Is The World Really Overpopulated?
Many people around the world still seem to think there is sufficient land to be able to provide for all of humanity! And to a degree their somewhat flawed argument, is correct! As long as we wish to continue producing GMO food and using extreme farming methods. Because “There is insufficient land to produce 100% organic and sustainable food supplies.”
Yes we agree that we do throw away vast quantities of food within the western world, most of which is flooded with chemicals & irradiated, because chemical processes are needed to produce enough food for the current population. Although with the continual increase of the population this will become harder and harder.
Nature was designed to produce everything we need and it is only when humankind messes about with it that we have problems; like resistant weeds, bugs and viruses. Due to mans interference with nature, and lets face the facts, the majority of scientists involved with this kind of ‘research’ (and I use the term loosely) are in fact men!
It has been stated that there is sufficient room on the continents for all humankind, however many people seem to forget that not all of the land mass is habitable. Some areas like deserts, lakes, mountains and ice caps are not suitable for human habitation and cultivation. Also in order to provide sufficient land to cultivate crops and animals you would have to de-forest the entire planet. This of course would have a devastating effect on oxygen production.
It has also been stated by many vegetarian and vegan groups that everyone should stop eating meat.
It is our opinion that non-organic food is not strictly speaking, ‘food’ at all, as it contains little or no nutritional value.
Under ‘Codex Alimentarius’ (see their website http://www.codexalimentarius.org) all food (including a lot of ‘Organic’ produce) is irradiated, which again removes a lot of the nutritional value.
As more and more food being produced is non-organic and irradiated the more unhealthy the people will become. This will lead to malnutrition, suppressed or useless immune systems and ultimately death (just look at the ‘3rd world’).
Isn't it better to have a healthy population who eat only organic food, or as our Grandparents called it 'food'. Than have masses and masses of unhealthy people who are a drain on the resources and give nothing back, as they are too ill and weak to do anything?
And if we gave more land over to food production it would in turn mean you would all have to live in much smaller compact housing - do you really want to be forced to live in a kennel?
There will be no room for recreational spaces. No room for theatres, sports stadiums, shopping centres, parks, roads, manufacturing buildings etc etc. A grim world is ahead of us, if we continue on this path of selfish destruction and over consumption of resources.
