- ... Background: Lead is a common neurotoxicant and its absorption may be increased in iron deficiency (ID). Thus, iron fortification to prevent ID in populations is a promising lead mitigation strategy. Two common fortificants are ferrous sulfate (FeSO₄) and ferric sodium EDTA (NaFeEDTA). EDTA can chelate iron and lead. Objectives: Our study objective was to determine the effects of iron and EDTA, alo ...

- ... Background: Food fortification is one approach for addressing anemia, but information on program effectiveness is limited.Objective: We evaluated the impact of Costa Rica's fortification program on anemia in women aged 15–45 y and children aged 1–7 y.Design: Reduced iron, an ineffective fortificant, was replaced by ferrous fumarate in wheat flour in 2002, and ferrous bisglycinate was added to maiz ...
