Zinc is an essential element for living organisms, forming part of many enzymes needed to sustain all forms of life. Imbalances and deficiencies in agricultural soils affect yields and may also cause problems throughout the food chain. Zinc deficiency, which weakens the immune system, is common in SubSaharan Africa and about 70% of the population has too low an intake of zinc; inadequate zinc intake is considered to be the cause of 20% of global child mortality, in parity with the mortality caused by vitamin A deficiency and malaria.
