(p.238) 14 NUTRITION
Social Injustice and Public Health

J. Larry Brown

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses social injustice as it relates to nutrition and the relationship between poor nutritional status and adverse health outcomes. It describes the impact of social injustice on nutrition and roots and underlying factors, as well as what needs to be done. A box describes obesity in relation to social injustice. The chapter concludes that government policy that invests in all households and narrows disparities in income and wealth will end not only hunger, but also the many other adverse health outcomes that result from social injustice.

Keywords:   social injustice, food policy, hunger, children, poverty, inequality
