Abstract

Iron is essential for oxygen transport, oxidative metabolism, and cellular growth. Interactions between iron and other dietary factors play a significant role in determining the adequacy of iron nutrition and have important implications for food fortification in developing countries. Vitamin A and vitamin C deficiency states may affect iron transport, metabolism, and storage within the body.
