Iron Poisoning & Copper Deficiency

 

 

Note: their cleverly worded “accredited”, "scholarly, peer-reviewed" articles below indicate that iron facilitates the growth of cancers and bacteria, while maintaining the fraud that "Iron is a nutrient".


 

Viruses hijack cells in order to replicate, and efficient replication needs an iron-replete host.

Jun 8, 2006 ? It is tempting to speculate that increased iron availability stimulates the proliferation of intestinal bacteria and increases the production of gut-derived uraemic toxins and bacterial translocation. Moreover, unabsorbed iron may act as a catalyst in the production of hydroxyl radicals [25]. Reducing intestinal iron availability in inflamed patients may therefore be beneficial.
