Spinach is not as good as people think
Posted this hoping there's someone will find a good place to work this into the article. -- Matthew 1130 11:39, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Iron deficincy anaemia
There is one page on "Iron deficiency anaemia" and one page on "iron deficiency (medicine)". They are closely related topics and perhaps they should be merged. Perhaps, a decision on a merge could by made by a consensus opinion soon and in the early stages of this subjects "medicine collaboration of the week", in order to prevent confusion at a later stage.
- I would vote for the pages to be merged. Snowman 19:32, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
- Disagreed. Different topics, big articles. `'mikka 20:56, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
i also strongly dissagree...ahsan masood
I replaced table under "Good Natural Sources of Iron (Foods)" since previous was vegy oriented and didn't include any heme iron group (fish-meat). Its not perfect, dosages aren't very specific, but I think it has enough variety.
Addition in the article
I made changes in the article by further adding information on what Iron Deficiency Anemia is and its causes, in the second paragraph.
Why is the serving size 100g for all the meats and differing amount for vegetables? It seems heavily skewed towards soya.
Tendinopathy an effect of iron deficiency?
Moved here from main article the claim that tendinopathy is caused by iron deficiency.
The study cited for this claim says only that fluoroquinolones (FQ) cause tendinopathies, and suggests fluoroquinolone-related iron chelation, not iron deficiency per se, causes tendinopathies:
"Badal S1, Her YF1, Maher LJ 3rd2. "J Biol Chem. 2015 Jul 23. pii: jbc.M115.671222. [Epub ahead of print] "*Non-antibiotic effects of fluoroquinolones in mammalian cells.*
"Fluoroquinolones (FQ) are powerful broad-spectrum antibiotics whose side effects include renal damage and, strangely, tendinopathies. ... "
The free full text suggests a role of iron chelation at page 6:
- These results suggest, for the first time, that FQ treatment can cause unanticipated epigenetic effects. Moreover, we suggest that the well-established linkage between FQ treatment and tendinopathy reflects impairment of collagen maturation by FQ. We suggest that it is the inhibition of collagen 4 prolylhydroxylases by FQ- mediated iron chelation, and repression of collagen P4H1 and LH1transcription that underlies the peculiar tendinopathy side effects of FQ antibiotics. ...
The study's conclusion:
- Thus, we propose that iron chelation by FQ antibiotics explains tendinopathy and nephrotoxicity in part through inhibition of iron-dependent dioxygenase enzymes.
iron amount in clam
The table has clam at #1 with 28 mg of iron per 100 g. However, http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/finfish-and-shellfish-products/4184/2 has "Mollusks, clam, mixed species, canned, liquid" entry with only 0.3 mg per 100 g. That is roughly a percent of what this article claims. Though the list also has "mussel" at #8, and isn't mussel also a sort of a clam? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 07:15, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
So, that was the one I got with Google search. Now I found entry "Mollusks, clam, mixed species, canned, drained solids" which has 44.7 mg per 100g. And that is over 1.5 more than given in this wiki article... 184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:25, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
