Health and Human Development - Iron

Iron

Essential for the processes by which cells produce energy (energy
metabolism); forms part of haemoglobin (in blood), which carries oxygen in
the body and myoglobin [1] (in muscles), which makes oxygen available for
muscle contraction.

Reduced resistance to infections, lethargy, [2] fatigue, reduced learning
ability, lack of attention and impaired cognitive function in children.

Rare in developed world but known in parts of Africa, where village people
cook in iron pots.

Red meat is the most concentrated and readily absorbable form. Smaller
amounts are found in fish, chicken, eggs, legumes [3] and dried fruits.

Try looking up resources that are more specific, such as nutrition texts
that include chapters on each stage of the life span.
