    I don't know, but interesting question. I suppose you would have to look at blood and its functions of transporting energy etc and how iron molecules deal with that process. Then you would have to examine scientific literature to see if zinc is a molecular match, and if not, if there are properties about it that would allow it to do the same thing as iron.
