NEW YORK (BNO NEWS) -- A United Nations independent expert on Tuesday said an international public health disaster persists as undernourishment and overweight problems have spawned from the globalization of western lifestyles.
UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food Olivier De Schutter bluntly stated that "out food systems create sick people," noting that over a billion people are currently suffering from undernourishment while another billion remain overweight or obese.
In his latest report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, De Schutter underlined that the right to food "means not only access to an adequate quantity of food, but also the ability to have a balanced and nutritious diet."

“UN” and “expert” in the same sentence. That ain’t working.
I would rather deal with Obesity as a world issue than Famine....
Obviously the UN is bonkers
You nailed it.
Is this the lunchbox inspector Nazi in North Carolina pushing foods that equal federal dollars? Blame the West gone amuck strategy. I think they need to come up with a new line.
So the problem of undernourishment will be solved by reducing the number of those who are obese?
...the same thinking goes along with the idea that tearing down the rich will improve the lot of the poor.
In the end the UN will have us ALL poor - and undernourished...
And there you have it.........this was ultimately what the whole "Global Warming" scam was about, attacking Western values....now the veil has been lifted.
So, on average, we're doing just fine!
“Tax the rich, feed the poor. Till there are no rich no more....”
I had this conversation years ago with a globalist. What happens when the whole world is “elevated” to our standard of living and consumption without Western morals and values (Christianity)? Who is going to provide for that expectation and is it possible to sustain through natural law? The answer was the elite would erase Western morals and values but only expand western consumption.
Population control (reproduction cultural behaviors) is a natural process unless mankind “overcomes” natural law for profit. Babylon was not all that great according to God.
naaaahhhhhh, The OIC just has to learn that their nations need to develop their economies to rid their selves of poverty and illiteracy, most of which is born from their so called religion.
Why do you think the muslim in the white house is attacking America? He wants to end western man’s arrogance.
After all, it’s unfair, there is no justice in western man having all the inventions and achievements
This bigger health disaster is all of the turd world diseases/problems that have been conquered during the last half of the 20th century that are making a bigger and bigger comeback in America as well as other Western nations such as TB, leprosy, bed bugs, HIV, Chagas’ Disease, polio, whooping cough, trichomoniasis, et al.
Of course you have the mind diseases like the third world scourge of collectivism that is becoming more popular, too, that is allowing the turd world diseases to enter in the first place.
