World Hunger May be Brought to an End

World Hunger May be Brought to an End

New plant breeding technologies can significantly contribute to global food securityAn international team of scientists believe that our growing population, suspected to be 10 million by 2050, may not be in jeopardy in regards to world hunger. New plant breeding techniques have been discovered that are more productive and environmentally friendly. Most poor and undernourished people are located in rural areas where agriculture is the main source of income as well as food. Not all places have adopted the use of genetic modification on growing plants because of its rocky past with affecting the environment in a negative way. Researchers believe that their newly discovered methods will not only improve their current food production loss due to climate and other factors but also a great increase in environmental safety. If implemented, crop yields would be at their all time high and we just might see the day where no one goes hungry.

  1. Its amazing how this research can have such a positive impact on the world. GM crops are used in agriculture where the DNA is modified using genetic methods. If this could end world hunger I dont see why anyone would oppose to it.
