In brief: Can you clarify?
Most folks can get away with an iron-rich diet without any problems; the body simply doesn't absorb more than it needs.
Some folks absorb the stuff too well and get iron-overloaded (hemochromatosis), which is miserable (impotence, joint pain, liver failure and more) but the easiest of all the deadly diseases to manage. Hope this helps.
