The prolonged series of dry spells the worst in 25 years, ____ has killed cattle and reduced crops in wide areas of Latin Light America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. j For millions in the affected countries, this means serious food shortages and malnutri- tion; for them, starvation. For housewives in the rest of the world, it means higher food prices as demands on the world's food stockpiles increase. The droughts came at a time when the UN unit was warning that food production in the hun- gry nations was falling behind the growth in population. Floods on the Mississippi River caused millions of dol- lars' worth of crop losses in the United States, a country that traditionally makes up food deficits in the hungry areas of the world. The U.S. and Canada also sold millions of dollars worth of grain to the Soviet Union to help it recover from a dis- astrous harvest. Experts at FAO's headquar- ters here estimate that more than one billion people live in countries where there is not enough to eat because of drought. That is nearly a third of the world's population.
