In 2014, scientists are coming with new methods to assess brain activities caused by nutritional deficiencies in low income people in rural Africa or illnesses in other country.

One is the use of a specific brain imaging technique called functional near infra-red spectroscopy. The tool allows investigating of cognitive function of infants who may be at risk of malnutrition or childhood diseases associated to low income settings.

The second method is called metabolomics. It is an emerging field with the potential to advance nutritional epidemiology. It may be able to help for prostate, lung, colorectal, and ovarian cancers.

Assessing illnesses caused by nutritional deficiencies and brain development caused by the same important issue are good.

Unfortunately bringing quality nutritional food to poor countries and very low income families is a challenge.

Even In 2014, millions of people including adults, children and infants don’t have access to nutritional food in the Sates, an over-developed and leading country!
