Abstract

Recent reports implicating excess storage iron as a risk factor in coronary heart disease have prompted a reevaluation of the physiological role of iron. When the consequences of both iron depletion and iron overload are considered, it becomes apparent that recommendations to the general public regarding iron status need to be based on results of sound scientific investigations and not only on conjecture and hypotheses. © Williams and Wilkins 1995.
