Abstract
This paper was written at the request of the Editor of the American journal "Science" for their special issue devoted to the world food problem published in 1975. The important synergistic relationship between malnutrition and infections is discussed and reviewed. Examples are given both of infectious diseases which adversely effect nutritional status and of the mechanisms by which malnutrition reduces the body's ability to withstand infections.
