Seeds of economic health disparities found in subsistence society
(Washington State University) The Tsimane subsistence communities living on the edge of the Bolivian Amazon have less inequality but also fewer chronic health problems linked to the economic disparity of industrialized Western societies. Researchers tracked 13 different health variables across 40 Tsimane communities, analyzing them against individual's wealth and each community's degree of inequality. While some have theorized that inequality's health impacts are universal, researchers found only two robustly associated outcomes: higher blood pressure and respiratory disease.

Why Water & Sanitation Systems are Vital for the Economy
Credit: UN WaterBy Catarina de AlbuquerqueLISBON, Mar 21 2021 (IPS) This World Water Day, we celebrate the value of water, which at first might be a given: after all, water is the basis of all life. Without water we have no health, wealth, equality, or education. But, do governments adequately prioritize and invest in clean water? The answer, in far too many parts of the world, is a resounding no. As an international community, we are too often blind to the huge cost of failing to serve so many people with the most basic but crucial of services. Globally, there are still 2.2 billion people without access to safe drinking...
