Africans' Malnutrition

  1. Africa’s Malnutrition/Underdevelopment/diseases:The Role of Maize in Kwashiorkor, Marasmus and Pellagra.

    The original web notes under this heading have been replaced. Over the past year, I have received communications from people all over the world commending me for shedding light on the connection between maize and malnutrition. The web notes have therefore served their purpose.

    Lately, I have started to receive feedback from those of you who have read my first book: A HEALTHY YOU: Tame Africa’s Child Malnutrition. In response, I would like to clarify some of the medical issues raised in the book. Therefore I will be highlighting some of these issues in a blog, starting with the information on the back cover and in the contents. See below:
