Iron deficiency, and the brain

In our body are the same elements, of which the world is constructed. So, and iron. But it is very small - at the adult person only 3-5,
Seemingly, we should not experience shortage of iron, and not only because we need a little, but because it is in almost everything we eat. In addition, iron is almost not allocated from the body (daily loss of urine amount of 0.02-0.8 mg).
Of course, women during menstruation lose a lot of iron - up to 80 mg, the average up to 25 mg per day. During pregnancy a woman gives fruit 0.5 g of iron, during lactation - 0,3 g
Even in ancient times, when the element Fe was not known, people realized that mineral waters containing iron, it is possible to treat anemia. They were called massovymi, for they returned health who have lost a lot of blood soldiers.
We lose iron - both men and women during surgical interventions with any bleeding. Women are much more likely to suffer from a lack of iron. And the children too, but here it is because of improper nutrition.
When too little iron
Prof. A. Segel leads evidence that in the blood of every adult human contains normal 25 trillion of red blood cells, according to the American scientists - 35 trillion. On 10 trillion less or more, is it really so important? More important, apparently, that for 1 breaks up with 7-10 million blood cells. Thus, from them is liberated iron, which immediately goes into the creation of new blood cells. Red blood cells transport oxygen is not only light but also in all the cells of our body. This is due to chemical reactions, in which the main role is given gland. Red blood cells are removed from the body of carbon dioxide, regulate acid-base balance and, as if casually, spread throughout the body ions of some salts, fragments of organic molecules, etc.,
Red blood cells contain iron, regulate primarily the redox mechanisms during embryonic development of the brain. This is their main purpose. Quite small mistakes in this process, to come up with a defective offspring. The symptoms are different. Children do not learn, their mental abilities are small, they feel constant fatigue. In addition, these children pale, dark, unhealthy skin, headache often, they are irritable, breath they have quick, superficial, compensating the lack of oxygen in the lungs; they also suffer various gastrointestinal diseases, constipation, marked nausea, vomiting, late trophic changes of skin, hair (alopecia), they are thin and brittle nails, and cracks in the corners of the mouth. They are more likely to be born to mothers in the body are low in iron.
Severe anemia usually develops as a result not only one deficiency in the diet. Usually the cause is not noticed in time long internal bleeding (for example, in the kidneys and other organs). So first of all you need to pass the inspection.
Nutritionists cite the following reasons for the lack of iron in the body:
1) low physical activity, poor nutrition. If there is too little, and iron will not be enough;
2) dramatic lifestyle change that is usually incur an equally dramatic change of power, especially if the new products contain iron in unassimilable form or no;
3) the consumption of high purity products, such as white sugar and white salt, white bread, white rice, etc. and the saturation of the organism large amount of phosphatesthat does not promote the absorption of iron.
Simply put, iron deficiency is guilty of the modern "good" food, i.e. a lot of expensive sweets, products made of white flour and different refined "Goodies", devoid of iron. Sometimes this happens because of too quick and inept weight loss. In children may occur iron deficiency, if the diet is too much milk and too little of other products. Milk, as is known, almost does not contain iron.
