Iron supplements can cause blakish brown stools. But if the stools are tarry fowl smelling and jet black it indicates melena. Consult gastroenterologist in your area.

Your temperature is well within the normal range. I however suggest that you go for counseling too and learn some skills to handle anxiety, which is a fear based reaction. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: the former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality development course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Can beef jerky cause cancer? Because I want to eat it for gym. I saw that it contains a lot of protein!

Beef is a very good dietary source of protein, iron, zinc, copper and b-vitamins. Beef also contains conjugated linoleic acid (cla) and stearate, both of which have been shown to induce cancer cell death, including breast cancer apoptosis. However, the potentially favorable effects of cla and stearate appear to be overwhelmed by beef's high level of saturated fat and the carcinogenic effects of naturally-occurring beef compounds, beef additives and beef preparation methods. Diets high in beef or well done beef have been linked in multiple population studies to higher risks of leukemia and cancers of the esophagus, lung, stomach, pancreas, kidney, bladder, intestine, colon, rectum, endometrium, testis and prostate. While beef fat may be responsible for some of these results, restricting consumption to lean beef would not eliminate the increased risks of most of these cancers. I hope the information is helpful for you, if not then you may need to discuss your concern in detail over a call or a video conferencing as per your convenience.

You need to check your haemoglobin, serum calcium and vit d3 levels. If these levels are low only then you should take medicines. Iron is not routinely given unless you have anemia. Even routine multivitamins are not recommended if you are taking proper and well balanced diet. Do the investigations and consult a physician for further management.
