Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Taken together, mineral and vitamin deficiencies affect a greater number of people in the world than does protein-energy malnutrition. If farmers could be induced to grow commonly eaten food staple crops that fortify their seeds with essential vitamins and minerals, a significant, lower cost improvement in human nutrition might occur.
