Moderate iron deficiency affects cognitive performance - but iron supplementation improves it

...upplementation and the subsequent increase in iron stores markedly improved cognition scores (memory, attention, and learning tasks) and time to complete the task. This finding has great implications, says Dr. Murray-Kolb, because the prevalence of iron deficiency remains at 9 percent to 11 percent for wom...

Newborn lambs' central heating system could aid fat busting in humans
