The Emergence of the Food Crisis Accompanying the Population ExplosionProtein Crisis
- World Population
- According to UN projections, the world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050.
- It is estimated that by 2025-2030, the supply of the world’s proteins will not be able to keep up.
Global Warming(Emission of greenhouse gasses through livestock)
- CO2 emissions from livestock farming are almost the same as those emitted by transportation, such as cars, trains, airplanes, and ships in one year.
- About 37% of the methane gas emissions, which have a greenhouse effect 21 times that of CO2, come from livestock farms.
- In 30 years, 52% of greenhouse gases will come from livestock farming.
1/3 of produce food is wasted
- The amount of food waste, including food loss, has reached 1.3 billion tons worldwide. If the annual production volume is 4 billion tons, then about one-third of that amount will be wasted.
Correlation between meat eating and carcinogenic risk
- The WHO’s specialist agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), has announced that every 50 grams (less than two slices of bacon) of processed meat, increases the probability of developing colorectal cancer by 18%.
