Global Foodies Fact-3
In the present scenario, there is sufficient food being produced to meet everyone's requirements.
But to much dismay, a lot of food is wasted by a segment of the population delving into overconsumption, using crops for energy production and feeding of cattle.
M.K. Gandhi once stated "The world has enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed".
Global Foodies Fact-2
Conventional crops require about 1 litre of water per calorie. This implies 1300 litres of water demarcated solely for growing food per person in a day.
The daily water used by an average US citizen is about 400 litres.
This implies the water used in agriculture is four times the amount of water used for all other day to day activities.
This surfaces the rapacious water requirement of convention farming.
