Typically, blood vessels in the lungs don’t allow clots to enter the arteries.

Investigators looked at data from nearly 500 people with a rare hereditary disease that causes them to have enlarged blood vessels in the lungs. Healthy iron levels are important as low iron can cause anemia and cardiovascular problems. Higher iron may protect against heart disease, but it.

Time to get your iron levels checked? Iron deficiency anemia is the single most common nutritional disorder across the world. Two billion people are anemic, which means more than 30 percent of the Earth’s population. But research now indicates that iron deficiency is no laughing matter.

According to a new study by Imperial College London, too little iron in the blood may increase your risk of suffering a stroke and vascular dementia by causing blood to become stickier, making it more prone to producing clots.

Also, repeated phlebotomies frequently lead to iron deficiency; because iron-deficient erythrocytes are more rigid than ordinary ones, the risk of stroke is thereby increased.

  • Forget boring and expensive supplements, eat whole foods vegan and you can’t go wrong. Throw in some vegan junk food every so often and you’ve got bliss with no animals being harmed either, win win =)

  • I believe the iron in potatoes is concentrated in the skin, but at 2:37 the potato is being peeled. It could just be a library video clip I suppose.

  • Sorry, but I’m not buying that bit that Mic (more like prick) the vegan said. Even coupled with vitamin C, the bioavailability of non heme iron doesn’t come anywhere close to surpassing that of heme iron, where he got that information I don’t know. The bioavailability of heme iron from meats is around 15-50%, far surpassing the meager 3x absorption of iron when taken with vitamin C. I’m all for clean eating and healthy living, but let’s stick to facts.

  • Thanks for sharing this post with all of us. I found this post really helpful in finding the best iron-rich food. Even i have a list of best vegetarian iron rich food. Check out the list here: https://www.fitnessattention.com/vegetarian-iron-rich-foods-nutrition-stripped/

  • I have always been anemic, even when dinner every day included a hamburger patty(my mother wasnt an imaginative cook). I take a good quality supplement with vitamin c every day. Those who insist that I should be getting all my iron from my food-every meal I eat is geared towards perfect iron absorption. Still not enough. Step down from your soapbox.
