Based on Bernard.  Here is a quote:

"Iron is a double-edged sword...But too much iron can be toxic.  It can increase the risk of heart problems and may even worsent insulin resistance.  Iron encourages the production of unstable molecules called free radicals...Your body easily absorbs the [non-heme] form when it's in need of more iron, but the iron passes harmless out of the body when you have all you need.  In contrast, meats contain heme iron, which is like an uninvited guest at your party:  it barges in whether you need it or not.  Over the long run, meat eaters tend to accumulate too much iron."
           --Dr Bernard's Program for Reversing Diabetes, p. 68

Nice fact page if you are int'd on, "Do vegetarians get enough iron?"
http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/iron.htm
Wiki paints a little bleaker picture, though, if u r int'd.

Might have to do with the protein in meat itself as they increase absorption of nonheme:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17056805

And this may cause oxidative stress with aging:

I hate reading peples opinions with no facts to back up what they say...you might as well, just yell out, SUGAR IS BAD FOR YOU.....but as most things in science, it depends

But iron isnt all that hard to understand; iron accumulates in the male body
iron is tightly controlled most being in the form of hemeoglobin(65%) and then myoglobin(35%) extra iron that is absorbed gets stored in the cells as ferritin and lesser as hemosiderin.
low blood iron causes release of ferritin iron. iron is needed to make RBCs and well as B12, ironically you store enough B12 to last you 3-4years before delveloping anemia.

really iron is regulated in the body by how much is absorbed. usually a few mg's a day are absorbed, however when you need iron your body will absorb a lot more(like 3 grams a day)

the problem I have is if you eat a ton of iron can it be absorbed to the reticuloendothial cells and this could cause damage.?

men dont lose iron, ever, unless they lose blood....so the iron stays in the body..women lose iron via menes

I give blood every 6-8 weeks, I've given over 4 gallons in my lifetime, thus far

Impressive (about giving blood).  And I agree with your first statement - I'm the same way.  I wouldn't do that except that I thought you were a fan too.  But, actually, I'm not sure why.

Anyway, I still think you should start a thread "How I Lost 68 Pounds in 3 Months" or whatever it was.  You're the resident weight loss king around here.

I'll do after I get some blood work back, to make it more complete

what do you think of the info on this site?

http://www.treelight.com/health/nutrition/AmericanFoods.html

Wheat contains gluten, and for a large percentage of the population, gluten is as toxic as MSG. Gluten is the name for a family of proteins that act as "intestinal abrasives". They effectively sandpaper your insides until your intestines no longer function properly. When that happens, your intestines begin to absorb proteins that aren't fully digested. The gluten proteins are morphine-like opioids that don't break down easily. When you're body begins to absorb them, they produce an addiction response, similar to the one you get with MSG. But gluten proteins produce a variety of other problems, as well, including a type of adrenal exhaustion that makes it impossible to burn fat. Over time, your intestines become swollen, so you get a pot belly that makes you look even fatter than you are. (Medical "science" has figured out that there is a correlation between belly fat and disease, but it has so far failed to put two and two together to figure out that gluten is the cause of both. I put "science" in quotes to highlight that failure. They do study after study but, somehow, they fail to connect the dots.)

Estrogens and Cancer.  You mama weaned you off of breast milk a long time ago and for good reason:  her breast milk is chock full of estrogens. Well, so is cow's milk and researchers have long noted that many types of hormone-related cancers, such as breast, testicular and prostate, are significantly higher in populations with high levels of milk and dairy consumption.

My MD said this is full of bunk, that the stomach acid destroys all hormones, which is why you take hormones via a shot and  not via mouth

People over 40 should take Ubiquinol instead of Regular Co-Q-10.
people over 40 cannot break down the regular Co-Q-10 enough absorb.

Peak
THanksgiving is OVER
so your vacation from my questions is OVER

Ive been saving up....I'll do a few every few days, since I figure you have a life outside of this forum
1  I LOVE CEREAL....but I love milk(I get  organic milk, but it’s still milk, so I think it can increase inflammation..what can I use besides milk, thats NOT water?(and I rarely have cereal, maybe once a week.....)

2.  I cant find Beetroot Juice,(no trader joes near me) the store near me has BEETROOT POWDER..is thatthe same thing?  How much should I take?

3   I am concerned about fructose?  I get some blueberries(organic) 4oz of POM and 4 oz of Cranberry juice,,,,maybe an apple or organe,,,I try to walk 1 hour a day(usually after taking my juic) should I be concerned?

FInally
 what is NF2 gene?
http://www.nrf2.com/
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21031035

does it really get activated via plants(broccoli) and make the insides of arteries smooth?
SFN activates Nrf2 and decreases adhesion molecule expression: prevents inflammatory cells from binding to endothelial cells at bifurcations and stress points

Green vegetable-fueled Nrf2 activity prevents an early event in cardiovascular disease

1.  What is your goal?  Just a substitute with good taste? Or are you trying to get some protein?

2.  Beetroot Powder is not the same thing but it will have nitrates.  So will spinach, lettuce and celery.

3.  From what I have read, you want 25-50 grams of fructose per day usually.  Some people are more sensitive than others, so there is no magic formula.  Self nutrition has some listing for fructose that will give you a feel such as:

http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000011000000000000000.html

If you can't find what you're looking for there, you'll have to buy a nutritional program.  There's a lot of good cheap ones out there from what I have read.  I use Nutrinote myself.  It's got a weird, outdate GUI but has a big database comparatively.

eat something I like is the goal...I always thought health cereal was ok, I guess not.   but no answer about what to do about milk?
2.  Beetroot Powder is not the same thing but it will have nitrates.  So will spinach, lettuce and celery.
ok, I use it, I dont eat beats, I do eat spinach

3.  From what I have read, you want 25-50 grams of fructose per day usually.  Some people are more sensitive than others, so there is no magic formula.  Self nutrition has some listing for fructose that will give you a feel such as:
wow, so I can have about 2 apples a day to stay within 50mg or my 4oz of POM juice and 4oz of cranberry juice, 1 apple and a few blueberries...I never thought fructose was an issue, maybe it is

Keep in mind that many people do not think eating some extra fruit is a big deal.  Many cultures do it, of course, and are very healthy.  So that's yet another research item where we wish there was more data. 

If you're blood pressure is good and you're not putting on belly fat, then my two cents is that it's not having much of an effect on you.  Also, if you exercise a lot, a little extra fructose isn't probably going to hurt you.
