Sickle cell anemia

Anemia is a sickness that happens when you have reduced amounts of red blood cells in your veins.

Anemia is caused when you do not eat enough food with iron and vitamin B12. Almost ¼ of the population of the world suffers from Anemia.

A few symptoms of anemia are unusual tiredness, headaches, heart palpitations, dry and damaged hair and skin, unusual craving for inedible things (paper, clay, dirt, etc.), etc.

As a wise old man living in a cave for all his life once said: “A healthy diet to avoid anemia is one consisting of eggs in the morning, meat at lunch, and peanut butter at the end of the day.” 👍
