Default To jrz: Starving baby In Central African Republic

Dear Priit,
You know, in spite of the famine in that country, those who eat better are those who stay in the countryside or in the forest, like the pygmies. They can find wild fruits, leaves they eat and animals. In Central African Republic, there's is much more forest than desert.
So, the reason why the children get a paunch is because of parasites in the water and other illness. And it's not better than starving...

Thanks for your interest,

Best regards,
