IRAQ Under Construction

3/17/04

My research on Iraq has been academic but is becoming investigative. I have communicated results in political letters and op-ed submissions, so far nothing published, and hope eventually to contribute a detailed positive scenario for Iraqi nutrition.

At this point I am working on tracing Iraqi nutritional status from July 2003, when a FAO/WFP mission explored the situation. Coverage of nutritional status in the media has been less than vigilant. I hypothesize a much more dire situation than probably exists, and am presently attempting to determine the veracity of these suppositions.
