Here are three New York Times articles relating to one of the topics I would like to pursue:
Nutritional Deficiencies: This topic spans a very broad range of issues because it deals with food and the dissemination of nutrition to people around the world. There are many reasons for nutritional deficiency for example: elderly growing older need vitamins to stay healthy, young children need vitamins to stay healthy, many people are born with genetic nutritional deficiencies such as anemia, geographical conditions may limit certain peoples from getting nutrients they need, poverty prevents proper nutrition on all levels, whether it be in Africa, or low income families in the US who can only afford prepackaged highly engineered foods. These are just some examples. For my example of a solution I have included a picture of cast iron pots. People with anemia are frequently told to cook with cast iron because it increases the amount of iron into their food when they cook.
