If the Food Industry Supports it, Your Public Health Intervention Likely Needs Work

If the Food Industry Supports it, Your Public Health Intervention Likely Needs Work | health promotion | Scoop.it

You can pretty much rest assured that your public health intervention is weak if the food industry thinks it's a great idea and throws its support or backing behind it.

Nobody in the developed world comes remotely close to the poverty level that $1.25 a day represents. America’s poverty line is $63 a day for a family of four. In the richer parts of the emerging world $4 a day is the poverty barrier. But poverty’s scourge is fiercest below $1.25 (the average of the 15 poorest countries’ own poverty lines, measured in 2005 dollars and adjusted for differences in purchasing power): people below that level live lives that are poor, nasty, brutish and short. They lack not just education, health care, proper clothing and shelter—which most people in most of the world take for granted—but even enough food for physical and mental health. Raising people above that level of wretchedness is not a sufficient ambition for a prosperous planet, but it is a necessary one.

More than half of Americans live in or near poverty levels, but our government is going out of its way to cut programs that help, including food stamps that help 47 million people. 

Le Hong Phuc's curator insight, January 18, 2014 10:35 PM

Knowing half of the the Americans are living in poverty is shocking. The United States of America has been well known for its long history and strong foundation in both economy and industry, and now, it's one of the most developed countries all around the World. Then how does poverty even exist?

 

Reading throughout the article and it seems like it is more depends on their wages, as well as social expenses and other bills. The bottom half families are not earning enough for their living and are deep in dept, while the top half are making much more but when it comes to and end, all reduced to nearly zero. This is something must have concerned the government.
