Do YOU agree :?:



Reply: No. People will learn new ways how to solve the problem. We are all by nature resourceful creatures. Even small animals learn ways how to solve their own problems why can't we.

Food prices are rising continuously. That will be a big problem in the future. Poor people are feeding themselves hardly today. As poor people world's %80 population.

No I dont believe with this ideology. It doesnt matter howmany people are on earth, GOD always feed everyone and provide us food whereever we are and in whatever condition we are whether rich or broke still we get something to eat. So it doesnt affect on the people.

I don't know well if I'm too optimistic on our science and technology, but I think that the earth will be able to produce enough food to support the human race. They predicted, in 2050, there will be 9 billion people in the whole world. And the great increase will be in developing countries. Then, the world will get involved in food crisis.

Yes, the ground or the fields might not be enough to produce crops in quality and quantity in order to feed all people on earth, but what we have is developing technology. We already have many kinds of GMF (Genetically Modified Food). For example, there is vegetation which is similar with an original potato, but can be grown in the dry area lika Africa. Also, we can see many results of efforts to modify food in a better size and nutrition, such as Super Corn.

Besides, what we can bet our hope are the associations fighting against hunger. WFP, World Food Programme, is working to help prevent hunger in the future. They use food as a means to build assets, spread knowledge and nurture stronger, more dynamic communities. Aside from it, there are many associations fighting against hunger now and for future ─ ONE, which fights extreme poverty, ActionAid International, which works for helping poor people own power to fight poverty.

If we are aware of the crisis and participate in the projects that help the poor, study methods to survive in the future, and accumulate money for it by our concern and sympathy, there is a way, definitely.

I think our Earth and, above all its creative and smart inhabitants will solve this problem.
Probably they will create a POPULAR, CHEAP bar with all the indispensable nutrients we need in a day.
They will have different flavours and smells.

What we are going to lose will be the pleasure and the joy of eating . For Example: if we will have the chance to eat an apple bar or a Camembert, lettuce and baguette bar it will be not the same as biting a fragrant baguette with Camembert and fresh lettuce or a juicy,crunchy apple..... :-(

I think we should change our thought about food. No more food as a pleasure but food as something that permit us to live. It is a pity!

How many TV programmes will be delete when it’ll happen? :lol: :lol:
