Popkin, Barry M. (2002). The Shift in Stages of the Nutrition Transition in the Developing World Differs from Past Experiences!. Public Health Nutrition, 5(1A)
Objective: This paper explores the unique nutrition transition shifts in diet and activity patterns from the period termed the receding famine pattern to the one dominated by nutrition-related non-communicable diseases (NR-NCDs). The paper examines the speed and timing of these changes; unique components, such as the issue of finding both under- and overnutrition in the same household; potential exacerbating biological relationships that contribute to differences in the rates of changes; and political issues.
