How can wheatgrass chelate iron if it contains iron and fixes iron deficiencies in the blood?

How can wheatgrass chelate iron if it contains iron and fixes iron deficiencies in the blood?

Chelating separate: The chelating function of wheatgrass is a separate property from it also having iron. 1 ounce of wheatgrass has about 10% of the daily allowance of iron but it is proven to chelate iron. I don't know if the mechanism is entirely known, but wheatgrass is rich in chlorophyll and if you trade the atom of magnesium at the core of a chlorophyll molecule for an iron molecule it becomes hemoglobin. ...Read more

Anemia found on labs.  Iron serum: 21 Iron Saturation: 4, Ferritin: 3.  Very heavy periods, and hadn't been taking iron.  Blood transfusion needed?

How do you FEEL?: I'm glad this was recognized in time. You'll need a transfusion only if you're seriously symptomatic and can't last long enough to have your stores rebuilt by supplements. Please comply. Your best source of iron is red meat. Iron in spinach is bound to an acid that makes it not absorbable and broccoli as a wonderful source of iron is a myth made up by vegetarians. Good luck and be discerning. ...Read more

Well, thing is i was emptying out the fluid from my lighter and then i smeeled something awful(butane) and it can kill me. Im scared. :'(?

Won't kill you: Butane smells nasty but it won't kill you and a whiff won't endanger your health. Neither will any of the other hydrocarbons used for burning. The really dangerous chemicals are kept under pretty good control. If you use the lighter for smoking tobacco, perhaps this would be a great time to think about getting help with quitting. You're in your prime & deserve to give yourself the best. ...Read more

The flatulence, contain methane gas and butane gas, or only methane?

The flatulence, contain methane gas and butane gas, or only methane?

No butane. Only 20%: Of people produce methane. 99% of the gas volume does not smell. More recent evidence proves that the major contribution to the smell of flatus comes from a combination of volatile sulphur compounds (vsc).[5][12] it is known that hydrogen sulphide (h2s), methyl mercaptan, mm (also known as methanethiol, mt), dimethyl sulphide (dms), dimethyl disulphide (dmds) and dimethyl trisulphide (dmts) are present and cause the smell.Those compounds are the one percent that cause the smell.

5 weeks pregnant.  Inhaled on accident toluene, acetone, xylene, propane, butane in 5 breaths. Got a little on finger. Scared about birth defects now.

Stop worrying: The vast majority of birth defects are probably no more common in this era of widespread chemical exposure than they were centuries ago. A healthy concern for your new baby and a dysfunctional tort system has generated unrealistic concerns such as what you express. You make acetone in your body, and the others are basically inert. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Don't let "toxic fear" ruin it. ...Read more
