The fact that anemias constitute an important problem of public health has been realized only comparatively recently. When field surveys made in different countries before and after World War II had collected a great deal of information on dietary habits, food consumption levels, and nutritional status , it became more apparent that mild, moderate, and even severe anemic states existed in different communities. As was to be expected, anemia occurred more frequently in the malnourished people in the developing countries and the vulnerable groups of the population were the most affected (FAO/WHO Report, 1966).
