Thanks to the great sources of information on this site I have learnt that Iron deposits in the brain are really bad news. In light of last night’s fantastic documentary (link
) about Zamboni’s work, this link between Iron deposits and damage/disability is now really playing on my mind
I know that the topic of diet is fairly subjective, but how sensible would it be to avoid food sources and supplements that are high in Iron? Or is the amount of Iron that could potentially end up in the brain not so closely linked with diet/supplements, since blood already contains lots of Iron anyhow?
I suppose I’m wondering whether it would be worthwhile actively adjusting my diet to restrict Iron intake. Or is the proposed reflux mechanisms involved in CCSVI what is most likely responsible for Iron in the brain, and therefore the affect of diet may be academic since blood (rich in Iron) is getting into the brain anyhow in MS patients?
