More often than not people are ready and will to jump to conclusions, especially when it comes to subjects that they really don’t know a whole lot about. This seems to be most apparent when considering the continuing debates over conventional versus organic farming, gmo’s and animal ag practices. While so many are busy debating agriculture practices and food production issues, millions of people around the world continue to watch their loved ones slowly succumb to the ravages of starvation. It’s easy to argue over how one thinks crops should be grown and cultivated or whether animals should be raised for human consumption when one has a full stomach. The world’s population topped 7.1 billion at the beginning of this year and is predicted to double in the next fifty to sixty years. It’s not farfetched then to consider real food shortages extending beyond third world countries and encroaching on our shores. Ensuring adequate food supplies for generations to come is going to be challenging at best. There is room for organically grown, conventionally grown, and gmo foods in the consumer marketplace - there has to be.
