Also, ubiquitous vegetarians negatively affect the environment. Hence, a regular diet consisting of meat outclasses vegetarianism in health and environmental impacts. To go along with poor personal health, vegetarianism negatively affects the health of the environment and endanger the lives of other organisms. For starters, David Pimentel and Marcia Pimentel from the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” states, “about 90% of US cropland suffers from topsoil loss at 13 times the sustainable rate” (qtd. in “Vegetarianism”).

Food availability decline theory is vulnerable to criticism because it confined on food availability at local levels instead of including assessments on food availability at aggregate or macro levels. They argued that the crop failures due to natural disasters often result in high food prices, increased demand to deal with uncertainties.

Introduction People tend to consume a lot, when there is consumption, there is waste – and that waste becomes a big problem that needs taken care of, which costs a lot of time, space and resources. If not managed, in turn, the world that we live in will become a hazardous place for all living things. According to the World Bank, people throughout the world, “spend $2.3 trillion a year on food and beverages alone” (Global Consumption Database, 2018), that is quite a lot. In addition to that, the world count mentions that, “we throw out over 50 tons of household waste every second. A number that will double by 2030” (The World Counts, 2018).
The weaknesses demonstrated by Amazon to acquire Whole Foods for 13.7 Billion are disadvantages where Amazon can improve. Firstly, Amazon has made a considerable financial investment to acquire Whole Foods and will limit their ability to purchase more assets in the future.

Overall, with purchasing Whole Foods, the organization will experience a hit financially, quality and quantity control for satisfying their consumers and the limited suppliers of Organic products in the grocery industry.

LITERATURE REVIEW FOOD LOSSES AND WASTES Globally, almost one-third of food produced for human consumption, that is, approximately 1.3 billion tonnes per year is either lost or wasted. The reduction of food losses and wastes (FLW) is essential for food security (HLPE, 2011; FAO, 2012a, b) and for reduction of environmental footprint of food systems (HLPE, 2012; FAO, 2012a, b). This is because FLW results in a waste of resources, and also has a significant greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint. For example, the global carbon footprint as a result of food wastage, excluding GHG emissions from land use change, has been estimated at 3.3 Gtonnes of CO2 equivalent (Vermeulen, 2012). Food losses occur in supply chains from the time of harvest and collection, to the time of delivery of the food to the retailer.
