The Iron Factor of Aging synthesizes a vast array of disparate studies and observations into a cohesive plan for a dietary strategy to minimize cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and other age-related disorders. Focus on iron as a central player in a range of disorders makes sense of otherwise confusing disease statistics worldwide. Dr. Facchini's point of view offers a unifying explanation of lower age-related disease rates in France, Japan and some Mediterranean countries. The work presents a comprehensive account of how we can control absorption of iron from diet and how iron's darker side can be a very real hazard to health. It is a must reading for practicing clinicians, nutritionists and the public.
