According to “The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2012” released by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, undernourishment affects 49 million Latin Americans.
The report presents new estimates of the number and proportion of undernourished people going back to 1990.
With many countries taking strides to combat this health crisis, some countries are failing to improve the situation. For example, Guatemala has seen a 204% increase in its undernourished population.
