  1. Haematological nutrition of schoolchildren in the far Northwestern Cape.

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of anaemia and deficiencies of iron, folate and vitamin B12 were investigated in primary schoolchildren of mixed ethnic origin living in four towns in a remote semi-desert area of southern Africa, the Richtersveld.

    Anaemia was uncommon (6.3%); iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies were not observed.

    Sub-normal erythrocyte folate concentrations were present in 14.5%, but significant folate deficiency was rare (<2%).
