Eat Meat for Health
A new study published in the "Journal of the American Dietetic Association" reports that women past the age of menopause stand a greater risk of being anemic if they don't eat right. Researchers from the University of Arizona studied data from more than 70-thousand older American women and found a link between anemia and poor nutrition. The women who didn't get enough folate, vitamin B-12, vitamin C, iron and red meat were more than 20% more likely to become anemic than women who ate a nutrient-rich diet. The study also found that older white women were half as likely as their African-American and Hispanic peers to have problems with their nutrition levels.
