True or false: iron in hemoglobin molecules which are found inside of red blood cells give human blood its red color? Pleaseeeee help. Thanks
Both!: The iron is part of the hemoglobin, so if the hemoglobin is red, then the iron has a role in making it red. Without the iron, who knows what color the substance would be, but then it wouldn't be hemoglobin anymore. On the other hand, hemoglobin bound to oxygen appears as a red color.

Nails are turning blue which i hear is due to low oxygen in blood cells. Can lack of physical activity & outside air cause this?
Probably not: Blue nails can be from poor perfusion due to vascular disease, low oxygen (hypoxia), or from toxins such as methemoglobenemia.
