Where does hunger exist these days? What are some of the causes of community hunger? Are citizens of developed countries contributing monetarily for the ongoing comfort efforts? In this article I will address these queries with the hope that by creating an understanding of the current community hunger situation, morally conscious individuals will do their portion in adding to an eradication of this silent and invisible suffering.
It is a well known fact that there is sufficient food in the world to feed every human being on earth. malnutrition, food cravings and Sadly still afflict one from every seven people these days. Or, from the slightly various statistical point of view, the current community population is 4,712,200,000. The number of malnourished is 797,900,000. Therefore, 17Percent of the world population is currently malnourished or famished. No matter how you examine the matter, a current crisis are at hand. How can this be?
The causes of world hunger are complicated, but there are a few common threads that are most often associated with this challenge. First, and foremost, starvation is caused by poverty. To address the issue of community hunger then this problem of global poverty must be dealt with. Therefore, the question that people should examine is do you know the causes of poverty. A thorough discussion on the sources of global poverty is away from purview of the article. Entire textbooks have already been written about them. For our discussion, it is suffice to say that one of the major causes of poverty is governments seeking policies that inhibit self sufficiency.
Areas of starvation are also characterized by continual problems in cultivating food from lack of seed, arable land, and tools. Those that can develop food, must deal with insects,flooding and drought, and war, which can lead to complete damage of vegetation. Historically, areas of Africa have seen periodic locusts infestations, which may completely damage crops.
Other causes of community hunger are based on the globalize system of food production. The globalize system of food trade and production mementos a reliance on export vegetation while discriminating against tiny-level farmers and subsistence crops. Numerous third community countries export out to much food although concomitantly not keeping sufficient food to sustain their very own people.
AIDS is a substantial cause of food cravings. In societies affected by AIDS, famine is much more deadly and hard to fight. Why is this so? AIDS attacks by far the most productive men and women within community. Fewer productive people within society signifies fewer individuals to work the jobs which involve food production. This is a single contributor to the starvation currently taking place in Africa.
Weather plays an important role in terms of the prevalence of starvation. Areas of drought contributes to non-useable property with following famine. This is well known. But less well known is that flooding can also cause starvation. Plants can be bombarded and therefore destroyed, which in essence produces the same result as drought. Both in cases, climate can produce a total lack of self sufficiency.
