The Great Food Divide

I just read an interesting article in the Star entitled, "North Americans become obese while foreign children starve."

An interesting figure from the article: "Right now, there are one billion people who are malnourished and nearly one billion who are overweight."

So basically there's lots of food for everyone, it's just being distributed very unevenly.

Raj Patel has been documenting this phenomenon for quite some time over at Stuffed and Starved.
