Calamitous famines appear to have vanished from the planet, but more must be done to eradicate all such scourges, including redrafting U.S. terror legislation that inhibits life-saving humanitarian work, according to a new report. The study, part of the 2015 Global Hunger Index published Monday, Oct. 12, 2015 says it's one of the "unheralded achievements" of the last 50 years: the elimination of calamitous famines that cause more than 1 million deaths, and reduction "almost to a vanishing point" of great famines, which cause more than 100,000 deaths.
