Anemia is when you don’t have enough red blood cells. It can be brought on by an iron deficiency, a vitamin B12 deficiency, or a folic acid deficiency.
For iron deficiency, eat beef, beef liver, pumpkin seeds, bran, blackstrap molasses, spinach, food high in vitamin C, and drink no more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day.
This is another one of those cases where people who drink 1-2 drinks a day have a lower risk than those who don’t drink; but more than 2 drinks a day has the opposite effect.
For folic acid deficiency â€“ eat chicken, beef liver, chickpeas, pinto beans, lima beans, spinach.
