Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 628,094 views on Friday, 10 May 2019 our article of the day is Lucy Wills.

Lucy Wills, LRCP (10 May 1888 – 16 April 1964) was a leading English haematologist and physician researcher. She conducted significant research in India in the late 1920s and early 1930s on macrocytic anaemia of pregnancy. Macrocytic anaemia is characterized by enlarged red blood cells and is life-threatening. Pregnant women in the tropics with inadequate diets are particularly susceptible. Wills discovered a nutritional factor in yeast that both prevents and cures this disorder. The nutritional factor identified by Wills (the 'Wills Factor') was subsequently shown to be folate, the naturally occurring form of folic acid.
