Abstract

Despite the advances in science and technology, humanity in the third worid continues to be ravaged by poverty and disease. Surveydata in our country indicate nutritional problems such as undernutrition, protein malnutrition and micronutrient deficiency. Energy deficit and protein malnutrition still continue to be widespread in our country among children and adults, the productive population group. Five to seven per cent of children suffer annually from eye damage caused by vitamin A deficiency and recent studies suggest that even mild vitamin A deficiency probably increases morbidity and mortality in children, highlighting the public health importance of this disorder.
