Fighting poverty and diseases is more important than tackling the nuclear threat. Throughout history, millions of people were killed by long-established infectious diseases. Epidemics are the real threat to human today than any other kinds of weapons. About 40 million people were killed in the First World War, while 100 million were perished either in the copper mines or with a virus.

Poverty leads to terrorism, poor health, child abuse, violence, human traficking and all other social problems. Poverty has to be tackled and defeated. The only way to maintain a world peace in not by signing peace treaty and attending peace conferences . societies that left behind need the help of the developed world to provide them with education and means needed to enable them to catch up with their fellow humans. Children that are being recruited by exterimist groups need to be eduacated. Unemployment is the biggest threat to humanity and that creating new jobs is the best and most effective weapon.

In 1974, the first world food conference was convened in Rome, the delegates were treated to apocalyptic scenarios. They were told that there was no way for China to feed its billion people, and that the world's most populous country was heading towards catastrophe. In fact, it was heading towards the greatest economic miracle in history. Since 1974, hundreds of millions of Chinese have been lifted out of povert, and by 2017, China is free from famine.

    It is an improper habit but exist for so long. The good side is more and more young parents never dress their kid with open-crotch trousers.

    Money is not everything to us, but it is really important. In my opinion, health it the most important part, I believe people could live happily without too much money, but it is impossible to do that without health.
