The present study compared and analysed the nutritional and economic situations in Nigeria, India, and Brazil over the three-decades between 1960 and 1990.
Intra-country comparisons were undertaken for each country.
The various indicators studied included among others the gross national product, total external debt, population, literacy, immunization, daily calorie intake, mortality, and lire expectancy.
It was noted that the economic situation influences the social and general health indicators or a country.
Positive economic growth can lead to improved social development as well as diet and general health conditions.
The opposite is also true, when economic growth is poor.
