Low zinc and copper levels associated with miscarriages

Low levels of zinc and copper are associated with miscarriages in pregnant women, Digital Journal reports.

Scientists at the University of Granada compared data from two groups of women —  one half having suffered miscarriages and the other half who had normal pregnancies — and found lower levels of zinc and copper in the women who had miscarriages, suggesting a deficiency of one or both trace elements could be involved.

The complication affects up to 15% of pregnant women, the researchers claimed.
