Drudgery Reduction Has Important Effect on Improving Nutritional Status in Low and Middle-Income Rural Households in Ghana and India
A novel study conducted by Srinivasan et al. and published in Economics & Human Biology looks at changes in physical activity patterns, specifically drudgery reduction, and how these changes might affect the energy requirements of both men and women in rural households in Ghana and India. The study, “Drudgery reduction, physical activity and energy requirements in rural livelihoods,” explains that drudgery reduction is the substitution of activities with moderate/vigorous/very vigorous energy intensity with activities that use light energy intensity.
Fish has always been a food source that is rich in many nutrients. In a paper recently published by Dr. Andrew Throne-Lyman, he points out that the nutrient composition of fish is enough to improve nutrition in malnourished communities living near fisheries.
