If magnets attract iron, then why don't we get attracted toward it when we eat green leafy vegetables that contain iron?

When we eat green leafy vegetables that contain iron, we also get iron but it is present in very less amount (100 gram of spinach contains 1.14 mg of iron). Iron is dissolved in all of the blood of our whole body, which contains about 2.5 grams of iron (about the weight of a single penny or coin). It helps in oxygen transportation in our body.

The iron present in the blood is diffused into particle form which is too small to be attracted by the magnet. Thus we don't get attracted towards the magnet.
