How Can Hunger and Obesity BOTH Be Problems In Our World?

Something really strange is going on in our world. Obesity is a problem, we all know it, we can see it and the media reminds us of this day after day. However, at the same exact time hunger continues to be an enormous problem. No one can deny either of these facts, but they become even more intriguing when the data collection happens.
According to Ellen Gustafson's TEDxEAST talk in May 2010, the number of hungry people and the number of overweight people in the world each count up to be about 1 billion! How is it possible to view these as to separate problems? They are both about food!

If you have not seen Ms. Gustafson's TED talk yet, I think it is worth a watch.

Once you have watched and you are ready to see how the 30Project has grown so far, then here are some links for you to check out:
