Am I nuts or am I on the wrong track?
I have a thought I wanted to run by you. I have no clue if I am on to something, or it’s not valid.
My gut tells me that men die most of the time before women because they accumulate excess unbound iron and hold on to it for many more years than women. Women may hold on to that iron, but more so only after menopause. So men say on a scale of 1 to 1000, men are ahead of women in the accumulation game and therefore have a higher degree of more health issues sooner than women as they age and therefore, the women live a longer life. But if men give blood often as the years go by, that may balance the difference. And as I recall you saying, people who give blood regularly generally live longer than ones who don’t. So, what say you Morley????? Am I nuts or am I on the wrong track?
