Once upon a time in a shopping centre!

#1  Postby Clive Durdle » May 10, 2017 1:02 pm

I deliberately approached some chuggers:-)

I wanted to find out about who they were chugging for, a charity carrying out specialist surgery for cleft lip.

I have recently been reading about noma in Ziegler Betting on Famine and assumed wrongly that was what their charity was about.

I described briefly what noma is (look it up yourselves!) and how in Nazi occupied Europe it was very common.

One of the chuggers commented about Pearl Harbour the Cold War and how nuclear weapons were used in Vietnam, the colleague did attempt to explain things but I decided to politely leave!

My point of this thread is to comment

Is general knowledge really that poor?

Is this a general issue- a charity with highly skilled doctors being too specialist and not understanding they are at the end of a very long chain where prevention is key?

Is this why we haveTrump and May?

Their results confirm that malnutrition has a paramount role in the development of noma, and that poverty is associated with the disease



Ziegler describes it as an incredibly important indicator disease that is completely preventable with good food water and micronutrients

So why is it we have chuggers raising money for very rare specialists to treat the wrong diseases when we know what to do? Which of the catholic sins is that again?
