The WHO report ‘Dying for a Change’ states that lack of food is one of the most frequently mentioned wants. Hunger and malnutrition are seen as underlying causes of many diseases. They cause weakness and exhaustion, and make people more susceptible to infections. Many people in the developing world say they eat only once a day and sometimes have nothing for days on end.
