How can something so
Delicious be so bad for
My iron level?

Crap. I went to donate blood today, and I was told that my iron level was too low for me to do it safely. A total bummer. I'm a little suspicious of their newfangled California hemoglobin machine, especially since it registered a 10% jump in my iron level between the two tries within 10 minutes, but, nevertheless, I wasn't allowed to give blood.

The culprit? Tea. Did you know that tea has tannins that prevent your body from absorbing iron? Hmm. I'll have to cut back before next time, I guess. ;____;
