Summary Kamidi lives on the slopes of Mount Merapi, one of Java's most active and dangerous volcanoes. He's three foot tall and has the tell-tale signs associated with cretinism: low hair line, bulging eyes, stunted growth -- all associated with iodine deficiency. 20 years ago an Indonesian endocrinologist, injected large numbers of people in the surrounding area with iodine-infused oil. Kamidi was one of his patients. Within weeks he started feeling more energetic. Eventually he even married -- to another cretin, who'd also been treated with the iodine-infused oil. They had a normal child, Rame. Now a chemistry major at university, Rame recalls, 'when I was a child, I used to dream of inventing some cure or treatment to make my father normal.' He's passionate about making sure other Indonesians don't suffer the same fate. Across the world, there are two billion people at risk from iodine deficiency.
