In the control group the mean hemoglobin was 10.54 +- 1.31gm/dL, the mean, mean corpuscular volume was 71.65 +- 9.62, mean MCHC was 30.13 +- 3.00 and mean ferritin levels were 20.83 +- 15.10 ng/dL.
All other parameters such as total red blood cell (TRBC), packed cell volume, MCV, mean corpuscular Hb (MCH), and MCH concentration in anemic patients are lowered compared to control group which are statistically highly significant (P < 0.001).

There are previous studies, which have shown that heroin addicts had significantly increased neutrophil count (NEUn), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and hematocrit (HCT), while they had a significant reduction in lymphocytes (LYMn) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) [5].
The samples were put into EDTA-containing vacutainer tubes and transported without delay to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and refrigerated at 4[degrees]C until analysed for full blood count, haemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV)/haematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), red cell count (RBC), and platelets using the Cell-Dyn 3700 Haematology Analyzer (Abbott Diagnostics) and also for fasting blood glucose.
The first tube was used for haematological analysis including red blood cells (RBC), hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), platelets, and white blood cells (WBC).
Peripheral blood picture revealed normocytic normochromic anemia (hemoglobin--9.4 g/dl, red blood cells (RBC)--3.22 x [10.sup.6], white blood cells (WBC)--13,000, platelets--160 x [1.sup.03], packed cell volume--27%, mean corpuscular volume--84 fl, mean corpuscular hemoglobin--29 pg, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration--34%, and erythrocytes sedimentation velocity or rate--2 mm/h).
Blood samples were also taken from the farmers to identify any abnormalities in creatinine, white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), platelet count and RBC cholinesterase activity.
The other significantly altered parameters include increased mean corpuscular volume (P=0.041) and lymphocytopenia (P<0.001) with insignificant neutropenia and eosinophilia.
A full blood count revealed anaemia (red blood cell count 4.62 x [10.sup.12]/L, haemoglobin 10.6 g/dL, haematocrit 0.324, mean corpuscular volume 70 fL, mean corpuscular haemoglobin 23 pg, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration 32.8 g/dL), with a platelet count of 525 X [10.sup.9]/L and a white cell count of 10.5 x [10.sup.9]/L.
