Thank you, Chair.
I'll let my colleague put that on the record. I think that is a very important point.
It's a fascinating discussion here, and I'm intrigued to get another angle on some of this nutritional deficiency.
A question comes to mind as you're telling me this. Has this been the case throughout human history? Have people always had a deficiency of zinc, have they always had a deficiency of vitamin A and all the others, or is there another underlying problem?
I say that because we had the health people in, and of course the health accord is coming up, and we have some great dialogue around that. My challenge was that we're talking about the end result. What are we doing right at the beginning? Are we looking to see why we have deficiencies in these areas? Is that part of the scope—and I'm not being critical, because what you're doing is important—or are we putting all of our energy on the result of the problem and not looking at the problem?
Do you understand what I'm getting at?
