Thanksgiving scold

BBC, November 22:
Nearly six million children die from hunger or malnutrition every year, the Food and Agriculture Organisation says.

Many deaths result from treatable diseases such as diarrhoea, pneumonia, malaria and measles, the agency says.

They would survive if they had proper nourishment, the agency says in a new report on world hunger.
The article includes links to the full report on "food insecurity" as well as the Executive Summary.
"Reducing hunger should become the driving force for progress and hope," FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf wrote in the report.
Happy Thanksgiving!
