    debatable but i feel diet impacts RBC. for example i do not eat meat (or fish) at all and havent had high RBC (or atleast not very far out of range to make big concern. nore have i ever donated blood or drained it myself.
    I feel it could be genetics along with diet, not just the compounds used.
    but again just theory based on personal exp.

    That's wild, I don't think I could live without my meat. What do you eat then?

    I dont think RBC are connected directly to the bodies ironstore.
    Only if the store is too empty.
    MrBb knows this. Hope i dials in.
