Different factors influence it, especially social factors, especially affecting people with low resources, and mainly children from underdeveloped countries. In fact, every day 8,500 children die from causes related to malnutrition.
And although that is one of the most dangerous, terrible and serious consequences of malnutrition, in case the person or the child does not die, the heart is seriously affected (by losing muscle mass, causing heart failure in the most advanced state). ).
In addition, the immune system becomes inefficient because it can not produce white blood cells, iron-deficiency anemia appears, and bacteria proliferate in the intestinal transit since there is less secretion of LCH by the stomach. Here I leave more information about malnutrition.
The consequences are even more serious among the youngest ones, since there is less growth and physical development, learning problems, problems of retention and memory, and a decrease in their IQ.
