Does your blood smell really metallic?

I'm not sure if it's just because I'm older now or what but I never remembered my blood smelling or tasting as metallic when I was younger. Now if I put blood right next to my nose, it smells really strongly or rusted iron. Is this normal?

Are you a fucking moron? A huge part of your blood content is iron, which is why it smells the way it does.

A pint of blood has roughly 250mg of iron, provided you are a healthy, average height and weight male.

"rusted iron" is basically what carries oxygen around in your bloodstream. Hemoglobin is an iron oxide protein complex.

Sorry that is NOT normal. It is considered a key indicator of stage 4 leukemia or lymphoma. You have cancer and months if not weeks to live.

Did you read the OP?
Question is still valid.

Are you a fucking moron?

What kind of stupid ass thread are you making asking if our blood smells metallic? Who goes around smelling or tasting their blood on purpose?

Seriously, think before you create another pointless thread. All you ever seem to do is just post whatever the heck is on your mind at any given moment.

You probably could have gone on your 1st date ever by now if you spent less time making threads like this.
