The Frontlines of the Battle Against Malnutrition, May 2011

Malnutrition is a world wide problem, even with modern agricultural practices. Yet, approximately one person in six is undernourished around the world. Children in developing countries are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition – and those who manage to survive are often irreversibly physically and mentally stunted. With nearly one billion people going to bed hungry every night, there is a dramatic disconnect between our society of plenty and the stark reality of life in places like sub-Saharan Africa. What does true malnutrition look like up-close? How does it affect the brain and body? What can be done to not only stop and reverse malnutrition in children, but to prevent it in the first place?

This program brings the viewer a series of in-depth discussions from leaders throughout the area on a variety of biotechnical and science subjects.
