Validation of measures of food insecurity and hunger. (1/485)

The most recent survey effort to determine the extent of food insecurity and hunger in the United States, the Food Security Supplement, included a series of questions to assess this complex phenomenon. The primary measure developed from this Food Security Supplement was based on measurement concepts, methods and items from two previously developed measures. This paper presents the evidence available that questionnaire-based measures, in particular the national food security measure, provide valid measurement of food insecurity and hunger for population and individual uses. The paper discusses basic ideas about measurement and criteria for establishing validity of measures and then uses these criteria to structure an examination of the research results available to establish the validity of food security measures. The results show that the construction of the national food security measure is well grounded in our understanding of food insecurity and hunger, its performance is consistent with that understanding, it is precise within usual performance standards, dependable, accurate at both group and individual levels within reasonable performance standards, and its accuracy is attributable to the well-grounded understanding. These results provide strong evidence that the Food Security Supplement provides valid measurement of food insecurity and hunger for population and individual uses. Further validation research is required for subgroups of the population, not yet studied for validation purposes, to establish validity for monitoring population changes in prevalence and to develop and validate robust and contextually sensitive measures in a variety of countries that reflect how people experience and think about food insecurity and hunger.  (+info)

Measuring food insecurity and hunger in the United States: development of a national benchmark measure and prevalence estimates. (2/485)

Since 1992, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has led a collaborative effort to develop a comprehensive benchmark measure of the severity and prevalence of food insecurity and hunger in the United States. Based on prior research and wide consultation, a survey instrument specifically relevant to U.S. conditions was designed and tested. Through its Current Population Survey (CPS), the U.S. Bureau of the Census has fielded this instrument each year since 1995. A measurement scale was derived from the data through fitting, testing and validating a Rasch scale. The unidimensional Rasch model corresponds to the form of the phenomenon being measured, i.e., the severity of food insufficiency due to inadequate resources as directly experienced and reported in U.S. households. A categorical measure reflecting designated ranges of severity on the scale was constructed for consistent comparison of prevalence estimates over time and across population groups. The technical basis and initial results of the new measure were reported in September 1997. For the 12 months ending April 1995, an estimated 11.9% of U.S. households (35 million persons) were food insecure. Among these, 4.1% of households (with 6.9 million adults and 4.3 million children) showed a recurring pattern of hunger due to inadequate resources for one or more of their adult and/or child members sometime during the period. The new measure has been incorporated into other federal surveys and is being used by researchers throughout the U.S. and Canada.  (+info)

Economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity in the United States. (3/485)

This paper reviews recent research on the economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity and hunger in the United States. The new Current Population Study (CPS) food insecurity and hunger measure shows that hunger rates decline sharply with rising incomes. Despite this strong relationship, confirmed in other national datasets, a one-to-one correspondence between poverty-level incomes and hunger does not exist. In 1995, 13.1% of those in poverty experienced hunger and half of those experiencing hunger had incomes above the poverty level. Panel data indicate that those who are often food insufficient are much more likely than food-sufficient households to have experienced recent events that stress household budgets, such as losing a job, gaining a household member or losing food stamps. Cross-sectional work also demonstrates the importance of food stamps because benefit levels are inversely related to food insufficiency. Concern for the dietary consequences of domestic food insufficiency is well placed; recent research shows that the odds of consuming intakes <50% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) are higher for adult women and elderly individuals from food-insufficient households. Preschoolers from food-insufficient households do not consume significantly lower amounts than those from food-sufficient households, but mean intakes for the rest of members in those very same households are significantly lower for the food insufficient. This research highlights the importance of food insecurity and hunger indicators, further validates the use of self-reported measures and points to areas of need for future research and interventions.  (+info)

Nutrition and health outcomes associated with food insecurity and hunger. (4/485)

