Summary

Anemias resulting from nutritional factors constitute the largest nutrition health problem affecting populations in both developed and developing nations. Nutritional Anemias examines these anemias in detail and offers a balanced approach that includes current research findings on the etiology and consequences of this important problem.

This authoritative contribution discusses intervention strategies, namely fortification, food-based strategies, and control of helminth infection in the prevention of nutritional anemia. It also examines supplementation: the problems of compliance with iron during pregnancy, benefits of weekly vs. daily use, and multinutrients.

With a critical review and analysis of successes and
failures, Nutritional Anemias includes lessons learned from past
and ongoing programs as well as current controversies. This new
reference is a timely and valuable resource.
