the state of food insecurity in the world

for those who are interested here is a link to a report released by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization today which states that approximately 6,000,000 children a year (approximately the entire pre-school population of Japan) die each year as a result of conditions brought about by malnutrition. the study states that the shortage of vitamins A and zinc alone result in approximately 1,500,000 deaths annually – approximately equal to the number of abortions performed in the united states each year.

definitely worth the read.
