The World Health Organization said this:
“[Mal]Nutrition is the main cause of death and disease in the world.”
They said it in 2019, before there was a pandemic.
Here’s how to save a lot more than a million lives. Ignore the greenwashing, co-optation, and outright bribery put forth by oligarchs like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk. You know why we have corrupt people like Pelosi and Mnunchin negotiating the bail out? Because oligarchs put them there.
We bring 60 000 people into the world each day while 50 000 die of poverty and starvation .
We call this Gods plan ,but its humans who choose their on the ground reality.
The irony of approvingly quoting someone responsible for so much misery and death apparently was lost on the author.
