I don't mean to nitpick, the video is great. But I thought you'd want to make a correction if the number is wrong. Or maybe I misunderstood something? In which case, I'd like to understand what I got wrong. :)
Thanks a lot for the vids! They're the best I've ever found. I continue to recommend them to my classmates.
You are correct about how we need about 1-2mg of iron per day. Like what Bryan said, we intake, throughout the day, a total of about 10-20mg of dietary iron but able to absorb ~10% of it. But this goes a little more complex as this video talks about how iron within +3 state (non-heme iron) gets absorbed, but in reality, iron in the +2 state (heme-iron, which comes mostly from meat sources) can also get absorbed into the enterocytes but through a different mechanism. Heme-iron is more easily absorbed than non-heme iron.
Iron metabolism is tightly regulated as there's no metabolic process in where lots of iron can be excreted from the body unless it's through bleeding, pregnancy, or menstruation (ones I can name right now) in comparison to other trace minerals that do have a metabolic exit. Most of the iron within our body get's recycled daily anyways (about 25mg) so there's no need for much iron absorption, on a normal average case.
The more I listen, the crazier she seems. You had good questions - FAIR questions - and she just doesn't answer them. And no, people aren't giving her a hard time because of porn. (????) Just wow.
Don't forget that former Witnesses are said to be "one with the antichrist" and "mentally diseased" by the Watchtower Society. Other religions are seen as not only false religions, but demonically inspired. And the world, which is run by Satan and his demons, is out to get them. That means you and me could be used by Satan to corrupt them. They also live in fear of the day when the government will crack down on them and start locking them away. (Of course, it's assumed this will happen shortly before Armageddon.)
Also worth mentioning, blood transfusions aren't just about saving lives. They can be used as treatments for serious problems like severe anemia. I know a JW who spends much of his life in a wheelchair because just walking around will make him pass out. Why? He's anemic due to cancer and there's no other way to treat his condition. He's in his 80s and has a heart condition as well.
Thanks again. :)
I spent part of the movie just watching her reactions. She had her hands in front of her face as if she was praying most of the time. She laughed, almost cried out a few times. She loved it. So did I.
Some who saw it don't quite get that this is a story being told visually and think it has no story. Today, movies are often overloaded with dialogue and fans are used to having the movie explained to them. It has a story, but Miller just lets you experience it without reams of exposition.
