“Giving The Middle Finger To Hemochromatosis”
Iron Overload Disease has screwed over so many good people around the world. It’s taken lives and ruined futures and it causes so much chromic illnesses, and often without warning. 3 million with HH and 15 million carriers who can and do load iron in the USA alone. The disease poisons your organs and tissues by storing excess iron. which can lead to liver failure, heart attacks, cirrhosis, Alzheimers, arthritis, and a host of cancers. Average diagnosis takes 10 years, 75 percent don’t feel symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial.
Joe Kurmaskie, the founder of ironitout.org will be joined all month by his favorite singers, actors, scientists, teachers and more to help tell the most common deadly genetic disease in the world – orphaned, marginalized and ignored for two decades – where it can stick it! (disclaimer: these are public domain, unaltered meme style images of public figures, not to be mistaken for formal endorsements. That said, we think many of them would be hip to the cause, so if they want to get in touch… )
For anyone who might consider this in any way offensive, just consider how offensive it is that simple blood tests to detect this disease were taken off the routine panels nationwide to save money… at the cost of countless lives!
