its about "Nature’s most effective iron-chelating molecule is inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), found naturally in seeds and bran" But another important statement is in the last paragraph..."The National Cancer Institute (NCI) only makes brief mention of IP6 as "a substance found in many foods that come from plants, including corn, wheat, rice, and soybeans, and in large amounts in cereals and legumes. It is being studied in the prevention of cancer."
Point is the vegan diet consists of cancer fighting substances. What has meat done for you? (rhetorical question not meant to any of the vegans since we already know the answer)
