Is iron in our bodies different than the metal?

    The iron in our bodies is the same as the iron found elsewhere. It is the most common element on Earth and it forms much of the Earth’s outer and inner core. It is found in humans, as your question suggests, as well as plants and animals.

    In fact, a perfect example of how it is the same is cooking in cast iron skillets.  Studies show that if you cook food (especially foods high in moisture and/or acid like spaghetti sauce and applesauce) in a cast iron pan the food absorbs iron from the pan and and your body absorbs the iron from the food.  Check out a chart of the iron contents of food without and without the use of an iron skillet in the link below.
