Question 30: Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 30 to 34.
Malnutrition is a disorder resulting from too little food, too much food, food lacking in the proper nutrients, or food that cannot be digested by the body
There are a number of types of malnutrition. Protein-calorie malnutrition occurs when the diet is low in both protein and calories. If the body is particularly low in calories, a condition called marasmus results. It is called kwashiorkor if the diet is low in protein.
Malnutrition can be caused by a low intake of specific nutrients. For example, a lack of vitamin C can cause scurvy; a deficiency of vitamin B12, copper, or iron can cause anaemia.
The most common nutritional excess, over-consumption of high-calorie food, can lead to obesity, which afflicts approximately 15% of all adults and 10% of all children. A high intake of specific nutrients can result in disorders as well. For example, high intake of iron can cause siderosis; too much vitamin A and D can lead to a variety of problems.
Social and economic conditions as well as disasters such as floods, droughts, and wars may produce malnutrition. Ignorance concerning a balanced diet also causes countless cases of malnutrition.

Before the mid-nineteenth century, people in the United States ate most foods only in season. Drying, smoking, and salting could preserve meat for a short time, but the availability of fresh meat, like that of fresh milk, was very limited; there was no way to prevent spoilage. But in 1810 a French inventor named Nicolas Appert developed the cooking-and-sealing process of canning. And in the 1850's an American named Gail Borden developed a means of condensing and preserving milk. Canned goods and condensed milk became more common during the 1860's, but supplies remained low because cans had to be made by hand. By 1880, however, inventors had fashioned stamping and soldering machines that mass-produced cans from tinplate. Suddenly all kinds of food could be preserved and bought at all times of the year.
Other trends and inventions had also helped make it possible for Americans to vary their daily diets. Growing urban populations created demand that encouraged fruit and vegetable farmers to raise more produce. Railroad refrigerator cars enabled growers and meat packers to ship perishables great distances and to preserve them for longer periods. Thus, by the 1890's, northern city dwellers could enjoy southern and western strawberries, grapes, and tomatoes, previously available for a month at most, for up to six months of the year. In addition, increased use of iceboxes enabled families to store perishables. An easy means of producing ice commercially had been invented in the 1870's, and by 1900 the nation had more than two thousand commercial ice plants, most of which made home deliveries. The icebox became a fixture in most homes and remained so until the mechanized refrigerator replaced it in the 1920's and 1930's.
Almost everyone now had a more diversified diet. Some people continued to eat mainly foods that were heavy in starches or carbohydrates, and not everyone could afford meat. Nevertheless, many families could take advantage of previously unavailable fruits, vegetables, and dairy products to achieve more varied fare
