The article discusses research on the risk for iron overload-related disease of men who are C282Y homozygotes. It references a study published in a 2008 issue of the "New England Journal of Medicine." The risk for iron overload-related diseases in C282Y homozygotes was analyzed by researchers by examining 31,192 patients of northern European descent, aged 40 to 69 years old. It found that 28.4% of men homozygous for C282Y developed iron overload-related disease.
