Blog Post1 min read

Nicholas Kristof, who is visiting rural Uttar Pradesh, wrote about the causes and consequences of India's malnutrition problems in his NYT column yesterday.  We were thrilled to see that he discussed many ideas that have emerged from r.i.c.e. research.  He talked about poor maternal nutrition and open defecation as reasons for stunting, and pointed out that just because people own toilets doesn't mean they will use them.  He even gave a shout out to the Muslim mortality paradox.   Do check it out!


r.i.c.e. is a nonprofit research organization, dedicated to understanding the lives of poor people, especially young children, in India, and to promoting their well-being.
