Hunger: Exploring the prevalence and predictors of food insecurity

Not having enough food or access to healthy foods is a reality many patients face. Indeed, one of the ironies of food in our society is that we struggle with the tension between too little of it for some and the wrong kind or its negative effects for others. This issue of WMJ features articles that explore the implications of our connections to food on patients and the physicians and others who care for them.
