A Growing Population Needs A New Approach
This motif has been retired and will not be subject to further updates. What some might think of as creepy could save thousands of lives. Genetically Modified Foods (GMF) are vital to addressing global hunger. GMF can increase crop yields, offer pest and disease-resistance strains, and grow crops on land challenged by drought or depleted soils.
Plus, increasing demand for high-quality calories, such as meat and dairy, is coming from the growing global middle class—over 1B people in China and India by 2025. Estimates for 60% world population growth and a 15% increase in calories per capita will more than double the demand for food in the next 50 years. Which means a little weird science could be just what we need in a world hungry for answers.
