So the human body can be pretty stupid sometimes.

The body needs iron to function properly, it stores it in a molecule called ‘Ferritin’, now here is where stupid comes in…

~~~

“Hemosiderin
– If capacity of storage of iron in ferritin is exceeded, a complex of iron with phosphate and hydroxide forms called Hemosiderin
– If burden of iron increases beyond normal levels, hemosiderin can be deposited in the liver and heart, this can reach a point where function in these organs becomes impaired and death ensues.”

Why would you….
This is like a guy living in a closed box that likes money so much he decides to throw away all his food to fill his fridge with money and then proceed to block all air holes in the room with money.
I dont even.
Why do mechanisms like this exist? 😐
