Malnutrition And MANA

9:00 Monday, December 15, 2014

When it comes to food, we live in a 50/50 world. Half the world has plenty to eat, the other half is starving.  Even though America has an obesity problem, every nine seconds, somewhere in the world, a child dies from malnutrition. Some experts now believe those two things might actually be connected. We look into that puzzling connection and hear about a Charlotte-based organization working to address severe malnutrition.
