Too much food causes more death and ill health than too little food
Wow, how dreadful is this. It seems that there is now more death and poor health around the world caused by people eating too much food, than there is caused by people who don’t have enough. That’s a very sad 21st Century problem, and when I think of those who don’t have enough, it makes me feel terribly sad that we have allowed this to happen.
This short post is not the place to discuss farm policies, farm subsidies in the US and EU, food distribution and fair trade.
I wrote this a year ago: https://mothernaturesdiet.me/2013/03/11/focus-on-what-really-matters/ - noting that there were a little over 1.5 billion overweight people on Earth.
Then this week this article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-27586365 - notes that we are now over 2.1 billion overweight people.
Have we added HALF A BILLION, a staggering 600 million more overweight people in just a year?
Does that mean that everyone on earth will be overweight in just a few years?
The research concludes: “Because of the established health risks and substantial increases in prevalence, obesity has become a major global health challenge. Not only is obesity increasing, but no national success stories have been reported in the past 33 years. Urgent global action and leadership is needed to help countries to more effectively intervene.”
Wow, people need my help even more than I thought!
