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 ...

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.. ...
When it comes to achieving Zero Hunger, financial inclusion is essential. Even something as simple as a bank account can change the future for a small-holder farmer, explains Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, the UN Secretary-Generals Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.

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 ...

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 ...

We hope that this meeting will help us to coordinate and mobilize further our common efforts to promote food security, explained Graziano da Silva.He added that FAO was committed to supporting African-led action against hunger, working within the framework of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Plan (CAADP ...
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 ...

First off: weight restored according to whom?. A graph and a chart in the doctors office? Nah. Youre likely not weight restored. Im beginning to move away from that term as people get so confused and think that if they hit a BMI 19 they are weight restored. Your body will tell you when you are weight restored. A better term is nutritionally rehabilitated. Regardless of what your weight is, when you are nutritionally rehabilitated your mental hunger will decrease. Nutritional rehabilitation is more than just putting on weight. You also have to amend that Energy Debt.. True nutritional rehabilitation is evident only in your mental state. Sure, you likely have to gain weight to get there, but you cannot tell if a person is nutritionally rehabilitated or not from their weight.. If you still have mental hunger I would guess that you are still restricting somewhere, or that your body simply needs more food and more time yet in order to reach full nutritional rehabilitation. You cannot be ...

A timely and provocative look at the role political developments and the biology of nutrition play in world famine The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948, recognizes the individuals right to a standard of living adequate for the health and wellbeing of himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care. More than sixty years later, despite the rapid advancement of science and technology and the proliferation of humanitarian efforts, inadequate nutrition remains a major health and social problem worldwide. Food insecurity-chronic malnutrition, persistent hunger, even starvation-still afflicts more than one in seven of the worlds people. As Butterly and Shepherd show, hunger is not the result of inadequate resources and technologies; rather, its cause is a lack of political will to ensure that all people have access to the food to which they are entitled-food distributed safely, fairly, and equitably. Using a cross-disciplinary ...

if indigenous communities are not central actors, there is no way to solve hunger in those places, he added at the regional headquarters in Santiago.. In these communities we have an important issue of gender inequality, and inequality in access to land, access to political power within local communities, and access to participation, and that is a sensitive issue because of the norms and customs of native peoples, he said.. The empowerment of indigenous women is part of the agenda in the fight against rural poverty, poverty and hunger in indigenous communities, he said..

Описание: This study aimed at making a critical analysis of food security status among rural households in Tanzania. A questionnaire was used to collect primary data under multi stages random sampling techniques. Both STATA version 10.1 and SPSS version 15.0 software were used to analyse data. The findings indicated that 61% of the rural households were not food secure whereas 39.0% were food secure in the study area. The education level the household head, age, household size, employment status, electricity, pesticides, tractor and bank account were found to be statistically significantly associated to households` food security status at 5% level of significance when tested using chi-square. The logistic regression model indicated that employment status, electricity, pesticides, tractor, bank account and household size statistically significantly have a power to predict food security status of the household. The households whose members are employed, small household members and use ...
We assessed the validity of a locally adapted Colombian Household Food Security Scale (CHFSS) used as a part of the 2006 evaluation of the food supplement component of the Plan for Improving Food and Nutrition in Antioquia, Colombia (MANA - Plan Departamental de Seguridad Alimentaria y Nutricional de Antioquia). Subjects included low-income families with pre-school age children in MANA that responded affirmatively to at least one CHFSS item (n = 1,319). Rasch Modeling was used to evaluate the psychometric characteristics of the items through measure and INFIT values. Differences in CHFSS performance were assessed by area of residency, socioeconomic status and number of children enrolled in MANA. Unidimensionality of a scale by group was further assessed using Differential Item Functioning (DIF). Most CHFSS items presented good fitness with most INFIT values within the adequate range of 0.8 to 1.2. Consistency in item measure values between groups was found for all but two items in the comparison by area

Dozens of detainees caught up in a search for militants have gone on hunger strike to protest their imprisonment for more than a year despite having release orders from courts, an Egyptian rights group said Thursday. The 70 detainees have been held since 2004 following an explosion in a packed Cairo market that killed three people including a US and a French citizen. None of the detainees were put on trial because they did not commit any crime. The reason they were detained is because they were the neighbors of the suspects of the attack, said the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights, the countrys oldest human rights organization. The group said the strike was taking place in a prison in the city of Damanhour, 130 kilometers northeast of Cairo. Prosecutors denied the detainees were on hunger strike saying that they have threatened to go on the strike if they are not released soon. ...

