People starve to death each year?
"If I could say how many people starve each year I could not tell you exactly but an estamation would be over 400 million people." Absolutely not so. The actual number, if you consider "poor diet" and "malnutrition" together as a single cause of death, is close to 7 million. The irony is more people die from overeating (heart disease, diabetes, obesity) than do from starvation.
It's around 5 million (5,000,000) people per year from starvation.(not including malnutrition)
That's about 13,698 per day !

I guess that they could.. An additional answer . If they were to stop eating entirely, yes. If they were to starve themselves but still ate a little bit then no, they might be able to survive on their fat stores.. An additional answer . It depends on the state of their health and their nutrition…al status at the onset of fasting. In any event, fasting is not the way to lose excess body fat AND keep it off. ( Full Answer )
Through the inability to afford food, none found. Through being a child being starved to death as punishment, none found. Through an eating disorder in which one starves oneself to death, none found. In the case of the last, there has been some, just no numbers provided. It is estimated that 1 to… 3 percent of teen girls may get Anorexia Nervosa and 1% of them may die sometime within 10 to 20 years after getting it. Obviously there are noted exceptions, Karen Carpenter, Brittany Murphy. And obviously some child somewhere was starved to death by abuse. And, in 300,000,000 plus people, surely someone somewhere has died for being unable to afford food - though actually, there would have had to be drug or mental illness problems for that, as there are food programs in every town. Basically, starvation is so infrequent for any reason that it does not statistically register. ( Full Answer )

In the UK its about 300, but as a whole in the world, there aren't many deaths, especially in comparison to other drugs such as alcohol and tobacco.. To add to this, keep in mind that ECSTASY RELATED DEATHS is very, very, very different to ECSTASY INDUCED DEATHS. Ie, some idiot might decide to driv…e a bunch of friends home after a big night out, he'll have 5 pople in the car including himself and he is on Ecstasy. If he crashes and dies and kills everyone, that is regarded as FIVE ecstasy related deaths. But ZERO ecstasy induced deaths. ( Full Answer )

The United States Parachute Association reports about 30 fatalities a year, out of an estimated 3 million jumps. Figures from other countries are less reliable due to the lower numbers involved.
Individuals experiencing starvation lose substantial fat (adipose)and muscle mass as the body breaks down these tissues for energy.Catabolysis is the process of a body breaking down its own musclesand other tissues in order to keep vital systems such as thenervous system and heart muscle (myocardium…) functioning. Vitamindeficiency is a common result of starvation, often leading toanemia, beriberi,pellagra, and scurvy. These diseases collectivelycan also cause diarrhea, skin rashes, edema, and heart failure.Individuals are often irritable and lethargic as a result. Atrophy (wasting away) of the stomach weakens the perception ofhunger, since the perception is controlled by the percentage of thestomach that is empty. Victims of starvation are often too weak tosense thirst, and therefore become dehydrated. All movements become painful due to atrophy of the muscles, and dueto dry, cracked skin caused by severe dehydration. With a weakenedbody, diseases are commonplace. Fungi, for example, often growunder the esophagus, making swallowing unbearably painful. The energy deficiency inherent in starvation causes fatigue andrenders the victim more apathetic over time. As the starving personbecomes too weak to move or even eat, his or her interaction withthe surroundings diminishes. ( Full Answer )

Actually, wolves are afraid of humans because we kill thousands of them. Through research, so far I have found that wolves have killed only two people. BUT, many have been mauled by wolves. But think of it this way, if someone was trying to kill you, you would probably try to maul them too!!
Very few. Cocaine kills maybe 300 tops a year. Most of the time it only kills users who are dumb and don't know what the hell they are doing and end up O.D.ing or they have Heart disease/problems. So most healthy and smart people don't die from cocaine use. There are more deaths associated with caff…eine then cocaine a year. Cocaine and caffeine are almost similar when it comes to health problems and addiction. ADDIT Cocaine is almost impossible to O.D on solely. What causes death is the combination of other substances most of the users have in there system, particularly alcohol, which has a chemical reaction to cocaine...and in excess will kill you. Actually deaths related to cocaine use are frequent and still on the rise, even though its dangers are well known. Cocaine is so dangerous because it can rarely be purchased in pure form. Street cocaine is often counterfeit or cut with other substances in order to increase profits for the seller. Counterfeit or street cocaine can include a number of different stimulants, anestethics, or other substances that can prove destructive or even lethal. While 'dumb' people are victim to cocaine overdose and death, there are many INTELLIGENT, POWERFUL, AND EXPERIENCED drug users who are taken by surprise by the instantaneous, adverse consequences of the drug's effects.

Peoples are starving because they are hungry. It is true that if you don't eat you are going to starve. The reason that they are starving is that there may not be any food for them to buy or work for, or they may be displaced because of war or some natural disaster.
Yes they can. A great many people have died for that reason, including Karen Carpenter, who was a famous and successful singer.

Any animal can starve to death with sufficient nourishment. Any creature will starve to death if not given sufficient food. Guinea pigs are cage-animals and cannot obtain their own nourishment; they are helpless to do so and it is their owner's or carer's responsibility to ensure any caged animal …is kept clean, healthy and safe, and has sufficient food and water at all times. If you buy such an animal as a pet for a child, it is your responsibility to ensure the animal is properly cared for, since you must not rely upon a child to take responsibility for a pet.

Yes. Puppies need at least two small meals a day perhaps more depending on specific needs , age, weight and medical condition. Any living being, for that matter, will starve to death, if it doesn't get its food for a long period of time. Now, what food is to various beings, depends.

----------------------- No accurate statistics are available on the frequency of "Near death" experiences, but considerable research has been undertaken, to understand the phenomenom. These experiences do sometimes occur, although sometimes in circumstances in which the person is not actually in d…anger of dying. but believes he is. The person is therefore not always dealt with in hospitals or by medical professionals who might keep accurate records. Russell Noyes Jr and Roy Klette ( Depersonalization in Response to Life-threatening Danger ) report that even when a person thinks he is about to die, he can have similar experiences to those who have come close to death. Various conditions, such as oxygen deprivation or reduced blood flow, can also induce similar experiences. Near-death experiences are sometimes cited as evidence of an afterlife, but there has been no report of a person who has actually died (brain death) communicating with the "other side". Allan Kellehear ( Experiences Near Death: Beyond Medicine and Religion ) says that the experiences reported by those who have suffered near-death are inevitably coloured by the sociocultural context of the patient. This suggests that the Christian afterlife is experienced by Christians, but the Hindu afterlife is experienced by Hindus. ( Full Answer )
