    The disease, sickle-cell anaemia, is caused by:

    A)  Malarial infection

    B)  Iron deficiency

    C)  Poor hygiene    

    D)  none of these

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

     Sickle-cell disease (SCD), also known as sickle-cell anaemia (SCA), is a hereditary blood disorder, caused by an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin found in red blood cells. This leads to a propensity for the cells to assume an abnormal, rigid sickle-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickle-cell disease is associated with a number of acute and chronic health problems, such as severe infections, attacks of severe pain ("sickle-cell crisis"), stroke, and an increased risk of death.
