  1. Iron nutrition does not account for the hemoglobin differences between blacks and whites.

    Article - En anglais

    Many researchers have reported lower hemoglobin concentrations in blacks than in whites, but the reason for this difference is unknown.

    Data for 2515 persons (in 3-12 y and 18-45 y age groups) from the Second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES II) were evaluated to investigate the roles of iron intake and biochemical iron status indicators in explaining black and white differences in hemoglobin concentration.

    Dietary iron intake was estimated from one 24-h food recall, and hemoglobin, serum ferritin, transferrin saturation and erythrocyte protoporphyrin were measured by standard laboratory methods.
