Abstract:

Our group and others have reported a series of studies showing that heavy burdens of diarrheal diseases in the formative first two years of life in children in urban shantytowns have profound consequences of impaired physical and cognitive development lasting into later childhood and schooling. Environmental enteropathy (with recurrent episodes of enteric infections/malnutrition) afflicts young children living in impoverished areas of the developing world and causing a syndrome of chronic intestinal malabsorption, that ultimately leads to growth stunting and cognitive decline in times of important developmental milestones, therefore jeopardizing one’s full genetic potential.
