The truth about the food shortage...

Wednesday, November 22, 2006

If the best current knowledge were employed, enough food to feed the four billion people could be grown in the southern half of the Sudan! It is only the Western bias, the idea spread throughout the world that one must eat white grain and drink soda pop to be "civilized," that is responsible for the suffering of the millions of starving people in the world. It is a myth that there is not enough to go around, that there is no way the Earth can support its exploding population. The truth is that most of the world's food resources are controlled by a handful of greedy men, who deny people the right to grow food for themselves but try to sell them Western-produced junk instead. [Some experts] estimate that if all the arable land on earth were used properly and sowed with foods for human consumption, the Earth could support 60 billion people--almost fifteen times our current population! But it is true that there is no way we can feed the world population on Whoppers and Cheez-Wiz, let alone nourish it. - Paul Stitt Fighting the Food Giants

  1. It's just CRAZY that people do so much shopping from the inner aisles of the grocery store, rather than picking 90% of their groceries from the perimeters.

    I really think all that stuff in the middle is contributing greatly to the frequency of major illnesses these days.

    What else could it be? Our air and water supposedly are CLEANER than when we were growing up but people are sicker?? This is the only thing that really makes sense.
