In a world where many people do not have the sufficient amount of food (under-nourished), what could we do to reduce this problem? The world's food crisis deepens as we consume too much food, especially meat. If every single person eats the average amount of meat eaten by a British person then we would need around about 6 planet earths to fill up enough land to provide food for all the population. Therefore there is no way we can feed the world's population with enough meat to survive, it is just not possible. We would also be wasting a lot of energy in production of feeding and caring for animals and so a lot of energy would be wasted. ...read more.


If more people eat less meat and more rice we are on our way to solving the problem. The problem with meat is that, the shorter the food chain, the less energy will be lost. It is therefore more efficient for us to eat plants than it is to eat animals. We can produce meat more efficiently by preventing the animal from moving so it doesn't waste energy on movement. However this is seen as cruelty by many people and is controversial. Keeping the animal at a warmer temperature so it doesn't use as much energy from food to keep itself at a constant temperature. With the meat we just need to be conservative and make sure people eat meat but only a small proportion so that the whole population are able to eat meat. ...read more.


If we do not act now we will continue to eat too much meat and waste energy. This just cannot happen and more and more people will adapt to the lifestyle of eating meat as their main source. It the amount of meat increases in third world countries and others we would not have enough animals to feed that demand. I believe if we use different sources of foods from different cultures and everyone is willing to try new foods then everyone will be able to get sufficient amounts of foods with the right nutrients. Also that would mean less people would eat meat which is very good as there is not enough meat alone to feed everyone on this planet. Therefore more people will be forced to eat plants, fruits and vegetables. These are also very healthy and can supply the same nutrients or good enough alternatives to what meat provide as nutrients. ...read more.

    When the infected mosquito bites another human, sporozoites in the mosquito's saliva transfer to the blood of the human. Sporozoites travel in the blood to the liver. In liver cells over the course of one to two weeks, the sporozoites divide repeatedly to form 30,000 to 40,000 merozoites.
