AFP - Obese people now outnumber the hungry globally, but hardship for the undernourished is increasing amid a growing food crisis, the International
Federation of the Red Cross warned Thursday.
The Geneva-based humanitarian group focused on nutrition in its annual World Disasters Report, released in New Delhi, seeking to highlight the
disparity between rich and poor, as well problems caused by a recent spike in prices.
I seen this story and was very surprised by it. I always thought that undernourished people hugely outnumbered those that have no food poverty. I
would have got this general impression throughout my life.
Anyway its not as bad as I thought but its still a pretty horrible story.
I went onto the worldometers website to a closer look at this and I found a different story.
Obese people do not outnumber undernourished people acccording to this website.
Overweight people do outnumber the undernourished.
So either france24 has twisted this story, the red cross has twisted the story or worldometers information is incorrect.
