Iron Deficiency's Long-Term Effects: An Interview with Pediatrician Betsy Lozoff
National Scientific Council on the Developing Child
Betsy Lozoff is among the world's leading experts on iron deficiency and its effects on infant brain development and behavior. Iron deficiency is the most common single nutrient disorder in the world, affecting more than half of the world's infants and young children. Research by Lozoff and others has shown that there are long-lasting developmental disadvantages among children who experienced severe, chronic iron deficiency as infants--disadvantages that are not corrected by giving iron later. [The interviewer for this report was Dorian Friedman.]
