According to research by the United Nations, about one billion people worldwide are suffering from hunger. The number represents just over 14% of the world's population. The study also reveals that the major countries affected by malnutrition are concentrated mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
The numbers show other alarming data. Every 3.5 seconds a human being dies because of hunger. The most affected are children under 5 years old who, due to chronic malnutrition, even if they do not die, are at risk of impairment of cognitive ability, affect growth and still carry the risk of death from infections.
But what, after all, is considered hunger?
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a human being goes hungry when he consumes less than 1,800 kilocalories a day, the minimum to lead a healthy and productive life.
Hunger is the extreme reflection of social inequality and the distribution of wealth. A recently published United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) report shows that over the last 30 years the number of people living on less than US $ 1 has doubled in the least developed countries.
