Biotechnology and GMOs will definitely help world hunger, to say the least. GMOs are completely safe - people have been altering their food technologically, in the sense of using tools, for thousands of years. The population has exploded over the past 200 years yet, as a percentage of the population, there are fewer hungry people today.
Biotech food technology will help cure world hunger. Theses plants have been modified so that they will provide more food and less waste. They are also more immune to diseases and will not die as easily in harsh weather conditions. This is why biotech food will be the cure for world hunger,
Biotech food technology will cure world hunger. This is because of the fact that engineered foods can be anything if designed correctly. People can have whatever they want, and the entire world will have more than enough food with the right engineering behind the food itself. Technology will save us with biotech food.
Yes, biotech food technology will cure world hunger, if scientists and world leaders make sure that it is distributed properly. Biotech fuel has great capability for foor production in terms of volume and efficiency. It can create plenty of food for everyone in the entire world, we just need to make sure that we can distribute the food to the people who need it.
The implementation of biotechnological procedures has resulted in a wide range of crops that yield high energy, at low production costs. This is primarily important given that most areas with higher hunger rates have a set of limiting resources, like time needed for harvesting and water, that is discordant with the needs of traditional crops in those aspects. At the same time, biotechnological engineered food could include, in itself, a vast variety of nutrients that could not be delivered to populations in the necessary amounts for an adequate nutrition in any other form.
World hunger is a complex problem. Biotech food that has been modified from its natural form will help. Population controls and food distribution are needed to feed 7 billion people. In today's modern world, there is no excuse for hungry citizens. There is plenty of food and money, the problem is that it isn't being distributed to those who need it. Crops that grow in certain areas or that are less prone to bugs and drought will help with crop yields. But more food is only part of the answer.
I feel that biotech food technology would significantly help cure world hunger, as it makes it possible to deliver large amounts of easily produced food to areas in the world which are devoid of resources and farm land. With limited resources available, biotech food technology seems to be the most logical choice to help fight world hunger and deliver food to depressed areas.
I do not think it will be possible anytime soon if at all ever to cure world hunger. It will be nearly impossible to reach every single person in the world and make sure they have food. Their could be people in the woods and hills that we do not know about.
No, biotech food will not cure world hunger. Right here in the United States there are families that have nothing to eat and will not have any thing for days on end. Yet we, as a country, are trying to fix world hunger with science bred foods. The world is too selfish to end world hunger or try for world peace because that is just not profitable.
While biotech food technology will allow even more food to be produced, most of the time, the actual production of food isn't the problem. Famines happen largely because of political and economic reasons. For example, if the export price of food is much higher than what it can be sold for domestically, farmers will export even if the local population is starving. Solving these political and economic issues is the real key to ending world hunger.
The fact that must be faced squarely is that the indigenous populations of the advanced nations are not growing much if at all, while those in the third world are exploding, along with many first generation immigrant populations in America and Europe.
If you look at a chart of population growth over the last few centuries, you'll see that the human population remained stable for centuries, then exploded after around 1900, with the advent of modern medicine; but in the advanced world the advance of women's rights and effective contraception kept the lid on population explosion. Not so in the countries where women have few if no rights--especially those dominated by certain backward religions.
Environmentalists considered overpopulation to be a key issue until the 1970s, when they joined with religious conservatives in opposing any limits to population. That's when most environmentalists became enemise of the environment, and of our planet's future, and that of future generations, sacrificing them to short-sighted sentimentality.
How these people think the human population can keep expanding infinitely is beyond me. It just shows how little science education the average liberal arts college graduate gets.
On the surface it would seem that this would be able to feed more people, and in a way you'd be right. BUT......the quality of the food, that is to say the nutrition or lack thereof that is contained in it, would be much lower and as such the hunger wouldn't truly go down or be reduced like if they were given healthy, nutritious food. It may sustain them for a period but soon they will need more, and it will create a vicious cycle without end.
So no I don't think biotech food technology in the long run would help the world hunger problem.
