    Bangladesh Study Provides Proof of Zinc’s Benefits

    A two-year, community-based trial in rural Bangladesh, which included 30 health worker areas and nearly 12,000 child years of observation, further proved that zinc supplementation is effective in the treatment of diarrhea. Children living in areas where zinc supplementation was recommended in conjunction with ORS therapy had a 23% shorter duration of diarrhea episodes than children living in areas where ORS therapy alone was the accepted treatment. The children living in zinc-supplemented areas also experienced a shorter duration of persistent diarrhea illness, fewer days of illness attributed to acute lower respiratory infections, and fewer hospitalizations.
