Hemochromatosis - an inherited metabolic iron disorder - is one of modern medicine's greatest oversights. For people with metabolic iron disorders, controlling the intake of iron contributes to wellness and the prevention of such chronic diseases as:
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Liver disease
  • Impotence
  • Depression

The Hemochromatosis Cookbook is written specifically for those who suffer from such iron disorders. It has chapters on all of the traditional categories found in most cookbooks: appetizers, salads, fruits and vegetables, main courses and casseroles, breads and muffins, and desserts.

In addition, The Hemochromatosis Cookbook provides:

  • Easy-to-prepare, reasonably priced recipes that impede the body's absorption of iron
  • Food values and tips suggesting substitutions for reduced fat, sodium, and sugar
  • Helpful menu planning for busy schedules, cooking for company, or cooking for two

  • A shopping checklist with reminders about iron content
  • A chart showing the iron contents of common foods and vitamin supplements
