Infographic of the Day: How the Global Food Market Starves the Poor | Design & Innovation | Fast Company

The strangest part is that -if this video is true- I’ve been doing my part for the longest time. I mainly eat grains anyway. I eat meat once a day, if that.

  1. Probably one of the best and most logical arguments I’ve heard for vegetarianism. My boyfriend RUINED me by forcing me to eat a cheeseburger about a year and a half ago, and it was just soooooo good (I hadn’t had one since I was maybe… 10). But I’ve been thinking about cutting meat out of my diet again for a while, and this kind of sealed it for me. Thanks!

  2. It’s not just vegetarianism, it’s eating locally… and keep in mind, you still need to eat healthy. ^^ I dun want you dyin’ because you didn’t get the right amount of proteins or something in your diet, k? after all, there’s fish, poultry, and other animals that take much less in terms of input to feed.

    Not that I have anything against vegetarianism. I just recognize that the human animal is born omnivorous, no matter what our lofty intentions are.

  3. Alternatively we can continue to use GM crops and such to increase yields, stay the hell away from organic nonsense (which is often as polluting and almost never gives the same amount of food), work to change the politics and religions of poor countries (why religion? Catholics tend to be numerous in these places and they aren’t allowed birth control), and, yes improve the distribution network. It’s also worth noting that while places like Niger can’t grow massive crops of wheat and rice places like Zimbabwe and Egypt can and do. Well, not Zimbabwe so much these days, since Mugabe is a fucktard, but they can do it again once they get better leadership.
