Hemochromatosis - an inherited metabolic iron disorder - is one of modern medicine's greatest oversights. For people with metabolic iron disorders, controlling the intake of iron contributes to wellness and the prevention of such chronic diseases as:

- Heart disease
- Diabetes
- Arthritis
- Liver disease
- Impotence
- Depression

"The Hemochromatosis Cookbook" is written specifically for those who suffer from such iron disorders. It has chapters on all of the traditional categories found in most cookbooks: appetizers, salads, fruits and vegetables, main courses and casseroles, breads and muffins, and desserts.

In addition, "The Hemochromatosis Cookbook" provides:

- Easy-to-prepare, reasonably priced recipes that impede the body's absorption of iron
- Food values and tips suggesting substitutions for reduced fat, sodium, and sugar
- Helpful menu planning for busy schedules, cooking for company, or cooking for two
- Diet plans for a typical week, including meals that can be prepared ahead of time and frozen
- A shopping checklist with reminders about iron content
- A chart showing the iron contents of common foods and vitamin supplements
- A general explanation of iron imbalances, such as hereditary hemochromatosis, acquired iron overload, and anemia.
