Summary
"Hunger is the number-one health problem in the world. In this informative volume, readers will learn the causes of hunger, who is affected and where, what solutions are available, and how changes can be made to combat this pernicious problem. 'Look to the Past' boxes highlight key events and people throughout the history of hunger. 'Science Solutions' boxes offer thought-provoking options about how science might provide life-changing answers to some of the most difficult problems faced in feeding the hungry. 'Countdown!' boxes provide statistics that put the need for fast, effective, and lasting solutions to hunger in perspective"--Provided by the publisher
