Emaciated or Obese. Both are a form of malnutrition and gut disfunction.

Progurt Team - Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Malnutrition, whether Emaciation and hunger or Obesity is causing human suffering on an increasing global scale and increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer – now the leading causes of death in the world.

Many developing countries face multiple burdens of malnutrition, with people living in the same communities – sometimes even the same households – suffering from undernutrition, hidden hunger and Obesity.

Today, more than 800 million people – about 11 per cent of the global population – are chronically hungry. Emaciation and undernutrition is the underlying cause of almost half of all child deaths, and a quarter of living children are stunted due to inadequate nutrition.

Another worrying form of malnutrition – obesity – is also on the rise. More than 500 million adults or more it is estimated are obese as a result of poor “Western-type” diets, which include massive amounts of sugar, foods containing growth hormones and antibiotics and “missing” strains of gut bacteria.
