Healthy Geezer: Iron in diet

Friday, September 20, 2019 by FRED CICETTI in Focus

Q. How should I change my diet to get more iron? I think I’m a little anemic.

Iron deficiency anemia is the most common form of anemia. About 20 percent of women, 50 percent of pregnant women, and 3 percent of men do not have enough iron in their bodies.

If you have anemia, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body. The most common cause of anemia is iron deficiency.

You need iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin carries the oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body.

Movie Review: ‘It” takes two; too long

Friday, September 20, 2019 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

It is a very long chapter.

At nearly three-hours-long, “It Chapter Two” makes the case for more than one sequel. This is one case where two sequels would have been better than one.

At least each sequel would have probably been shorter.

“It Chapter Two” returns us to the fictional Derry, Me., 27 years later. The impetus is a pact made by The Losers Club, when they were pre-teens, to return to Derry if Pennywise, the killer clown, ever returns to his malevolent ways.

He does.

And they do.
