Indian Doctor Says Malnutrition Killed Toddler Play

June 14 (Bloomberg) -- Gyvi Gaurav, a doctor at St. Stephen's Hospital in New Delhi, talks about the case of a 3 year-old patient that died of malnutrition, which left him unable to fight off a case of malaria. In the 2005 National Family Health Survey, when India last measured its children for signs of hunger, it found 46 percent, or 31 million, weighed too little for their ages. That's almost an entire Canada of malnourished under-three-year-olds. (Source: Bloomberg)
