Malnutrition Kills

Serious title for a serious problem. Tens of thousands of children die each year in Africa and India due to lack of food and lack of proper nutrients. In Nigeria rural women will have several children, not knowing if even one will survive (they often wait to even name a child after a certain period to see if the child will survive); while in the States we choose to have abortions or now have the continuing rise of the problem of obese children, a stark contrast. Just being aware and knowledgable of situations around the world is a good start and being conscious of the food we waste. Feel free to visit to learn more.
