We would like to inform all readers a correction on the Spring 2015 edition of Pasadena Healthy Times. In the article "Childhood Lead Poisoning an Nutrition", Vitamin C, rather than calcium, can help a child's body absorb iron. Vitamin C foods include fruit juices, oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes, broccoli, kiwi, and strawberries. Additionally, foods high in calcium include cheese, milk, cooked spinach, canned salmon, yogurt, tofu, and dark leafy greens. Download the correct newsletter here.
