Reasons for and Results of Hunger: According to the Inc. Hunger and Homelessness Survey, one of the main grounds of hunger in the United States is poverty and lack of way in to the available resources and the purchasing power. Currently, an estimation of one billion people is living below a dollar per day. A third of the people in countries that are developing such as the United States are said to be poor. Poverty is associated with an income that has not being equally distributed reduced financial performance nationally and a political organization that considers people not having any powers (World Hunger education Service, 2012).
This is either in dictatorship or democracy. The other cause of hunger in the United States is the growth of the population. Land, forests fisheries and fresh water are used nowadays beyond capability. In contest for resources available, people considered being hungry and poor are marginalized in the United States than people who are not hungry and poor. In states that landholdings are unbalanced, the families of poor people are moved to cities that have overcrowded. The children are the ones who experience damage due to lack of enough food.
Countries such as the United States spend close to $125 annually on the military. Another hunger cause of hunger in the United States is discrimination among various ethnic groups. Results of hunger have led to war, crime and discriminations among people. Both groups discriminating each other use food as one of the main weapon. Discriminations among genders are another hunger cause. The other hunger cause is vulnerability of elderly people and children.