This paper explores how food insecurity and hunger relate to health and nutrition outcomes in food-rich countries such as the United States. It focuses on two subgroups of the population for whom data are available: women of childbearing age and school-age children. Special consideration is given to examining how food insecurity relates to these outcomes independently of socioeconomic status and poverty. In a population-based sample of women of childbearing age, the least severe level of food insecurity (household food insecurity) was correlated with higher body mass index (BMI), controlling for other available and known influences on obesity including income level. In low income school-age children from two large urban areas of the U.S., risk of hunger and hunger were associated with compromised psychosocial functioning, controlling for maternal education and estimated household income. The nutrition and health consequences of food insecurity comprise a potentially rich area for future, socially relevant research in the field of nutritional sciences.  (+info)

Food insecurity: consequences for the household and broader social implications. (5/485)

A conceptual framework showing the household and social implications of food insecurity was elicited from a qualitative and quantitative study of 98 households from a heterogeneous low income population of Quebec city and rural surroundings; the study was designed to increase understanding of the experience of food insecurity in order to contribute to its prevention. According to the respondents' description, the experience of food insecurity is characterized by two categories of manifestations, i.e., the core characteristics of the phenomenon and a related set of actions and reactions by the household. This second category of manifestations is considered here as a first level of consequences of food insecurity. These consequences at the household level often interact with the larger environment to which the household belongs. On a chronic basis, the resulting interactions have certain implications that are tentatively labeled "social implications" in this paper. Their examination suggests that important aspects of human development depend on food security. It also raises questions concerning the nature of socially acceptable practices of food acquisition and food management, and how such acceptability can be assessed. Guidelines to that effect are proposed. Findings underline the relevance and urgency of working toward the realization of the right to food.  (+info)

Women's dietary intakes in the context of household food insecurity. (6/485)

A study of food insecurity and nutritional adequacy was conducted with a sample of 153 women in families receiving emergency food assistance in Toronto, Canada. Contemporaneous data on dietary intake and household food security over the past 30 d were available for 145 of the women. Analyses of these data revealed that women who reported hunger in their households during the past 30 d also reported systematically lower intakes of energy and a number of nutrients. The effect of household-level hunger on intake persisted even when other economic, socio-cultural, and behavioral influences on reported dietary intake were considered. Estimated prevalences of inadequacy in excess of 15% were noted for Vitamin A, folate, iron, and magnesium in this sample, suggesting that the low levels of intake associated with severe household food insecurity are in a range that could put women at risk of nutrient deficiencies.  (+info)

Abbreviated measures of food sufficiency validly estimate the food security level of poor households: measuring household food security. (7/485)

This study was designed to develop an abbreviated method that captures both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of household food security (HFS). Women in poor and very poor households (n = 238) in a peri-urban barrio in Caracas, Venezuela, provided data on food availability and their perception of food resource constraints and hunger experiences within the home. Socioeconomic data and food-related behavior that may predict HFS levels were gathered. On average, the top 12 food contributors of energy provided 81% and predicted more than 90% of the variation in households' total energy availability using stepwise regression analysis. On the other hand, a 4-point 12-item scale was shown to have face, content and construct validity with reiterative testing, factor analysis and a Chronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.92. Assessing predictors of energy availability together with a self-perceived HFS scale may provide a valid and reliable method for identifying and monitoring food security levels among poor urban households.  (+info)

Neuroanatomical correlates of hunger and satiation in humans using positron emission tomography. (8/485)

The central role of the hypothalamus in the origination and/or processing of feeding-related stimuli may be modulated by the activity of other functional areas of the brain including the insular cortex (involved in enteroceptive monitoring) and the prefrontal cortex (involved in the inhibition of inappropriate response tendencies). Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), a marker of neuronal activity, was measured in 11 healthy, normal-weight men by using positron emission tomography in a state of hunger (after 36-h fast) and a state of satiation (after a liquid meal). Hunger was associated with significantly increased rCBF in the vicinity of the hypothalamus and insular cortex and in additional paralimbic and limbic areas (orbitofrontal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, and parahippocampal and hippocampal formation), thalamus, caudate, precuneus, putamen, and cerebellum. Satiation was associated with increased rCBF in the vicinity of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and inferior parietal lobule. Changes in plasma insulin concentrations in response to the meal were negatively correlated with changes in rCBF in the insular and orbitofrontal cortex. Changes in plasma free fatty acid concentrations in response to the meal were negatively correlated with changes in rCBF in the anterior cingulate and positively correlated with changes in rCBF in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. In conclusion, these findings raise the possibility that several regions of the brain participate in the regulation of hunger and satiation and that insulin and free fatty acids may be metabolic modulators of postprandial brain neuronal events. Although exploratory, the present study provides a foundation for investigating the human brain regions and cognitive operations that respond to nutritional stimuli.  (+info)

