Hi everyone,

I wanted to share the results of a study from Burkina Faso by ALIMA and the University of Copenhagen that was recently published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition:

http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/early/2016/01/06/ajcn.115.124644.abstract

The full text is available for free in low income countries (and by subscription in high income countries). Here is a press release that describes some implications of the findings:

Kevin
