A small group of Cambodians – some of whom only recently learned to swim – is doing zero-visibility dives to rid the country’s waters of bombs. Photographer Charles Fox has documented their journey in an incredible new photo series that beautifully captures these unexploded ordnance divers trying to make their nation a safer place.
I have the dubious honour of having lived with both anæmia and comorbid hypothyroidism for almost a decade: at my very worst, I need 12 hours of sleep a day, have difficulty concentrating, bouts of tinnitus, tachycardia, restless legs, constant thirst, and chronic circulatory problems. These symptoms largely abate when I supplement my diet with heme iron (Fe2+) and vitamin b12, and eat meat regularly.
I blame a combination of poor childhood nutrition, genetics, and a copper IUD for my condition; I’m lucky enough to live in a place where I can easily get supplements when my health takes a turn for the worse.
Knowing how disabling anæmia can be, it breaks my heart to know there are people, mostly women and children, trying to get by day to day while constantly feeling like they are about to pass out from a lack of the normal oxygen delivery the blood is supposed to provide.
Over 3.5 billion people worldwide suffer from iron deficiency, a
Anæmics often simply need more iron in their diets: preferably rapidly-absorbed heme iron, which is only found in meat, fish, and poultry.
However, cooking in a cast-iron pan is a common remedy as well, because some of the iron from the vessel leaches into the food. For this reason, I think the Lucky Iron Fish™ is a brilliant idea.
The Lucky Iron Fish™ is a simple and effective
health innovation that can provide you with 75% of your daily required
iron intake. All you have to do is cook with it.
Just boil it for 10 minutes in liquid and broth based meals like soup,
stews or in drinking water. For maximum effect use a bit of lemon juice
as the acidity helps extract the iron.
This simple cooking tool can provide entire families with up to 75% of
their daily required iron intake - improving everything from energy
levels to cognitive function. A little Fish can go a long way!
