how much iron is there really in the body?

statement 1: Your body contains enough iron to make a spike strong enough to hold your weight.

statement 2: average human body contains enough: iron to make a 3 inch

So which of these statements is true?

i want to know total iron content of body includin hemoglobin and other iron containin enzymes
whether the above statements are true?

I am a medical doctor myself. so no nonsensical answers please…

It contains enough iron to make several 3 inches. What the heck is a 3 inch?

If wiki is to be beleived you do not have very much iron in your body. about 3 to 4 grams.

A paper clip is about 1 gram. I can unfold a paper clip into about a piece of wire about 3 inches long. So a three inch of iron does not seem out of the question. I can also imagine being able to hang from a 4 gram nail so the first could be true as well.

The average human body contains about 3 grams of iron. That’s a little heavier than a penny.
