Just 18 years ago, Venezuela enjoyed the highest standard of living in South America. Then the people voted for socialism.
Now the people of Venezuela eat dogs, cats, donkeys and even giant anteaters for survival. Women and girls prostitute themselves for as little as a tube of toothpaste or a box of diapers. Men die in the streets fighting over dollar bills.
Now a new study finds that 75 % of Venezuelans have lost an average of 19 pounds during the past year.
