Iron and Copper Supplementation

Postby tfrohling » Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:19 pm

I received info from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) about a recommendation to the FDA to reduce or eliminate iron and copper due to link with Alzheimers Disease.

From their summary:
The Physician Committee’s new report, Metals of Concern in Common Multivitamins, finds that common multivitamins, including One a Day Women’s 50+ Healthy Advantage and One a Day Women’s Active Metabolism, contain up to twice the amount of copper a person should consume in an entire day. In research studies, ingestion of copper and iron in even slightly elevated quantities is associated with increased risk of cognitive problems.

Has Hammer seen the recommendations? What would your positiion on these supplements? Thanks,
