query on African obese/starvation ratios
I'm doing a paper on the amount of African children who grow up in malnutrition but later die of obesity-related problems. Could I receive some figures on these? I have trawled the Internet but could not find supportable statistics. Thanks.

Dear B
I don't personally have such figures. I would recommend that you contact the Medical Research Council at Tygerberg who should have some stats. You could also contact the Dept of Human Nutrition at universities such as Stellenbosch, Potchefstroom, Pretoria, etc.
Good luck with the paper