Hunger is a bodily sensation that usually is unpleasant, and associated with negative emotions. Pain has the same definition, and therefore, hunger is a form of pain. The main difference between hunger and all other pains is that the (short-term) solution, food, is readily available and doesnt require a prescription. In working with pain, it is important to distinguish the sensation from the emotion, and here too, hunger is usually paired with emotion and even more importantly, a behavior, eating. In addition, there are fluctuations that occur over the day and month, and triggers that have various intensities and durations.. Some scientists distinguish true hunger from emotional hunger. This distinction may not be helpful because the physiology to handle hunger, like stress, evolved over millions of years and is not equipped to handle modern toxins, deficiencies, and stressors (such as sleep depri-vation, infection, etc.) Hunger is a pheno-menon of the brain-it is ultimately a neurological ...
The Hunger And Nutrition Commitment Index (HANCI) is a project of the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) with funding from Irish Aid, UKAid and Childrens Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF). The project produces an annual index1 (now in its second year) that ranks governments on their political commitment to tackling hunger and undernutrition2. It works with partners in five countries (Bangladesh, Malawi, Nepal, Tanzania and Zambia) to analyse government action on hunger and undernutrition in more detail and to support advocacy.. Hunger and undernutrition are amongst the most persistent global development challenges.. Reasons for insufficient progress in reducing hunger and undernutrition include lack of political will or political prioritisation. Strong and high level political commitment is essential to prioritise the fight against hunger and undernutrition.. The HANCI comprises two sub-indices: the Hunger Reduction Commitment Index (HRCI) Scores and the Nutrition Commitment Index (NCI) ...

For most of us, hunger is short-term problem with a simple and foreseeable solution: easy access to a wide array of food and nutrition choices. But for one-eighth of all of the people in the world, hunger is a daily, inescapable reality.. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports that 868 million people across the world are suffering from chronic hunger, emphasizing that although it has declined for the first time in fifteen years, that number remains unacceptably high. FAO Director-General Jaques Diouf states: The silent hunger crisis affecting humanity poses a serious risk for world peace and security. We urgently need to forge a broad consensus on the total and rapid eradication of hunger in the world and to take the necessary actions.. The risk factors facing malnourished people are dramatic; the results are catastrophic. Estimates indicate that 53 percent of deaths among pre-school age children in the developing world are due to complications caused by malnutrition on top of ...

As the link between ending hunger and the WHO may not be obvious, here are 10 reasons why the work of ending hunger needs a strong WHO:. ...
The poor are the most vulnerable to seasonal hunger, a fact often overlooked in discourses on food insecurity. Because standard poverty statistics do not consider seasonal hunger in official data collection and analysis, there is no direct way to determine how many of the bottom billion, as economist Paul Collier refers to the worlds poorest people, suffer from seasonal hunger. What is known is that more than four-fifths of the worlds poor live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. Those who suffer from year-round poverty are likely to be even poorer during a particular agricultural season, while those who are not poor year-round may be so during that season. Thus, a large percentage of the poor who are vulnerable to food insecurity are invisible to poverty statistics, meaning that policies aimed at reducing poverty, based on measurements of annual consumption data, may disregard the seasonal poor if the causes of seasonal hunger differ from those that affect ...

