@SamAdvocacy 3A: It’s an alarming rate, and unfortunately and obviously due to the economic situation of our country, most are due to hunger.
Malnutrition and Hunger however, even though seeming interchangeable, are not the same.

@SamAdvocacy 3B: Hunger is just an increased appetite or craving for food. On its own can be felt by anyone, disappearing in the presence of adequate food. Malnutrition however can happen in the presence or absence of food.👇🏽

@SamAdvocacy 3C:
However Prolonged and chronic hunger (starvation) can lead to malnutrition.
Malnutrition is simply lack of proper nutrition, caused by not having enough to eat (hunger), not eating enough of the right things (Undernourishement), or...

@SamAdvocacy ...or being unable to use the food that one does eat (Malabsorption). Malnutrition leads to a diseased state and can also be caused by a diseased state.
So they go hand in hand most times esp in Africa.
