The first and often overlooked effect is malnutrition. Malnutrition is defined as an “unhealthy condition that develops when one does not get enough vitamins and minerals to function”(Huber). This condition leads to stunted growth and underdevelopment. “40% of kids in Sub-Saharan Africa are physically stunted”(Gates). Out of all kids worldwide, one in four are stunted, and a staggering ¾ of these live in just the sub-saharan region of Africa(Gates).
GDM was one of the factors causing foetal growth restriction which resulted in low birth weight. Even though GDM is responsible for both high or low birth weight, both of the situations associated with metabolic syndrome as the long term effect. The metabolic syndrome include hypertension, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease
Nutrition deficiency, known as malnutrition, is a result when the body is not able to get the proper nutrients for the body organs to function effectively. According Lowe (2016), as of January 30, 2016, 1.8 million Filipino children ranging from 6-10 year olds suffer from severe malnourishment. Children are affected not only because of the lack of nutrients, but also because of poor feeding and care practices, poor health conditions and lack of access to health services and unsanitary conditions. This vividly explains that aside from lack of nourishment, nutritional malpractices and inaccessibility to health care prompt
Can it become fatal in some cases?.It all mainly depends on how our system works and how our immune system responds to the situations that arise (3). The main role of fetal cells and maternal cells and their total response to each other in disease or health has not been completely identified. The future works on this topic include:1. understanding the maternal and fetal alleles,2.reseraching on exactly how the foetal cells affects the maternal tissues and3. measuring the fetal and maternal immune cell interactions(6). Several new techniques have been identified like: bioluminescent imaging for in vivo FMC cellular trafficking using nano particle
Malnutrition occurs when the body does not receive a sufficient amount of nutrients in order to remain a healthy state. Malnutrition is especially prevalent in developing countries. These countries lack the resources and money in order to have a consistent source of food. Sometimes when they get food, it is not in the best condition or it is not clean. In 2002 there were 852 million reported cases of malnutrition, with 815 million of those coming from developing nations (Krawinkel, 2005).
An enormous amount of crucial issues are holding the world back from achieving global development, of which high levels of malnutrition… When a person does not get the proper amount of nutrients, whether more or less than required, malnutrition becomes a concern. In fact, it is the world 's greatest single contributor to disease. Malnutrition can be related to nearly all of the Millennium Development Goals, thus reducing the chances to achieve any of them. The Sub-Saharan part of Africa has one of the highest rates of malnutrition in the world with one in every four people chronically malnourished. Moreover, in this area, the number of malnourished individuals has significantly increased over the past few years with 176 million in 1990
Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
Researchers: Kyle Antonio Latayan & Margaret Manuel General Topic: Nutrition Narrowed Topic: Effects of malnutrition on children ages 6-10 in NCR in 2013 Thesis Statement: There are several effects of malnutrition among children living in the poverty line because they do not receive adequate education. Literature Review Nutrition is one of the essential processes directly influencing the overall health and growth of an individual. This requires a person to be fully aware on the types and quantity of food he or she needs to intake on a regular basis. However, the nutrition education of most people are adversely affected, as poverty continues to be one of the central problems encompassing the whole world, especially the third world countries.
Malnutrition in children not only effect their physical growth and development but it also impairs their cognitive abilities and development and can lead to abnormalities. The dominant reason of morbidity and mortality in children is malnutrition which is increasing day by day. According to the recent researches 60% mortality rate (Laghari, et al., 2015
Even more people suffer in malnutrition. Children are the most visible victims of undernutrition. Malnutrition can also be caused by diseases, such as the diseases that cause diarrhea, by reducing the body’s ability to convert food into usable nutrients. 60% of the hungry in the world are women. Almost 5 million
