Dear Log,

«Children are dying daily of malnutrition in Argentina as a result of the catastrophic economic crisis in the world's fourth biggest exporter of food. In the past week, images of stunted, emaciated children have scandalised Argentina, long known as the grainstore of the world. Meanwhile the vast, fertile country has increased exports of meat, wheat, corn and soya this year. Some of the children pictured in north-eastern Tucuman province had the bloated stomachs, blotchy skin and dry hair associated with severe protein deficiency.»
