I read a scifi story years ago that I would like to re-read but can't remember the title. Please post if you remember a story about the similarity between the iron-centric organometallic hemoglobin for animals and the magnesium-centric organometallic chlorophyl for plants. I believe that in the story characters who ate a certain meaty fruit experienced some sort of conversion to part animal, part plant physiology. Sounds terrible, I know, but it actually was a very interesting tale. I think it was a short story by one of the well-known authors. Thanks
