Sceala Irish Craic Forum Discussion:     Irish Blood Iron excess and Cystic Fibrosis Irish Celtic

Talking of the blood of the Irish

Am I correct here?
The Irish curse or Celtic curse of too much iron in the blood.
And do the Irish not have a higher than typical cystic fibrosis, and has this not got some iron in the body and lungs connections.

I thought there was a post here on celtic curse, if so I can not find it!

Celtic curse

With greater awareness and compassion we can defeat hereditary hemochromatosis, the most common genetic killer in America. Although HHC is particularly prevalent in people of Celtic origin, you donít have to be Irish to be a victim of this widely under-diagnosed condition which causes crippling disabilities such as:
liver cancer,
diabetes,
congestive heart failure,
macular degeneration, and
osteoporosis

not to mention chronic joint pain, arrhythmia, hair loss, fatigue, infertility, impotence, and depression.

Although simple tests for hemochromatosis are available, too few doctors know when to order them, and if it is not detected early, the buildup of iron in the victimís body caused by hemochromatosis can inflict serious damage on vital organs.

As a direct result of the lack of screening for, and awareness of, this insidious condition, each year many thousands of people are condemned to a life of pain, suffering, and disability. Fortunately, the three main weapons in the fight against Celtic Curse are not exotic.

Detection of the condition: simple and not costly.
Treatment of the condition: practically free (blood donation).
Awareness and education: needs work.

#3 is what this site is all about, spreading the word. The more people know, the more lives will be saved, from premature death and needless suffering.

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease that primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system.
Ireland has the highest incidence of Cystic Fibrosis in the world. Approximately 1 in 19 Irish people are said to 'carry' one copy of the altered gene that causes Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis is Ireland's most common genetically inherited disease. With 1100+ CF Patients, Ireland has the highest proportion of CF people in the world.

CF Ireland was established by a small dedicated group of parents in 1963 with the first meeting in Crumlin Children's Hospital. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the Association.


Wondering now if the Irish have the answer to these illness, if they, Celtic curse and cystic fibrosis are somehow linked?
Never heard anyone connect the two, but maybe there is some link.
