Every day, 35, children under age five 14 million a year die of malnutrition and related preventable diseases. Merchants were taking food from famine areas to parts of the country where there was no famine. Excessive fossil fuel consumption in rich countries has dire consequences for poorer developing nations, which become more susceptible to frequent and serious droughts and floods.
In a world of 5 billion people, more than 1 billion are desperately poor and face food insecurity. As the problem of world hunger becomes more and more apparent I wanted to write an article for what I believe is the solution to the problem.
The suffering and death that are occurring in these developing nations is not fated, nor inescapable.

This is one of the most troubling and complex realities of the world hunger problem.
Therefore, my action will be to switch to veganism, for at least two weeks, and possibly continue after the two weeks are through. The hunger issue the planet is faced with can be resolved with the conservation of excess food, the increased use of Genetically Modified Foods GMFs and the greater funding of global relief efforts.
Now imagine not being able to suppress that feeling.
Then hunger is ceaseless discomfort, weakness, and pain.
