Anemia and meat: No. Most people get sufficient iron from other sources. Young women can become anemic from heavy menstruation, but young men generally do not become anemic whether they eat red meat or do not.

Adult leukemia: All adult leukemia is treatable. How likely it is to be cured depends on the subtype of leukemia, acute myelogenous or acute lymphocytic, hairy cell or chronic myelogegnous or chronic lymphocytic. The treatment approach depends on the subtype. Each full sibling has a 1 in 4 chance of being a full hla match.

Lymph nodes: The most common cause of lymph node enlargement in the neck in a 17 year old is a viral illness. Large lymph nodes, which are greater than 2 cm in size and persist for weeks are less common. These can be seen with mononucleosis, some drug reactions and other more serious conditions. If the lymph nodes persist for 2 months and the test for mononucleosis is negative a biopsy should be done.
