IN Q= A study in
RUNS=:32
OUT Q=iron absorption

((
A study in this month's Journal of the American Chemical Society finds the kinds of food we eat can contribute to the problem.
Specifically, red meat like beef contains a form of iron that is more easily absorbed by the body than the kind of iron found in fish and poultry.
Processed foods-- like fried chicken, degrade the iron, making it less available to the body.
Recent trends away from eating beef can therefore contribute to iron deficiency.
The researchers are also just the latest to suggest that drinking orange juice can improve iron absorption.))

Vitamin supplements can also be very beneficial-- for instance, iron is recommended during pregnancy.
