There is no cause for alarm. Heme and non-heme refer to absorbability, not quality of iron. Iron absorption depends in part on its source. Iron occurs in two forms in food. Heme iron is found in foods derived from animals, such as red meat, poultry and fish. Then there is non-heme iron, which is found in both plant-derived and animal-derived foods. On average, 10 percent of the iron a non-vegetarian person consumes is heme iron. The body absorbs heme iron very well — it absorbs 23 percent of it. Between 2 percent and 20 percent of non-heme iron is absorbed, depending on dietary factors and the body’s iron stores.

Yet one gets the distinct impression that Dworkin—much like Mary Daly, another old-school provocateur—has outstayed her welcome: to the postmodern crowd Dworkin must seem so vulgar, so retardataire.
In the field of electromagnetism, opposites attract. But are there laws that apply to attraction between people? The world is full of strangers, so is there a guaranteed way of making two people be attracted to each other? Can attraction be chalked up to pure chemistry? Possibly. Scientists say animals of different sexes are attracted to each other because of chemicals known as as pheromones. So far, they have mostly studied the behavior of insects in regards to pheromones. In some experiments, it has been noted that pheromones enhance communication within a species such as ants. The terrible aroma unleashed by skunks to deflect adversaries is believed to be a type of pheromone. There are types of apes that rub[…]
