There has been an increase in GMO foods on shelves over stores and supermarkets all over the world. Since 1994, GMO foods have been a major controversial issue between the people who support them and the benefits or the people who are against them and the negative ramifications. There have been much debate on what the FDA should do about the GMO foods. If they wanted to keep them they could cause much more sickness or if they wanted to get rid of them it would take many years to take all the GMO food off the shelves and produce GMO free food. Even though GMOs have good qualities and come in great quantities around the globe they also harbor a very negative effect, especially towards the human body.
Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that provides food and services to people each year. Together this network is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization. Recently, more families and individuals begin to struggle with hunger due to the cost of living increasing and income from employers not being sufficient enough to feed and take care of a family. Price and income shifts can radically impact the poor and hungry. When prices rise, consumers often move to cheaper, less-nutritious foods, increasing the risks of micronutrient defects and other forms of malnutrition, which can have long-term unfavorable effects on people’s health, development and productivity.
It’s horrendous that while living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world we still see children starving. “One in six youngsters are at a risk of hunger because of limited or uncertain access to nutritious food” (“An Invisible Hunger”). This shows that countless houses in the U.S don’t have the basic essentials to feed a child. There are millions of ravenous kids in the U.S and there are very catastrophic effects because of this. “More than 17 million children are suffering from hunger in the U.S” (“Ending Childhood Hunger in America”).
How can cloning help solve world hunger? World hunger has been a widely spread problem all around the world The whole issue is that hunger exists in rich, wealthy countries as well as in poor countries. 795 million people do not have enough to eat, which is 1 out of 9 people. World hunger affects people in big cities, small towns and rural areas. Hunger is at its worst in Asia, where 525.6 million people don’t have enough food.
Today, this issue is due to many more reasons than the dust bowl ruining many things. Focusing on America, our population has grown insanely high since the “dirty thirties”. While population has risen, so have prices. The price on many, many products have gone up in the last decade, making people with a lower pay struggle with living. It’s crazy how many people are unemployed in the US right now and with people believing there will be an 80% stock market crash in 2016, things could only get worse.
The food inequality in America is not only influencing the poverty, it is also cost hundreds of billions of dollar per year because of Non Communicable Diseases (NDCs) (Ferdman, 2014). In addition, many people think that wealthy consume more food so they are easy to get obesity, diabetes or heart disease. In fact, in America, the low-income groups have the highest rates in NDCs. According to the worldwide study, there are a connection between NCDs and the socio-economic levels link to the energy in America’s meals and the cost of meals. The American has average income spend less than $8 per person per day for their meals and beverages.
With our population increasing rapidly, pollution is a problem of increasing proportions (Spellman, F., 1999). The huge increase in size of the human population have resulted in a substantial degradation of environmental conditions (Birdsall, N., 2003). Water Pollution. According to the Population Institute, one of the consequences of overpopulation is the pressure that is put on available water resources in order to serve a growing population. Approximately 50% of the worlds’ population will be living in regions around the globe that are considered “water stressed”, either due to lack of it, or poor quality, by the year 2030 (compared to 15% currently).
According to the royal society, between1930 and 2010 the world’s population grew from 2 billion to 6.8 billion ,so the Continuing population causes a consumption growth and that means the global demand will increase over the next years and growing competition for land, water and energy will increase too(Black, 2010). Growth of population will affect on some countries ability to produce food especially in the poor developing countries, so improved nutrition is central to improved income generation, poverty reduction, and provide a good food quality. Lack of food quality has an impact on mother’s nourishment because they are more likely to give a birth, so mothers which are malnourished later will give birth of babies with a less healthier, growth retardation are associated with reduced physical activity, impairment of
Between now and 2050, the global population is projected to rise from 7.2 billion to 9.6 billion. Almost all of that population growth will occur in the developing world, where about 870 million people are already suffering from hunger and malnutrition (Van Montagu). The question of how to nourish two billion more people in a changing climate will prove one of the greatest challenges in human history. To meet it, we should embrace an agricultural approach that combines the best features of traditional farming with the latest technology. The current popular attitude against all things genetically modified is totally unfounded, and will prove to be disastrous if used to stifle research and development of new ways to produce more crops in an environmentally sustainable way.
A Global Problem: Food Waste From a global perspective, the world is wasting food at a staggering rate, resulting in the lost potential for feeding the disadvantaged as well as impacting the natural order of wildlife and contributing to climate change. Consequently, through this tragedy the world has the opportunity to find methods of reducing food waste. The world 's annual value of food wasted totals 750 billion dollars. This costly food waste comes in two main factors, waste and loss. Factor one includes food waste by restaurants throwing away uneaten food.
