TIL six million starve to death each year(r/todayilearned)
You shouldn’t, because as best I can tell this statistic is a bald-faced lie meant to tug at your heartstrings. The only source is a quote from Ban Ki-moon at a meeting in Italy. Hunger is nowhere in the top 10 causes of death worldwide, as measured by the WHO. As the brilliant development economist Amartya Sen noted, in democratic countries people do not die of starvation even in conditions that would otherwise generate a famine. This phenomenal map of the Horn of Africa famine demonstrates that clearly. Despite equivalent weather and crop conditions, the Kenyan and Ethiopian governments have prevented wide-scale deaths due to starvation by distributing money and food to potential victims.
Your heart is in the wrong place but we do the world no favors by repeating sensationalist lies like this one.
