Six years ago, the Canadian Dr. Christopher Charles went on a trip to Cambodia, where he noticed that people, both children, and adults suffering from anemia, accusing violent pain of the head, which gave him the idea to invent a Fishy iron healer.
According to Bright Side, the iron fish patented by Christopher provides 75 % of daily iron dose recommended by doctors for an adult, which would be of greater benefit to anemic people worldwide.
Over 2 billion people around the globe suffer from anemia or iron deficiency, which in extreme cases can be fatal.
This fairly common nutrition problem can be countered by medication, but it is often unavailable or too expensive for the majority.
According to the doctor, the fish should be boiled in water, broth or soup for at least 10 minutes for it to take effect.
The invention can be used for a number of years.
Over 50% of Cambodians who used iron in cooking fish were no longer anemic after 12 months of use.
The doctor does not plan to stop here. He believes that his product shape can be adjusted depending on the country to be suitable for other developing countries .
