CARDERO REYES, Yusimy; SARMIENTO GONZALEZ, Rodolfo  y  SELVA CAPDESUNER, Ana. Importance of the iron and vitamin C consumption for the prevention of iron-deficiency anemia. MEDISAN [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.6. ISSN 1029-3019.

The iron deficiency has been pointed out as the most frequent cause of anemia in the world, both in countries with low level of development and in the highly industrialized ones. In Cuba, the iron-deficiency anemia constitutes a problem of health that affects fundamentally older infants, adolescents, women in fertile age and pregnant women. The specialized bibliography was reviewed from nutritional elements, balance and iron metabolism to sociocultural aspects that impact direct and indirectly on that condition. What was reviewed and compiled in this article stated rules for an educational intervention, during which the validity of specific actions was demonstrated to face the identified problem.
