Life is not fair
Born into families, we did not choose rich or poor. We don’t even get to choose our parents! Your mom and dad can be the worst slobs on earth and there is nothing you can do about it. So, whether or not you believe in fate is beside the point… the exact point in the beginning of our existence is a matter that is beyond our control. Over 9 million people die worldwide each year because of hunger and malnutrition. 5 million are children. Approximately 1.2 billion people suffer from hunger (deficiency of calories and protein).
Number of children in the world
Number in poverty
1 billion (every second child)
Yet, some 1.2 billion suffer from obesity (excess of fats and salt, often accompanied by deficiency of vitamins and minerals).
Food wastage is also high:
In the United Kingdom, “a shocking 30-40% of all food is never eaten;”
In the last decade the amount of food British people threw into the bin went up by 15%;
Overall, 20 billion (approximately $38 billion US dollars) worth of food is thrown away, every year.
In the US, 40-50% of all food ready for harvest never gets eaten
Of the food that does eventually reach households, some 14% is wasted, resulting in something like $43 billion of wastage
If food reaching supermarkets, restaurants and cafeterias is added to the household figure, that wastage goes up to 27%.
In Sweden, families with small children throw out about a quarter of the food they buy
Born rich and extremely wealthy. Dinners in the most upscale restaurants, owning the most expensive pair of shoes, possession of an island or islands, yachts, private jets, cars, jewelry, couture; nothing but the best (or what seems to be the best). Still, it would be so great if they’d care for others a bit. Just a little… the way a few of them do.

The pizza made by Nino’s Bellissima Pizza (located in New York City). The 12-inch pizza topped with creme fraiche, chives, eight ounces of four different kinds of Petrossian caviar. Besides, four ounces of thinly sliced Maine lobster tail, salmon roe, and a little bit of wasabi to complement all the fish. The pizza – cut into eight… that is a mere $125 for each serving.
