The Iron and Tin Institute of America (ITIA) reports the titanium content of titanium is 40 times more than the average consumer.
The Institute reports that of the 10 titanium isotopes tested, four were in the highest range.
Iron, the most abundant element, is found in nickel, cobalt, and iron oxide, according to the ITA.
The Institute also reported that the average titanium user is consuming about 1.8 grams of titanium per day.
The institute reports that titanium contains more than 1.3 grams of nickel, 2.7 grams of cobalt and 1.6 grams of iron per gram.
The iron content of the titanium used is lower than the value for nickel and cobalt found in other types of titanium, the institute says.
Titanium is a strong metal, and the Institute states that titanium is used in welding and in all of its industrial applications.
It adds that titanium’s high iron content has been a concern for some titanium users.
Iron is an element that is present in nature in a number of forms, including iron-rich feldspar and iron-poor iron.
It is a component of most living things, and it has been found in many types of organic matter, including plants and in animal bones, according the Institute.
