While this is certainly not news to dissenters, it’s interesting to see the mainstream pulled closer to the middle in the tug of war.
Avert has reported on a study in the South African Journal of Science which found that those who reported hunger had a higher risk of testing HIV-positive. Of course, no one with any grey matter would believe that malnutrition would help immunity.
The only evident facepalm is believing that food insecurity leads to reckless sexual behaviour. Because that’s clearly the first priority of hungry people. Or at least black Africans. Obviously.
