This decade has been a decade of paradoxes – over-consumption of food in many regions of the world, and food deprivation in others. Today, over a billion people are overweight or obese, and a billion others languish in poverty and hunger. Consumers are willing to pay US$ 370,000 for a laboratory-grown beefb urger while 2 billion people live on less than US$2.00 per day. Prof. David Thurnham’s article Food and Defi ciencies of Criti -cal Micronutr ients: A focus on iodine, iron and vitamin A is a timely reminder of how serious and widespread micronutrient defi ciencies are, even in the 21st century. Although the article focuses on iron, iodine and vitamin A, Prof. Thurnham has also eloquently highlighted the additional importance of zinc, selenium, folic acid and vitamin D.