What impact is the reduced rations having on children especially? What are the long-term ramifications for potentially tens of thousands of children in this food crisis?. Since we are just reducing the rations, it is difficult to say how children will be affected, as the impact will be seen down the road. We expect that the consequences can be quite grave, especially given the alarmingly high levels of hunger and malnutrition that already exist throughout Yemen, independent of the current conflict. According to UNICEF, more than half of all children under 5 - or 2.6 million children - are malnourished in Yemen. The impacts of child undernutrition can be both grave and lasting. These children face serious health risks. Undernourished children are much more at risk for catching infectious diseases and risk facing death if their food needs are not met. Hunger also inhibits a childs ability to focus and to learn, leading to a serious loss of human capital. As the Cost of Hunger study points out, ...

Introduction. Thirty percent (3 million) of the food insecure in Kenya are located in the urban and peri-urban centres making urban food insecurity and poverty a major concern. Because markets are the main source of food for the urban population, issues of food availability, affordability, adequacy and the ability of the market and public programmes to deliver food come to the fore.. Up to date information on the proportion of food insecure and severity of hunger allow governments and development agencies to effectively plan, monitor and evaluate their interventions. Targeting and packaging of assistance need also to be informed to be effective.. Aggregate or country level estimates of food security are limited in their usefulness because they do not provide useful information for targeting specific areas or groups of people. Data on food acquired by households have been found useful in assessing food security status in households and are considered reliable in determining whether households ...
Other people affected by the rule, even if they are looking for jobs, include unemployed mill workers, fishermen and manual laborers.. As 19 states with strong economies became ineligible for the waiver last year, four others voluntarily followed Maines lead in refusing to accept federal benefits despite the fact that they were still eligible because they represent rural areas where job opportunities are limited and where barriers to work, such as transportation and training, are high.. Consequently, on April 1, nearly a million Americans will join the Mainers who have been forced into debilitating hunger because of shortsighted measures that arent based on sound economic principles in a state that is among the worst in the nation at making sure families can put supper on their tables.. Not only is Maine third in the country for hunger - people going extended periods without access to food (known as very low food security) - but it also ranks 12th for food insecurity, which the U.S. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Appetite, hunger, and satiety in the elderly. AU - Rolls, Barbara J.. PY - 1993/1/1. Y1 - 1993/1/1. N2 - Food intake declines with age and the elderly frequently report a decrease in appetite. Social and physical factors as well as decreased energy expenditure may be part of the explanation for the decreased food intake; however, it is possible that changes in hunger mechanisms are also involved, but more studies similar to those conducted on thirst are needed. The consumption of a varied diet depends in part on sensory-specific satiety, that is, the decrease in the pleasantness of a food as it is consumed. We have shown that sensory-specific satiety changes with age such that it was absent in individuals over the age of 65 and this could be part of the explanation of why the elderly consume more monotonous diets. Additional basic studies on how aging affects the controls of food intake will suggest ways to improve the nutritional status of the elderly.. AB - Food intake declines ...

Nutrition Early Warning System (NEWS) white paper signals unprecedented shift from crisis response to early action, using Big Data and machine learning. 29 May 2017, NAIROBI, KENYA - A new approach to predict and track malnutrition in Africa-- driven by the same advanced technology now powering everything from Internet search-engines to consumer fraud protection-could help trigger a shift from crisis response to early action against hunger, according to scientists.. A Nutrition Early Warning System (NEWS), outlined in a white paper published today by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), would use cutting-edge big data approaches to process large volumes of information from multiple sources to detect early signs of food shortages and raise the alarm about impending crises.. With one in four people in sub-Saharan Africa malnourished, and famine and food shortages already affecting South Sudan and looming in northern Nigeria and Somalia, the approach aims to fast-track ...
Continue reading the main story. I was only 15 when I was first imprisoned. I was barely 18 when an Israeli interrogator forced me to spread my legs while I stood naked in the interrogation room, before hitting my genitals. I passed out from the pain, and the resulting fall left an everlasting scar on my forehead. The interrogator mocked me afterward, saying that I would never procreate because people like me give birth only to terrorists and murderers.. A few years later, I was again in an Israeli prison, leading a hunger strike, when my first son was born. Instead of the sweets we usually distribute to celebrate such news, I handed out salt to the other prisoners. When he was barely 18, he in turn was arrested and spent four years in Israeli prisons.. The eldest of my four children is now a man of 31. Yet here I still am, pursuing this struggle for freedom along with thousands of prisoners, millions of Palestinians and the support of so many around the world. What is it with the arrogance of ...

