Desiccated-liver supplements have been marketed as a source of iron for more than a century.

The supplements, sometimes called liver extract, usually contain dried cow's liver. * Uses: Desiccated liver is used in attempts to ease stress and anxiety, boost energy and performance during workouts, and, less commonly, treat arthritis.

There are only a few times in our lives when we are presented with a choice so big that it will assuredly shape the experiences of every generation to follow. A choice that holds sway over the smallest of details in our children's cherished memories, and that of our chldren's children. This, ladies and gentleman, is one of those times. So please, for our future's sake, don't vote for the iron. In what is the biggest choice facing American consumers since voting to replace the tan M&M with the blue one in 1995, Hasbro is asking Monopoly fans to vote to keep their favorite piece in the current set. The lowest vote-getter will go directly to Monopoly jail, never to return.

Iron deficiency is the world's most common nutritional deficiency -- as much as two-thirds of the global population may not be getting enough iron, according to the World Health Organization. Among Americans, iron deficiency is much less common, though it's a health risk faced by teen girls, pregnant or dieting women and endurance athletes.

Extra iron may help combat fatigue in women, even if they're not anemic, Swiss researchers have found. In a study of women who complained of being chronically tired -- all of whom were healthy and had normal hemoglobin levels -- researchers found that many had low-normal concentrations of ferritin in their blood. (Ferritin is an iron-storage protein that indicates how much iron is stored in the body.) The researchers randomly divided the 144 women, ranging in age from 18 to 55, into two groups.

Capping a fervent scientific competition, Bay Area researchers appear to have discovered the faulty gene that causes iron overload disease, a sometimes deadly affliction that often goes unnoticed even though it is among the nation's most common genetic disorders. About 1.5 million Americans, primarily whites of Northern European origin, have a pair of the faulty genes--a copy from each parent--according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Ironing. You have your two camps. You have your Creasers. You have your Wrinkletarians. Creasers are people who see the iron not as mere appliance, but as a divine instrument with which to do good. Creasers are people who iron from the inside out and the socks up, and view anything Sta-prest as not only icky, but just a tad un-American.

Don't get your hopes up, Marvel fans. The new Iron Man ride coming to Hong Kong Disneyland in 2016 won't be easily replicated at other Disney theme parks around the world. PHOTOS: Iron Man Experience at Hong Kong Disneyland The $100-million Iron Man Experience will be similar to Star Tours, a simulator ride based on another of Disney's tent-pole properties: Star Wars. Recent updates to the Star Tours attractions at Disneyland in California and Tokyo Disneyland in Japan mean Tony Stark won't be replacing Darth Vader anytime soon.

The co-founder of frozen yogurt chain Pinkberry was sentenced Friday to seven years in prison for beating a homeless man with a tire iron, an attack a Los Angeles judge declared "fairly merciless" and "horrendous. " Dressed in an orange, jail-issued jump suit, Young Lee stared straight ahead as Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Henry J. Hall handed down the maximum penalty the 49-year-old faced. A jury in November convicted Lee - who helped found Pinkberry in 2005 but is no longer involved with the company - of assault.

It's almost impossible to put down Jean Hanff Korelitz's riveting new novel for the first 200 pages as it dismantles the comfortable existence of a couples therapist over the course of a few nightmarish weeks. We first meet Grace Reinhart Sachs ensconced in her office, being interviewed by a Vogue writer about her forthcoming book, "You Should Have Known. " This book-within-a-book argues that women get themselves into bad marriages by failing to see the clear signs that were there from the beginning about their spouses' failings.

JERUSALEM - Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the iron-willed army general who fought in nearly all of his nation's major wars and spearheaded Jewish settlement of Palestinian territories, then years later presided over Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, died Saturday. He was 85. The controversial leader, who had been incapacitated since suffering a severe stroke in 2006, was moved in 2010 to his ranch in the Negev desert at the request of his family. In September he underwent abdominal surgery, but his condition worsened this month as his organs deteriorated.

Even the jaded, however, might not be prepared for the powerful images that adorn both the exterior and interior of the headquarters of Oakley Inc., the eye-wear manufacturer based in Foothill Ranch. The first view, from the parking lot, is of metal cones protruding horizontally from the walls.

California leads the nation in childhood deaths due to accidental poisoning from iron supplements, and most of those deaths have occurred in Southern California, state and UCI Medical Center officials said Thursday. In the past, poison deaths in children under age 6 were most often caused by over-the-counter pain relievers, said David Harden, an analyst at UC Irvine Medical Center's poison-control center.

Turn out the lights, the parity's over. The Bowl Championship Series era of equal access and catering to college football's "little guys" ended Monday night at the Rose Bowl when Florida State ended the Southeastern Conference's winning streak. The new playoff format will weed out the weak, make the big conferences richer and the small conferences poorer. Why do you think Chris Petersen finally left Boise State for Washington? There are exciting times ahead for everyone except the Sun Belt Conference and the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

Chris Davis' life changed the moment he completed one of the greatest plays in college football history. The Auburn senior rarely walks by a television without seeing a replay of his game-winning return for a touchdown of a field-goal attempt by Alabama in the Iron Bowl in November. Davis became an instant folk hero at Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium, which still might be shaking. He received a standing ovation in a geology class. He appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and is constantly posing for pictures and signing autographs as the Tigers prepare for Monday's Bowl Championship Series title game against Florida.