Betjemans verse does not fit the circumstances of this review but associating George R. Sims with a book on hunger is highly appropriate, for Simss most famous line: It is Christmas Day in the Workhouse, showed him to be a man deeply concerned about social justice but not one who required such concepts as the cultural turn or the imperial turn for the understanding of hunger (pp. viii-ix). Since James Vernon is a modern cultural historian, he does and, although he offers no definition of hunger, he begins by revealing that he will track three great transformations in the modern understanding of hunger … the divine, the moral, and the social (p. 2) which he sees occurring between the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. Limiting the scope of the topic may puzzle readers then faced with the authors claim that I take the nutritional history of modernity as a given (p. 4). It is a perplexing statement: is the reader to assume that the author has nothing to add to previously published ...

The India State Hunger Index (ISHI) is a tool to calculate hunger and malnutrition at the regional level in India. It is constructed in the same fashion as the Global Hunger Index (GHI) 2008 and was calculated for 17 states in India, covering more than 95 percent of the population. The ISHI was developed by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and presented for the first time 2008 in conjunction with the Non-Governmental Organization Welthungerhilfe and the Department of Economics, University of California. Despite the good economic performance, with over 200 million people who are food insecure, India is home to the largest number of hungry people in the world. In the ranking of the Global Hunger Index 2017 it covers position 100 out of 119 ranked countries and has an serious (31.4) food security situation. The major problem in the country is the high prevalence of underweight children under five, which is a result of low nutrition and educational status of women. While ...
At the same time, rural areas remain the locus of global poverty - they are home to 75 per cent of the worlds 1.2 billion people living on a dollar a day or less. Roughly 100 million families - about 500 million people - lack ownership rights to the land they cultivate, a condition that greatly reduces their ability to make a living and their incentive to invest in the land. Rural indicators of health, education, and political participation lag far behind those in urban areas. Hunger, too, is concentrated in the countryside, worsened by poorer access to safe water and sanitation.. Over the past thirty years, participants at international conferences have repeatedly pledged to break the back of hunger, but this elusive goal has always retreated into the future. Delegates at the 1974 World Food Summit pledged to eradicate hunger within a decade. Two decades later, delegates at the 1996 World Food Summit called for cutting world hunger in half by 2015, even as the number of hungry remained roughly ...
Hunger strikes in the NJDOC, although a frequent occurrence, have not increased over time. These incidents were typically brief (three or fewer days), and thus posed little, if any, risk to the health of the inmate. The few hunger strikes lasting longer than 90 days were partial hunger strikes. On only a single occasion over the course of this study did a hunger-striking inmate so endanger himself that the NJDOC felt obliged to petition a court to order permission for force-feeding. There were no mass strikes. None of the hunger strikes resulted in death.. Several features of NJDOC custodial practice are pertinent to the interpretation of the results of this study. In the NJDOC, both detention and administrative segregation are types of disciplinary housing. An inmate is moved to detention immediately after being charged with a disciplinary infraction and may reside in detention for up to 15 days. An inmate is moved to administrative segregation after having been found culpable of a disciplinary ...

On the list of the worlds top 10 health risks, hunger continues to occupy the first position. One out of eight people go to sleep hungry every night despite living in a world where there is enough food to feed all of us. Hunger, or undernutrition, is a result of insufficient intake of macro and micro nutrients. It can, and often does, lead to chronic malnutrition or severe wasting associated with acute malnutrition.. A staggering 3.5 million global deaths are attributed to the underlying cause of maternal and child undernutrition. About 51.5 million children under five years of age are acutely malnourished or wasted due to a sudden decrease in nutrient consumption, absorption or retention. Of these, over a third - an estimated 18.7 million children - suffer from severe acute malnutrition (or SAM). In the absence of treatment, death poses a real risk to these young ones. Their access to treatment is fundamental in the struggle to overcome malnutrition. One in every four of the worlds ...
Poverty has many roots - government policies, gaps in education, disabilities, discrimination - but, by its definition it means living on $1.90 a day or less. The World Bank has identified fostering income growth in the bottom 40% of every country as one of its two main goals in the effort to end poverty. (World Bank). Extreme poverty disproportionately affects children - 387 million, or 19.5% of the worlds children, live in extreme poverty (UNICEF). So many of their families are caught in a cycle: living in poverty brings hunger, and living with hunger prolongs poverty.. If people find better ways to earn a living, they have a better chance of moving out of poverty. A simple opportunity for parents to earn a living brings immediate relief, gives a sustaining sense of pride, and can ultimately stop the cycle of poverty for their kids. Economic empowerment can serve as an essential weapon against hunger.. ...

