    This is probably correct (I know I eat enough for 2 or 3 people to live off of) but it doesn't state the full reality.

    Are the rich in the world willing to give up that standard of living for others? (And when I say rich I am talking about the majority of the industrialized world)

    And before that question actually becomes important there is a much larger issue at hand. The infrastructure does not exist in the places that most need the food to get it there.
    Even if we gave more food away (we already do a lot) it would still be too expensive for the target audience by the time it got there-- transportation costs.

    The answer is bioengineered crops. These will make it possible for anyone, anywhere to grow what they need. It will also solve a lot of other problems (they are working on plants that will supply immunizations, etc.)

    I heard something the other day I liked-- "Live simply so that others may simply live" I know here in the US we could do away with just a percentage of the waste that we have and help out a lot of folks.
    He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep in order to gain what he cannot lose.
