Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
How to Feed the World

Steve Jones, Emeritus Professor of Genetics at University College London, believes that with a growing population of now at seven billion people, a better way to feed the world needs to be found. According to Jones, we should stop fattening animals to feed people and instead divert that grain to feed people directly.

The amount of agricultural land, already scarce around the world, is used mainly to grow food to feed farmed animals. This use of land is wasteful and it also leads to the destruction of grasslands and rainforests. Please visit Global population reaches 7 billion: can we really feed the world?:

The higher we eat on the food pyramid, the fewer people get fed. On the same token, the lower we eat on the food pyramid, the more people get fed. Unless we embrace this simple fact, billions of people will continue to go malnourished every year. Our Christian faith calls us to feed the poor and the hungry, and adopting a plant-based diet might be one of the most effective ways to do it.
