Welcome to this special issue of Sight and Life magazine with its focus on nutrients. This issue is very timely, given that the importance of nutrients – and crucially of access to nutrients – is clearer than ever before. The world has seen significant developments in the field of nutrition since the formulation of the Millennium development Goals (MDGs), to be reached by 2015, which included ending hunger and reducing underweight as part of the first goal. In 2008, the Lancet published the first landmark series on nutrition, which summarized the magnitude and consequences of the nutrition problem, as well as a number of proven and lowcost solutions. Last year, the follow-up series was published.
For all devoted to nutrition.
