From this article, I can see that water is essential for survival for every human and I'm glad to see that more people are getting improved ssources of drinking water, or gettting just water safe for consumption in parts of the world. However there are still areas where do not have water safe for consumption thus causing people to still need water.Because water is need for crops growing etc, people are also not having enough supply of food due to problems like water is not safe.
I think of the people who do not have enough water when I read this article. I feel sorry for them, because not everyone is helping them with this problem, and we are just sitting here watching them like everyday. I think of how my own life will be like without water that is safe for me to drink. I think of how my life will be like, if everything around me is lifeless, due to the fact that livign things are dying because there is no water left.
I wonder how it would be like, if we do no solve their problems of not having water safe enough for drinking. I wonder if these people would be willing to mobve to another place where there is water and food safe for consumption.
From this articicle, i can see that obesity is actually linked to cheap food. this is because when one does not have the money to buy food, they will go for cheaper options, but it makes it more unhealthy. These foods can be processed foods etc.
It makes me think that cheap food may not be that healthy to one's health after all, so why buy these foods, when it is bad for health? I do understand that people facing poverty may not have the money to buy more nourishing food for themselves, but what about those who do have money to support themselves.
It makes me wonder how people do know that they are consuming unhealthy food, but still continue on eating it, just because it saves a little money.
"Global food prices continue to rise," begins a recent report by the World Bank. Between October 2010 and January 2011, the Bank's food price index increased by 15 percent, and the global prices of wheat, maize, sugar and edible oils have all increased sharply.

From this article, I can see that poverty has actually reached most parts of the world, and that some countries are getting much more affected by it. As our natural resources are being used up consistently, food prices are uncontrollably increasing by much more than it should be.
It makes me think of how the other countries which are worse then the amount of people facing poverty in the U.S. are going to survive and overcome this problem. Does anyone actually help them? Or are they just pushed to one corner, left to die alone due to starvation? It makes me think of the fortunate people these days who do not appreciate what they have.
This article makes me wonder if the future generations would be abe to cope with the more drastic price increases in the future, where more of our natural resources are gone. t makes me wonder, how are the people who are originally poor, able to make sure they have enough money or food or survival needs to keep themselevs alive.
Annual food survey shows that households are ditching fresh, healthy foods and 'trading down' to counter rising prices
The UK's poorest households are being disproportionately hit by the impact of soaring food prices, according to new government figures that also show the consumption of every major nutrient has fallen in the last four years.
In order to cut costs since 2007, UK households have bought less bread, lamb, beef, fish, fruit, vegetables, potatoes and alcoholic drinks – but more bacon.
The government's annual Family Food survey, which provides the most detailed annual snapshot of food and drink spending and consumption, found that weekly spending per person on all household food in 2011 was £27.99, an increase of 1.5% on the previous year. But because of price rises, that bought less food - 4.2% less in 2011 than in 2007.
From this article, I can see that many people are starting to not consume or buy fruits and vegetables, because they are increasing in price and instead bought quite unhealthy food. I believe this is because if the lack of harvest, thus the markets are selling things at a higher price.
It makes me think of the other countires which have fuits and vegetables of the same pricing as usual, why do people still not want to buy them? They know that fruits and vegetables are healthy for them. This also brings back to the point where the lack of money does not let one eat well and healthily.
I wonder if the country can import more fuirts and vegetables from other countires so that they have more to sell, and that they would not have to increase the price of the things which they are selling.
Why do so many people in poor countries eat so badly—and what can be done about it?... Even where there is enough food, people do not seem healthier. On top of 1 billion without enough calories, another 1 billion are malnourished in the sense that they lack micro-nutrients (this is often called “hidden hunger”). And a further 1 billion are malnourished in the sense that they eat too much and are obese. It is a damning record: out of the world population of 7 billion, 3 billion eat too little, too unhealthily, or too much. Malnutrition is attracting attention now because the damage it does has only recently begun to sink in. The misery of lacking calories—bloated bellies, wasted limbs, the lethargy of famine—is easy to spot. So are the disastrous effects of obesity. By contrast, the ravages of inadequate nutrition are veiled, but no less dreadful.
From this article, I can see that children are suffering from the lack of food. In some countries, the children starve for almost the whole day and they will only get food if they come to school. Starving is bad for their health and they will suffer from different malnutrition symptoms in the long run if they do not treat the probolem of lack of food seirously now.
It gets me thinking of the amount of children who die each day because they cannot take the hunger, and die of some diesease or just plainly starvation, although in some countries, food is nothing important to the people because food is taken for granted.
I wonder how will the children feel about their lives, if they knew that they are leading worse lives than those who are more fortunate than them. Would they feel that it is unfair? or are they just contented with what they have?
