Cause of Famine

Now, famines are not caused by lack of food. They occur because of such extreme economic inequality that millions of people can no longer afford food. Now plagues such as AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) sweep the planet, not because we do not know how to stop them, but because individuals insist on making obscene profits to allow their drugs to be used. They would sooner make no sales than make merely huge profits. It is a dog in a manger attitude.
