In this interview, Morley explains the relationships between iron and copper and how they influence Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone.

Here are the highlights:

  • Most people (including cycling women) have toxic levels of unbound iron – most especially men and postmenopausal women
  • No such thing as iron deficient anemia, only lack bioavailable copper
  • Glyphosate, high fructose corn syrup, sorbitol and fourth generation antibiotics all prevent copper absorption
  • Iron is the most abundant element on earth
  • Top 3 most oxidative elements on earth are Fluorine, Oxygen, Iron
  • We accumulate 1mg/day every day we’re alive
  • Oxidative stress, glycation, and iron accumulation are the 3 top theories of aging
  • Iron causes oxidative stress and glycation (AGE)
  • The only way to get iron out is through blood loss via donation, phlebotomy, or menstruation
  • In 1941 FDA required iron to be added to grains and doubled it in 1969. This is seen as “enriched” or “fortified” in the ingredient list
  • We replace 2 trillion RBCs every day and only takes 25mgs to do this
  • 24 of the 25 mgs is recycled by the Reticuloendothelial System which is governed by Ceruloplasmin, a copper-dependent protein
  • Under stress, humans lose large amounts of magnesium
  • Sodium and Potassium are needed to make cortisol and adrenaline precursors
  • Emotional stress (cortisol) is severely disruptive to mineral balance and increases iron toxicity by lowering Ceruloplasmin
  • In men, if testosterone is too high (from TRT), iron accumulates in the prostate and causes cancer
  • If ceruloplasmin is low, estrogen will increase to provide backup antioxidant support
  • Progesterone is often low due to a deficiency in magnesium and B6, caused by stress
  • If ceruloplasmin is optimized, magnesium is optimized
  • Xenoestrogens unbind copper from ceruloplasmin taking the iron recycling system offline
