How much?[edit]

How much is "excess" what is the lethal dosage? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:31, 31 October 2007 (UTC)


It says in the article" "Toxic effects start ... above 20-30 mg/kg". What kgs? Of a body weight? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:42, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

The article doesn't make sense. First it says that "Ingestions of more than 50 mg/kg of elemental iron are associated with severe toxicity"

Then right after that it says that the standard pill of "325 mg has 65 mg/kg of elemental iron" — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:16, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
