At the invitation of SIGHT AND LIFE and the Society for Applied Vitamin Research, nearly 30 political and media representatives and opinion leaders met on September 25, 2008, for the 1st Dialogue on Nutrition and Politics at the German Parliamentary Society in Berlin. The introductory presentations on nutrient intake in Europe, Germany, and developing countries made it clear that the unbalanced supply of vital nutrients and its associated effects on mental and physical development are not just a problem of developing countries, but a global one. Dr Klaus Kraemer, Secretary General of the humanitarian initiative SIGHT AND LIFE, demonstrated to the audience how the well- known qualitative and quantitative food shortage in developing countries not only has negative health effects, it also has serious implications for economic and social conditions in those countries. He refered to the example of a project in Guatemala that had resulted in higher incomes and a 46%-higher hourly wage among adult men who had received nutritional supplements as children participating in a nutrition intervention program. Examples such as these highlight the necessity of taking nutrient sup- ply into consideration right from the start.
