3 billion people do not have access to a healthy diet: UN

The United Nations for Agriculture and Food (FAO), other United Nations (UN) organizations and international leaders stressed today the importance of a healthy diet, to which 3 billion people in the world do not have access, during the celebration of World Day of Food.

The UN Secretary General, António Guterres, joined the FAO’s “call to action to achieve food security”, while Pope Francis demanded “to overcome market logic, avidly focused on mere economic benefit and on reducing food to one more commodity” in an act in which astronaut Thomas Pesquet also participated from the International Space Station.
