Inadequate Access to Medical Clinics:

Most citizens ofrepparttar Third World lack access to medical clinics and basic medical counseling. This is generally because governments in LDCs do not have enough resources to sponsor sufficient medical programs. Many LDCs also lack medical professionals as a result of underfunded educational systems. When people cannot visit clinics regularly, they do not getrepparttar 135615 counseling they need to prevent illness and often end up incapacitated by easily- curable illnesses and parasites, such as worms.

Underfunded Education:

Many citizens ofrepparttar 135616 Third World also lack access to education. Since governments in LDCs do not have funds to provide an educational system for all students, they often create unreasonably hard standardized testing systems to prevent students from graduating; and even when they do passrepparttar 135617 tests, they are often held back because there simply are not enough resources to support them. Without access to basic and vocational education, new generations in LDCs are being severely limited in both future choices and ability to contribute torepparttar 135618 country’s development.

Inadequate Access to Nutritious Food:

Much ofrepparttar 135619 Third World lacksrepparttar 135620 money and resources to eat or grow a nutritious diet--and instead must subsist on one meal each day of starchy local food staples and vegetables. This leads to severe undernutrition in both adults and children,repparttar 135621 often-fatal malnutrition-infection cycle in infants and young children, and high-incidence of diabetes in adults. Many people--specifically in certain geographic areas--also lackrepparttar 135622 means to cook meals. This causes those affected to choose between hunger and food- borne illness.

But then there'srepparttar problem ofrepparttar 135596 story being leaked byrepparttar 135597 person inrepparttar 135598 news media who getsrepparttar 135599 information. Uh-Oh! Not only him but his boss also. We could kill them both . . . What? Are you stupid? Who are you going to sell your story to? You cannot kill them! Okay, change of plans.

How about, some rich eccentric individual buyingrepparttar 135600 stories. Nope, won't work. CIA, FBI, or some Crime Boss would get that datarepparttar 135601 day after it was written down. How about somebody form a clandestine organization swearing all of its members to secrecy . . .

Well, I thought I had a solution. I even considered building a True Confessions Web Site, but changed my mind. More people would be trying to hack in thanrepparttar 135602 system could handle and it would burnrepparttar 135603 database torepparttar 135604 ground. Like I said, I thought I had a solution.

Oh well, back torepparttar 135605 old police tactic of beatingrepparttar 135606 truth out of them. Oh yeah, that didn't work either. I guess I failed to come up with a solution. How about you? Do you haverepparttar 135607 solution? If you think you do, visit my web site and tell me about it. Just go to and select "FORUMS" and look forrepparttar 135608 title of this article inrepparttar 135609 "General B.S." Section.

Richard Brunelle suffers from some strange "brain-fart" ailment that causes him to allow his mind wander far enough to dwell on the ridiculous, long enough to ask such stupid questions. Please direct all questions and comments to the aforementioned Forum at .
