Ending World Hunger
Health concerns on the Internet have tackled some of the most important issues of the day, from world hunger to political problems. In the case of the former, the fight is not finished, but the increase of information about the problem has raised awareness about global poverty and the lack of adequate food security that is leaving millions of people without enough to eat on a daily basis. The amount of malnutrition due to world hunger is simply astounding. By working on raising the level of food security, there will also be benefits of increased disease prevention and the creation of better lives for many people.
The main issue that has caused world hunger is the underlying level of global poverty. Many people simply do not have enough money to buy the basic food supplies that constitute a healthy diet. With low working wages and sky high unemployment rates, nations like Uganda and India are seeing many of their residents fall into malnutrition situations. Some programs that are seeking to increase disease prevention and stem the tide of world hunger are giving vitamin and mineral supplements that will help to raise the overall health levels of people that suffer from malnutrition.
On a smaller scale, the powers of the Internet have previously worked to bring awareness to other health concerns as well.
