Transcript of World Hunger
What is World Hunger?
World Hunger is the want or scarcity of food around the globe.
What causes Hunger?
War and Conflict
How does Hunger cause suffering?
Every 3.6 seconds someone dies from hunger.
Approximately 925 million people are currently suffering from hunger.
About 15 million people die from hunger every year.
About 25 thousand people die from hunger every day.
About 1 thousand people die from hunger every hour.
In many cases, a family whose life has been interrupted by war will see a drop in income and access to arable land. War and conflict drastically impact food supply and security.
Weather and Climate Change
Natural disasters leave dramatic impact on the production of good land. In many developing countries, farmers depend on one small plot of land. If this land is destroyed by natural disaster, their source of food and livelihood is washed away with it.
In recent years, farmers have seen an increase in deforestation, desertification, soil erosion, and drought. Combined with overgrazing, over-cropping, and deforestation, the impact of poor agricultural practices can destroy good land.
As the populations of countries rise, so too does the demand for food. Population growth has hit developing countries especially hard. Compounded with rising food prices, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to match food production rates with population growth rates.
In most cases, poverty and hunger go hand-in-hand. As a family sinks into poverty, they are forced to stretch their small income. As more money is spent on food, less money is available to spend on health care, savings, and education.
Stoltz, Elizabeth, 5 causes of Hugner, Oct. 21st 2012,
Hunger harms people both physically mentally,
and emotionally. Over time, hunger slows physical and mental development in children
and leaves them more vulnerable to illness and disease. The more malnourished someone is,
the more likely that person will have severer problems. Undernourished adults lose weight,
are progressively weakened, and become
apathetic, less creative and imaginative, and
more irritable. Hunger causes mental suffering because you do not receive proper nutrition for
the brain to function properly which can effect
your mental health through worries, fear of
feeding your family or children, and the constant stress.

Over 60% of malnourished people are in fact women. Over 30% of children in second and third world countries are malnourished.There are 925 million undernourished people in the world today. That means one in eight people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life. Hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk to the
health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined
