Ironing Out an Attention Deficit
In a woman, it's a sign of poor diet
(HealthDayNews) -- If a man uses the television remote control to change channels every 30 seconds, it's considered normal. But if a woman does the same thing -- it may be a sign that she's dieting too much.
According to the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that when obese women diet, there can be a reduction in the absorption of iron, even when there's enough iron in the diet to meet all normal needs.
And the first casualty of iron deficiency in women is their attention span. It gets shorter. Much shorter.
