Fatal iron poisoning in children from pills is perfect confirmation of the deadly impact of IRON LOADING. Formula milk is commonly fortified with 20 to 30 times the amount of iron that occurs in mother's milk. IRON LOADING is associated with obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and strokes. A recent study documents that 34% of American babies are obese or at risk of obesity by the age of nine months.

Let's have a meetup and figure out how to encourage public awareness of the hazards of IRON LOADING.

During June 1992-January 1993, five children aged 11-18 months in the Los Angeles area died after ingesting iron supplement tablets.
