Small-scale, family-run farms not only form the base of rural communities in both the developing and developed world and provide a large number of jobs, but they are also at the center of sustainable production.
There are currently estimated 1.2 billion people in the world that live in extreme poverty, and at least 870 million people go to bed hungry every night. What are the other 5 billion people doing to help? I think it is good that the world is gearing up for the International Year of Family Farming to highlight effective ways to provide family farmers the right tools they need to really nourish the world. We should all do a part and find out what we can do to help to alleviate the problems of poverty. We only can alleviate poverty by working together as a whole world to help out the poor.
Bill Nye the "Science Guy" is using his analytical skills to take on some widespread myths about poverty and health which perpetuate a failed status quo and lead to unnecessarily high infant death rates.
I agree to what Bill Nye has to say. After watching the video, I realised some of the myths that we have in the world are not true. In the video, Bill talks about the myth of wars and disasters killing more people than anything else, but the truth is, the number of people that die because of preventable diseases far exceeds the number of people dying from wars and disasters. 6% of the kids under the age of 5 die from injuries, 11% died from non-communicable diseases and 83% of them dying from preventable diseases every year. If the diseases can be prevented, why are we not doing anything to help? If this 83% of kids can be cured, we should find for the means to help them. Lesser children will die every year and we will improve the world's health on a whole.
Poverty and Obesity: Neighbours In Our Own Communities Huffington Post Canada The film lays bare the link between poverty, obesity and countless other maladies resulting from the lack of affordable access to healthy food for millions of people in...
I often complain about being hungry, but i have never felt hunger to the extend that my stomach hurts really badly. There are actually people in other countries that are starving to the extend that they envisions things to become food. The people in countries that are more developed and well to do definitely do not have to feel this kind of hunger. I used to think of poverty as having no money to afford simple necessities in life like food and water, as well as being skinny to the bones. Never did i thought that being in poverty can also lead to obesity. Tremonica is an example. She is an obese seven year old girl in Mississipi. As her family was in poverty, she had to buy the cheapest food so that the money could be used for other necessities. Instead of buying a fruit that has more nutrients, Tremonica's mother bought a packet of chips for her meal as the fruit was more expensive than the packet of chips which are really unhealthy thus, leading to Tremonica being obese. We should really learn to appreciate the environment that we are in, being able to eat good food and not have to worry about buying the cheapest food so as to survive longer.
