Large expansion & restruc in biology and med
Recently, the article has been expandeed and restructured wrt == sections Aapplication, Biological role, Soil remediation, Precautions. Mostly by Doc James and Sepi333. See also previous talk #Split biology?.
As it stands now, I think the TOC shows that these topics (and their subsections) show repetition or being split over multiple sections. It also indicates that there may be too much detail. If large protion of medicine/bio aspects are to be included (limit? off-topic?), at least the top sections should be complete and non-repetitive. Say: Application, Biological, [Human?] Health/Medicine only. -DePiep (talk) 09:24, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

Adding the NFPA Label
Maybe somebody should add the NFPA fire diamond somewhere in the toxicity section. The fire diamond also appeared on the iron article, so maybe someone should add it to this article too.
