The impact of hunger on health

Hunger and health are connected. When a person is food insecure they are disproportionately affected by diet-sensitive chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.  According to research, people who are food insecure experience many adverse effects to their overall health.

Hunger and health are deeply connected

Healthy bodies and minds require nutritious meals for everyone no matter what the age of the person may be. When people don’t have enough food or have to choose inexpensive foods with low-nutritional value, it can seriously impact a person’s health. Once the cycle of a poor diet and poor health begins, it can be hard to break. Put simply, when a person experiences hunger it can be a life-altering journey.

When someone is sick, having to choose between food and treatment can lead to serious complications.  For example, for food-insecure adults living with diabetes, the choice between food and controlling the disease can even lead to complications like kidney disease, eye disease, nerve damage and obesity. Children at risk of hunger are more likely to be in poor health and struggle in school.
