Their mission statement is “Food with integrity” (Food with integrity), being honest with where their food comes from. Pigs and cows roam freely and are not stuffed with antibiotics. Chipotle has helped many family farms overcome the struggles of urbanization.

Random quotes: “The sooner you believe it, the sooner we can end it” “The agriculture department estimated in 1999 that twelve million children were hungry or at risk of going hungry.” “In 2000 requests for food assistance from families increased almost 20 percent” “Of all the humiliations attached to being poor in a prosperous nation, not being able to t feed your kids is at the top of the list” “A food bank in in Connecticut gave away four thousand more turkeys than the year before- and still ran out of birds.” The Analization of “School’s Out for Summer” Anna quindlen’s essay “School’s out for summer” talks greatly about how when kids aren’t supplied free school lunch over the summer can actually go starving. She uses many forms of evidence
Hunger is one of the biggest problems the world faces today, in fact, last night, 870 million people went to sleep hungry (World Food Programme, 2015). That’s a number that is larger than the populations of the U.S and Europe combined. According to the World Food Programme 's statistics for the year 2016, in the time it took me to write this sentence, 14 people have died due to starvation. According to the statistics calculated by the WFP, nearly half of the 21 thousand people that die everyday across the globe from hunger and hunger-related causes, are children. The top 10 countries that suffer from hunger are Burundi, Eritrea, Comoros, Timor Leste, Sudan, Chad, Yemen Republic, Ethiopia, Madagascar and Zambia, respectively (guy-allen, 2014).

Elvis Presley was born January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi to Gladys Smith Presley and Vernon Presley. Elvis was supposed to be a twin, but his brother, Jesse Garon Presley, was stillborn. His parents were part of the working class but made very little money; as a child, Elvis moved frequently due to his parents looking for jobs. Elvis’ father worked odd jobs and was once sentenced in 1938 to three years in prison for forging a four dollar check, but he stayed less than a year (Nix). After moving numerous times, the Presley family settled in Memphis, Tennessee, where the birth of Elvis’ career would take place.
The Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota serves as a prime example where reports show that nearly 40% of families experience food insecurity (Bauer). Food deserts are merely a contributing factor to the current health epidemic and are part of economic struggles faced in Native American
In the pre – vaccine era, diphtheria was common, with annual reported case of 125,000 and annual death of 10,000 being reported in the united State of America11. Invention of an effective vaccine against diphtheria and following the introduction of mass immunization, the incidence of diphtheria fell to such an extent that at the beginning of the 1980’s many countries in the world are progressing towards the elimination of diphtheria.12 ‘The number of reported cases of diphtheria in Nigeria has been declining. Reported cases from Nigeria were 5,039 in 1989, 3995 in 2000, 2468 in 2001, 790 in 2002, and 312 in 2006.’13 There are few reports in clinical diphtheria in Nigeria, but most of these are old reports corroborating the possible declining prevalence of diphtheria in Nigeria, however we reported 5 cases over a year period in 2009 with 40% mortality and speculate on the possible resurgence of the disease.14,15 2.2.2 PERTUSIS Pertusis also known as whooping cough is a respiratory tract infection characterized by a paroxysmal cough.

They die of pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and other diseases. Children from rural and poorer households remain disproportionately affected. Children from the poorest 20% of households are nearly twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday as children in the richest 20%. Maternal mortality is a key indicator of health inequity. Maternal mortality is a health indicator that shows the wide gaps between rich and poor, both between and within countries.
During the twentieth century, gov- ernments started adding iodine to salt in areas where more than 1 in 20 school- children had enlarged thyroids.² Tragically, however, around a third of the world’s population – some 2 billion people – still do not get enough iodine, including some of those living in mountainous regions of South East Asia, Latin America and Cen- tral Africa.⁸,⁹ Despite our detailed understanding of the thyroid’s importance, these people remain at risk of serious and usually preventable health problems. Even in the UK some of us do not get enough iodine. One recent paper noted that unlike almost every other developed country, no national surveys have monitored iodine status in the UK since the 1940s.¹⁰ Despite this lack of evidence, many doc- tors believe that people in the UK receive enough iodine in their diet. New research now challenges this complacency. For example, two-thirds of women in the UK seem to be iodine deficient during pregnancy.¹⁰ Tragically, even mild iodine defi- ciency can leave a baby with a low IQ or can undermine school performance.¹⁰,¹¹ This may imply that many other people may also be deficient in this essential
About 34% of children 10-17 in the state South Carolina are obese making it the 13th most obese state in the nation (The State) II. In the future most us sitting in this room will probably have children and I don’t think you are going to want them have to struggle with the obesity problem. III. Childhood obesity rates have increased in the United States in recent years and affect children in various ways. IV.
