Our upside down world

The United Nations has estimated the cost of ending world hunger at about $195 billion a year. 

( Twenty-two countries have pledged to donate this money by contributing 0.7% -- less than 1% -- of national income to international aid, but the goal has yet to be reached. Five countries have already met the goal, while others are on target to meet it in a few years. Some, including the U.S., are lagging.)

Global Weight Management Market is estimated to be USD 385.1 billion in 2010 and expected to reach USD 650.9 billion in 2015 (source: Transparency Market Research)

Basically, the money we are spending on failing to avoid getting fat could solve world hunger three times over with change. Who decided to call us homo sapiens.....?
