Number of Brits dying of malnutrition or hunger is soaring
There were 391 deaths in 2015 where ‘malnutrition or effects of hunger were mentioned on the death certificate’, according to written Commons answers from Health Minister Nicola Blackwood.
Office of National Statistics figures show 59 deaths ‘where the underlying cause was malnutrition’ in 2006. But that rose to 79 in 2015. It means more than six people a month perish from starvation in England.