About a sixth of the worlds people are hungry today. It is estimated that British households throw away 4.1m tonnes of food each year - the equivalent of £420 for every home. According to one estimate, 1bn people could be lifted out of hunger if food waste in the US and UK could be eliminated, because of the knock on effect that extra food has on global food prices. But to put a lasting end to hunger requires more than donations of bags of grain and tins of milk. There must not only be plenty of food, but food produced in ways that are environmentally sustainable, and assistance in providing increased income for those who are poor. To end famine requires not only a surplus of food and a willingness to distribute it in times of emergency, but also a widespread recognition of the human right to food, and effective mechanisms to prevent armed conflict. To reduce under-nutrition to a minimum, the world must not only be more wealthy, but also more willing and able to provide food entitlements as ...

Despite the many achievements reached in the past decades, in fact, a UN official recalled the global situation still showed daunting challenges.Inequalities are still pervasive, and about 783 million people continue to live in extreme poverty, said economist Benjamin Davis, team leader of FAO Strategic Programme to Reduce Rural Poverty.Hunger was also on the rise, with some 815 million people considered chronically food-insecure in 2016 from 777 million in 2015, mainly due to conflicts and climate change.In such a context, the official stressed that progresses made by some countries towards the SDG1 and SDG2 - no poverty and zero hunger, respectively - indicated the path.Countries that have developed successful policies - as we have heard in the case of China - serve as an example for others, and especially those with a similar context and social-economic background, Davis said.Along this line, knowledge sharing through South-South and Triangular Cooperation is a very powerful tool to ...

When you get a strong hunger pang, have you ever stopped to think if it is really food that your body needs? With weight gain, some of the hunger or cravings you are experiencing is known as a false hunger. False hunger is when you desire food, but your body doesnt actually require it for nutritional purposes. Instead, maybe you need it for emotional comfort or stress relief. Food can never satisfy these types of false hunger and can lead you to eat far more than is necessary. Eating when youre not truly hungry wreaks havoc on the digestive system and can put it under a great deal of strain. It also leads to weight gain, heavy emotions and lack of enthusiasm. By tuning into your appetite, cravings and hunger, you can learn to decipher if the food you are eating is truly needed to nourish the body, or a quick way to provide relief in a stressful situation. To start, schedule regular mealtimes into your day such as a simple breakfast at 7am, a substantial lunch at 1pm and a light dinner ...
by Katie Gustamachio. Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, the founding Executive Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, defines mindfulness as paying attention to the present moment with intention, while letting go of judgment, as if your life depends on it. This definition can apply to typical eating patterns by way of mindful eating.. To eat mindfully, one must evoke all five senses in order to increase awareness about the food or meal consumed. One must pay attention to the present moment he/she is having with food and not allow the mind to stray to how the food may or may not negatively affect the body by letting go of judgment.. Hunger plays a significant role in ones ability to eat mindfully. Jan Chozen Bays, MD, outlines seven hungers worth exploring when practicing mindful eating in Mindful Eating: A Guide to Rediscovering a Healthy and Joyful Relationship with Food. Try to explore some or all of these ...

The hunger mood is controlled by the brain stem. The part most responsible for regulating hunger and other basic motivated states is called the hypothalamus, and it sits at the bottom of your brain. It has sensors that literally taste the blood. They detect levels of fat, protein and glucose, as well as blood pressure and temperature. The hypothalamus gathers this data and combines it with sensory signals that percolate in through other systems in the brain - fullness in the gut, the feel and taste and smell of food, the sight of food, even the time of day and other surrounding circumstances.. Given all this data, the neural circuits train up on our dietary habits. Thats why we get hungry at certain times of the day - not because of an empty stomach, but because of a sophisticated neural processor that anticipates the need for more nutrition. If you skip a meal, at first you feel acutely hungry, but then you actually begin to feel less hungry again as that accustomed mealtime passes by. Thats ...
