Iron deficiency: causes, consequences, and strategies to overcome this nutritional problem

Iron deficiency: causes, consequences, and strategies to overcome this nutritional problem

Biological Trace Element Research 94(1): 1-32

Iron deficiency and anemia affect a substantial portion of the world's population, provoking severe health problems to the people suffering these conditions, as well as important economic losses to the regions in which this nutritional deficiency is significant. In this work, the principal causes and consequences produced by this deficiency are discussed, as well as the different strategies that can be applied in order to prevent and solve this nutritional problem.
