Malnutrition increases the risk of infection and infectious disease, and moderate malnutrition weakens every part of the immune system. For example, it is a major risk factor in the onset of active tuberculosis. Protein and energy malnutrition and deficiencies of specific micronutrients (including iron, zinc, and vitamins) increase susceptibility to infection.   IPS research on combatting malnutrition in Sri Lanka reveals that one of the main reasons for child malnutrition among poor households is the lack of protein-rich food in daily diets. Further, it reveals that growth deficiencies significantly increase with the child’s age, especially after the first two years.

Laureates. The World Food Prize laureates are formally honored at the World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony annually on or near the World Food Day (16 October). The winners receive , United States dollars.. The announcement of the World Food Prize laureate or laureates is made in the late spring or early summer prior to her, his or their formal recognition . Recent data from the World Health Organization showed that 60% of all deaths, occurring among under-five children in developing countries, could be attributable to malnutrition, and the Global Burden of Disease Study estimated that childhood malnutrition alone accounted for approximately half (%) of the global loss of disability-adjusted.

  Food insecurity or a lack of access to sufficient and affordable food: Studies link food insecurity in both developing and developed nations to malnutrition (28, 29, 30).   Nutritional advantages of traditional food habits • The traditional diets of most societies in developing countries are good. • Eating certain protein-rich foods such as insects, snakes, baboons, mongooses, dogs, cats, unusual seafoods and snails is beneficial. • Another habit that is good nutritionally is the consumption of animal blood.

In developed countries, elderly people who are aged 65 years and above normally live within care facilities and such situation put them at a risk of becoming malnutrition.

Malnutrition in contrast is no news, though it is widespread and continuous in most developing countries, where it probably constitutes the greater threat to life.

Malnutrition has of course been studied extensively by biological and social scientists, especially in connection with contemporary developing countries. In developing countries where dietary protein sources are largely limited to plant foods due to the high cost of conventional protein [7,8], this foreseen deficit in animal protein supply may.

During the s and 70s, experts believed that a deficiency in animal-based protein was the primary cause of malnutrition. Learn why T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, thinks that consuming more animal protein isn’t the answer to solving protein-energy malnutrition in developing countries.Chapter 8 - Malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies Extent of the problem and its consequences.
