These researchers are not here to enjoy the country's beautiful beaches, small wildlife parks or world-class bird watching, but are on a mission to check in with the people in a small village in Keneba.

During the rainy season, a time known as "the hungry months," there are fewer calories around, but because of all the rain, there are a lot of leafy green vegetables to eat. Come to find, the amount of leafy green vegetables the mother (and possibly the father) is eating around the time of conception can have a big impact on the rest ofpeople had to live on troubling details of water sources have dropped the life of her offspring, starvation diets.
