Hello, my name is Jimin. I got my blood test report today & in my results, I had iron deficiency anemia.
I asked the doctor, "How is it possible to eat metal?" He said, "Iron is also present in your food."
There are two types of iron, heme and. non-heme. Heme iron is present in meats and non-heme iron is present in plants and grains/beans.
He also said, "Iron carries oxygen from our lungs to all parts of our body." Having iron deficiency is not good but having too much iron can also be toxic. This can result from overdosing on iron supplements, or a diet with an iron overload.
There is also plentiful of iron in our Earth's crust and core.
The most common ores of iron are hematite, limonite, magnetite, and siderite.
Iron is a metal element in the periodic table The atomic number is 26 and the atomic is 55.845 and the chemical symbol is Fe.
Iron is malleable which allows us to make tin cans out of it.
Iron is also used to make pot and pans because it is a lustrous metal.
Iron is also used to make fencing because it is ductile.
The melting point of iron is 1536 Celcius and boiling point is 3000 Celcius. Iron can be moulded and made into useful things like nails or a hammer.
Lastly, iron is a good conductor of heat and electricity. A clothing iron is a good example as it conducts heat to remove wrinkles.
As I said before, cookware is made out of iron. This is also because it is non-toxic.
Iron dissolves rapidly in hydrochloric acid,it will not dissolve in water but it wil rust quickly.
If iron combines with moist air or the presence of water it begins to rust which is called iron oxide.
