- an extra three percent of Peruvians don't reach the minimum daily calorie intake. Put in simple terms, that's ANOTHER 700,000 people who don't get enough to eat. Note to those who have been to Peru for their three week aventure vacation and now consider themselves experts on the country; you are unlikely to have met these people on the Inca Trail or in that cozy four star hotel where you stayed.

- more people have no access to running water in their homes than in 2006
- home phones are a luxury
