BC,

Anemias and excess ingestion can cause iron overload:

http://www.irondisorders.org/disorders/sba/
"Acquired sideroblastic anemia is due to prolonged exposure to toxins like alcohol, lead, drugs or nutritional imbalances such as deficiency in folic acid, deficiency in copper or excess zinc. Other causes are due to disease such as inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, cancerous conditions such as leukemia, lymphoma; kidney disorders causing uremia; endocrine disorders such as hyperthyroidism; metabolic disorders such as porphyria cutanea tarda. Acquired SA is usually seen in patients over 65 year of age but it can be present as early as mid to late fifties."
