How Hazardous is Eating Rust?
I was wondering, thanks.
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh not at all.
Well you have iron in your system, but I still wouldn't eat a lot of it.
Well, it'd probably cut up your throat when you swallowed it, and do the same to your intestines, but it's just oxidized iron, so I can't imagine it'd be that harmful chemistry-wise.
"Rust in drinking water can be caused by corrosion in the pipes that carry the water from the treatment plant to your home or corrosion in your homeâ€™s plumbing, including the hot water heater. Rust is not dangerous in terms of health but it can stain laundry."
Did you eat the stuff or drink rusty water?
It could actually be good for you, if you don't normally eat alot of red meat.
Well, I was using a cooking utensil and it had a rusty nail and some might have fallen into the food. I don't like to waste food, so I ate it, it tasted pretty good. Thanks for the information.
That sort of amount won't be harmful, especially if it fell into some heated food . . . I was thinking along the lines of "I licked a rusty door hinge" and I believe the bigger danger there would be germs living on the surface than the surface substance itself.
Iron helps us play!
As long as you stay away from powerful magnets you should be ok.

Anyone else think this thread was going to be BS, given the topic starter's name?
*listens to the crickets chirp*
This is one of the oddest thread I have seen......luckily you have a good reason to ask it
The guys afraid. Let him ask. If I just ate 800 lbs. of beef i would probably ask what are the chances of me getting MCD.
rust is even better when used to make a thermite grenade!
I don't mind the question. When I read the first post, I thought they were trying to pull a joke on us since I was thinking they were eating huge sheets of rust off a car or something. When it turned out to be little flakes off a rusty nail, I just had to chuckle at myself.
Meh...i think its only bad when you step on taht rusty nail...
Though i wouldnt suggest making a habit of eatin that rust
Really? I was thinking more along the lines of, "I was walking along and I got hungry, so I snacked on an old car."
I think my brother almost swallowed a Hot Wheels car once, if that counts.
The ironing is delicious.
It goes great with a side of paint chips.
