Iron deficiency anaemia

Friday, January 29, 2016

Almost one third of the world's population are anemic, mainly because of a lack of iron in their diet
Iron deficiency affects an estimated 1.6 to 2 billion people worldwide. It harms children’s physical and mental development, increases child mortality rates and reduces adult workplace productivity.
Iron helps create healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body. When you don’t get enough you feel weak and tired.
