True or false: iron in hemoglobin molecules which are found inside of red blood cells give human blood its red color? Pleaseeeee help. Thanks

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. Hemoglobin without oxygen appears as bluish purplish, which is why well-oxygenated blood is quite red. ...Read more

If acetaldehyde(listed as a group 1 carcinogen) occurs naturally in bread and coffee, does this mean bread and coffee are carcinogenic? Very confused

Exactly!: What's that telling you! Don't believe everything you read!

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. Deconditioning (lack of activity) may be a symptom of low oxygen and not a cause. Outside versus inside air have the same oxygen content. I would advise you see an md to do a workup for anemia, oxygen levels, and vascular disease. ...Read more
