While many studies show reduced work output in heavy labour with poor nutritional status, data among less-physically-strenuous industrial occupations is scarce. In the present study the output of ninety-two women jute-factory workers over a 1-month period was measured together with haemoglobin, BMI, arm muscle and fat area, physical work capacity (maximum O2 consumption; VO2max), as well as socio-economic, health and activity variables. A significant correlation was found between haemoglobin… CONTINUE READING
