How we should go about feeding our world population
How population is growing very fast, I do beleive we have enough good to feed our world population, but we go about it the wrong way According to the agriculture.tusk web site the world population should be about 8.3 billion in 2025. I believe if the world food supply if distributed evenly everybody will be okay, but there are countries that get more food than our third world countries like Asia and Africa for example. According to the article if the Third World countries attempted to obtain 30% of their calories from animalâ€™s products- as in the USA and other countries a world population of only 2.6 billion people could have been sustained. They also believe that if these third world countries diets improve the food demand could increase by 100 percent- to above 9 billion gross tons-over 35 years period.
Plant products constituted 93% of the human diet, with about 30 crops species providing most of the worldâ€™s calories and protein, including eight species of cereals, which collectively accounted for 66% of the world food supply. Base of the food production chat this article gave, our food product is mainly increase in percent. We have the food; I just donâ€™t think we know how to divide it up. You will think countries with more people will get more food, but it doesnâ€™t work like that.
Being raise in a third world country myself at a young age, I donâ€™t believe they should blame the food problem on third world countries. Yes third world countries are more populated that USA or Canada, but I believe Canada and USA get more of the food supplies than these third world countries and these countries have more people in their population. They need to divide the food equally and stop worrying about third world countries dieting. I believe USA diet and stay fit and skin and health, but Some third world countries like Africa for example believe big is beautiful we donâ€™t worry too much about being skin and fit, we enjoy the food that natural have provide for us.
