Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Unintended consequences: treating iron deficiency leads to feminism

    Here, from California Medicine Man via Instapundit, is one of the most important advances in medicine.

    Dr. Ford states:

    “In the early sixties, hematologists became cognizant of the significance of iron deficiency anemia in premenopausal women”

    it was easily rectified by daily iron supplements. This rapidly built up these women’s iron stores and “cured” their anemia and its symptoms?

    My professor’s “moment of clarity” came when he realized that this discovery occurred at the same time as the rise of feminism in America. He postulated that prior to that, the unfair inequality women suffered at the hands of men was upsetting but they were just too tired to do anything about it.
