Binayak Sen remarks

in Hunger, Dispossession and the Quest for Justice:
"There is an annual incidence of 87,000 cases of multidrug resistant tuberculosis and an estimated annual mortality of 370,000 persons.

And yet, a recent WHO-based systematic review study which established a consistent log-linear relationship between tuberculosis incidence and BMI was unable to include a single Indian study. Similarly, a Cochrane systematic review of randomised control trials of nutritional supplements for people being treated for active tuberculosis did not include a single Indian study in its ambit."
