researchers looking at the work of their predecessors found them to be wanting , due to the fact the kids were , healthy and happy , BUT , didn't meet the criteria set out by the old f#rts , IE: hemoglobin of 11.

"The diagnostic criteria for iron deficiency in infants should be reevaluated."

This is an example of how they believe iron damages DNA.

“Our results also suggest that iron could be raising the risk of bowel cancer by increasing the number of cells in the bowel with APC faults. The more of these cells in the bowel, the greater the chance that one of these will become a starting point for cancer."
