    No, it's not too high. Although the RDI for adult men and women is 8-18mg/day (18mg/day for females aged 19-50 years; 8mg/day for men aged 19-70+ and females over 50 years) (FNB:IOB, 2001), the upper intake of Iron for men and women aged 19-50 years old is 45 mg/day (Frykman, Bystron, Jansson, Edberg & Hansen, 1994) before it starts becoming toxic.

    Absorption of iron is ~18% from a mixed western diet and only ~10% from a vegetarian diet, so vegetarians' iron intakes need to be 80% higher than non-vegetarians (NHMRC, 2005).

    The above is true of Australia and New Zealand; it may be different in the US.

    Just because you "look pale" does not mean that you are anaemic.

    Also, there are different types of anaemia and NOT all of them you "treat" by giving iron supplementation. The ONLY anaemia you treat with iron is iron deficiency anaemia. If you do it with any of the others you can cause an iron toxicity in the body, which can be fatal.
