Default Anybody tracking IRON?

I just started tracking my RDA's. My iron has been over 8.0 mg. on most days. I've been reading about the dangers of getting too much iron, and to my only advantage I take a baby aspirin daily.

Usually it's around 10-12 mg./day, but yesterday I hit 22 mg!

Anyone else out there tracking this heavy metal and what suggestions do you have for keeping it reasonable?


PS: While I fixed my lack of Mg yesterday by eating a quarter cup of pumpkin seeds, I also got a whopping 47% iron with it.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
