Author: NURUL AMALIYAH, INDAH BUDIASTUTIK, REZZA DEWINTHA
Abstract: The unprotected drinking water sources can be contaminated by chemical contaminants such as iron and heavy metals (Hg). Iron and Hg levels that exceed the threshold can inhibit zinc absorption in the body, while zinc deficiency can inhibit physical growth and increases the severity of infectious diseases. The highest number of stunting cases in Sambas Regency was at the Teluk Keramat District, about 105 million. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of iron and Hg levels on drinking water sources to stunting at Teluk Keramat District, Sambas, West Kalimantan. The study method applied was observational analytic with case-control design from 40 samples with a case-control ratio of 1:1, the method to take samples is purposive sampling.
