Food Insecurity? or Hunger?
From Food Safety News
The New York Times headline shouts: "Hunger in U.S. at a 14-Year High."
President Obama says: "hunger rose significantly last year." But, researchers for a Department of Agriculture report will only say that people are experiencing "food insecurity" or even "very low food security." This latter terminology is politically motivated doublespeak.
So why is the Department of Agriculture using the term "food insecurity" and not "hunger?"

Maybe because the word "insecurity" is a little descent compared to hunger.
