Education in poverty-stricken areas is a luxury that many people do not receive and has always been a fight from the beginning of Mississippi’s historical roots. The battle for adequate education began over the issue of segregation and continues to hinder teens’ ability to learn. One of the reasons that education is unsatisfactory in many parts of Mississippi is because education and poverty are interrelated. Poverty has a negative impact on the student’s achievements and academic success and puts them at disadvantages for their futures. Although Mississippi is notorious for its major issues, the correlation of poverty and education have persisted as some of the most pressing issues that require immediate attention.
Many kids may be getting enough food so they they don’t die, or don’t necessarily even feel hungry, but still become malnourished and experience effects like stunted growth, reduced energy, and underdevelopment. “In some places, quantity of food isn’t the problem, it’s the quality”(Gates). The foods they’re eating don’t have enough proteins and nutrients to fully develop. Africans don’t only need help getting enough food, but also the right
Segregation impacts the health of African Americans more than any other racial group in the United States. For example, the highest socioeconomic (SES) blacks which had an income that was greater than 50,000 dollars were more segregated than the poorest Latinos and Asians with an income of less than 15,000 dollars. Eating healthy and exercising regularly is difficult for individuals in segregated areas because they lack recreational facilities and exercising outside is dangerous due to safety reasons. Healthy food is expensive compared to junk food or fast food which is relatively cheap so those on a low-income budget will choose the cheapest food available which can cause obesity and
Some victims of the holocaust were too weak to even walk they would see people fall to the ground and not get back up. Now the biggest reason they’re not getting up is that they can’t it is to hard for them to do that because of starvation. Now at this point you’re probably thinking why doesn’t someone help them up well the reason they are scared that will happen to them also if they attempt. The main reason people became weak is of course starvation but also no food like eggs or a drink like milk they couldn’t get their hands on. Now not having those types of things makes your bones weak and causes you to fall over and make you
That means the one in every eight people on Earth goes to bed hungry each night and Asia is the continent with the most hungry people III. In addition, women are the most hungry than men, which is 60 percent of women and the rest is men. Because, the lack of maternal care that offered in their countries to women who are pregnant are still undernourished that means annually 240 000 women will die in childbirth. (MORGAN, 2014) (PIE CHART) (Transition: Lets us begin with war and conflict) Body I.

Wine and cheese and also important components of Italian food culture, it also has a very authentic taste seeing how it is home to the most famous vineyard.

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.
Another way of surviving from poverty is through moving from rural to urban areas for grant offered to help vulnerable population. Poor people eat unhealthy and innutritious food. However, health food is crucial for improving thinking and learning of children. Eating healthy food is important to pregnant mothers because eating innutritious food cause everlasting brain damage.

There needs to be healthier more affordable options in poor communities. Poor people usually only options are the convenient unhealthy fast foods. There need to be more nutritious healthy foods such as vegetables, whole grains, and baked proteins liked chicken and fish at food banks and at their local grocery stores for an affordable price. Poor communities also need feasible outlets of exercise, more parks, more jogging trails, and more gyms. The media also has a hand in bad health in low income communities.
This means that children’s diets are lacking essential nutrients such as fruits and vegetables, and instead exposed to fats and sugars, which have negative effects on academic ability and health. The Good Child Report (2017) states families from a low-income background are not entitled to free school meals as the parent is working. This is a huge concern, as children need a healthy school meal in order to thrive. Without free school meals, parents may struggle to find a healthy, balanced meal for their child and may opt for a cheaper, unhealthy meal due to money troubles. This shows that the Macrosystem is failing the child, as the child is not getting the meal that they need due to the government’s guidelines.
Diet and obesity are major contributors to health inconsistency, with the most deprived being most at risk. This is due to the poorest living in run-down areas with no reasonably priced nutritional food available from local shops. If they are unable to afford the costs of travelling to areas supplying this, or if they are time poor then cooking beneficial meals is difficult then they are more likely to buy cheap, fatty products. The involvement of the government in the population’s lifestyle means that they should be accountable for the effects that come alongside an unhealthy regime, such as an increase in health problems such as Coronary heart disease. This means that the treatment an individual receives shouldn’t be approached differently
There were times when some African Americans lived their lives in poverty. According to the article, students who lived in poverty were often left behind in school because they could not get the support due to weak services (Fram, Miller-Cribbs, Van-Horn p. 309). This shows how students were treated based on what they could and could not afford. These students did not have much support so it was harder for them. Classrooms for students of the lower minority were not properly fortified, and most of the students that were in these classrooms were not that efficient in reading as described in the article.
The infant mortality rate is 104.34 deaths/1,000 live births, I found this an interesting fact because it is sad and good to share this struggle how not all countries have as great medical attention as we do. In 2011-2012 there was a bad harvest which caused food stocks to be lower than usual. The farmers couldn 't meet their food needs without help. The low food levels then affects the stock breeders due to the feed balance deficit. This shortage makes it difficult for breeders to sell their livestock because nobody wants to come forth and buy it.