Youll be surprised at the amount of control you have over your body and how it responds to food…. The Battle of the Bulge and the Mind-Body Connection. This study was recently published in the online journal, Health Psychology.. A team of researchers at Yale University decided to see how ghrelin, the hunger hormone, responds to mental perception[1].. Just so were on the same page, ghrelin is known as the hunger hormone because its responsible for sending a signal to your brain that causes it to want more food.. When your bodys ghrelin levels are high, the signal gets stronger - creating a tendency to overeat, even if youre already pretty full.. Similarly, when ghrelin levels are low, we feel satiated and dont feel the need to eat anymore.. Your ghrelin levels will typically increase before a meal and decrease after youve eaten.. Indulging vs. Being ...
Identify your emotional eating triggers. One way to figure out what triggers emotional eating is to keep a food journal.. Write down when and what you eat. Also write down what you were doing and feeling before you started eating. You can use this information to find patterns in your eating habits. For example, you might notice that every time you start to worry about an assignment at work, you buy an unhealthy snack from the office vending machine.. Use a hunger scale. A hunger scale can help you learn how to tell the difference between true, physical hunger and hunger thats really just in your head. Psychological hunger is a desire to eat that is caused by emotions, like stress, boredom, sadness, or happiness.. When you start feeling like you want something to eat, rate your hunger on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being starving and 10 being so full you feel sick. A rating of 5 or 6 means youre comfortable-neither too hungry nor too full.. ...

As as 30 shortly?min after intraperitoneal shot of the anti-ACBP/DBI mAb, the activation of orexigenic neurons was inhibited, suggesting these results are mediated with the neutralization of peripheral (not central-nervous) ACBP/DBI because an antibody is expected should combination the brain bloodstream hurdle [8]. In given mice, ACBP/DBI neutralization triggered a transient and moderate ...
One thing I find interesting is that short term fasting -- that reduces endogenous triglyceride levels -- does not induce leptin resistance, while starvation (48 hr fast) elevated triglycerides and produced the impaired transport effect. In my crazy days I have fasted several days in a row and I can attest that hunger usually subsides somewhere after the 2nd day. This is in contrast with leptin action, so its not the leptin that is suppressing hunger in that scenario. This is interesting to me because some describe leptin as the controller of all things having to do with maintaining homeostasis, and yet something else has to be responsible for greater hunger early in a fast and substantially reduced hunger in starvation. But if our ancestors got a bit pudgy, this makes sense in that theoretically their leptin levels should be elevated and so early in a fast leptin gets to the brain and suppresses hunger, but as the fast lengthens resistance builds so hunger builds. Like I said, this makes ...
The Golden Spark promotion, a $2.5 million initiative, gives consumers a chance to win sparks that will help fund childhood hunger programs in their communities.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD A little Aqua Teen Hunger Force goes a long way and Im not sure they overcame that hurdle with the movie version.

Its one of the hottest selling movies on Amazon right now.. I love the randomness of ATHFCMFFT, the insane juxtapositions, the unbridled bizarreness of it all; its basically the television show but 3 times as long. Theres no sense in explaining the plot because it makes no sense. Its ridiculous, vulgar, base, crass, uncalled-for, and goes on too long even with a relatively short running time of 87 minutes. But I still liked it. Its so unrepentantly incongruous you dont have to be familiar with the late night Adult Swim program to enjoy this spectacle but its clearly produced for the fans and ...

In a state renowned for agricultural abundance, far too many families struggle to put food on the table. More than sixteen percent of Californians-a staggering 6.4 million people-live in households that experience hunger or food insecurity, according to a Brandeis University report released this summer. Thats significantly worse than in the nation as a whole.. Sadly, the figures include roughly 2.5 million children for whom hunger and food insecurity-defined as limited or uncertain access to adequate nutrition-translate into poor health, poor academic performance, and curtailed opportunities for a better life. In low-income communities, more than forty percent of all children suffer hunger and food insecurity, and the problem is concentrated in communities of color: roughly thirty percent of African-American and Hispanic children live in households that cannot provide adequate food for an active, healthy life.. For some families, a sudden emergency or crisis brings hunger and food insecurity. ...
