NONHEME IRON INTAKE "UNLIKELY" TO RAISE CORONARY HEART DISEASE RISK

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

NONHEME IRON INTAKE "UNLIKELY" TO RAISE CORONARY HEART DISEASE RISK "in persons with normal iron metabolism, because the absorption of nonheme iron is minimal if iron stores are adequate," Alberto Ascherio, MD/DrPH, and Walter Willett, MD/DrPH, both of the Harvard School of Public Health, theorized in an editorial published in the April 21 New England Journal of Medicine. Nonheme iron is contained in dietary supplements as well as in "largely nonmeat [food] sources"; heme iron is available "mainly from red meat," the writers noted.
