Population scientists estimate that if current trends continue, there will be 9.6 billion humans living on the planet by 2050. How to feed them all is the largest and most pressing global political, economic, and social issue facing our world today.
Over the last year, National Geographic magazine has been going in-depth on global food issues, providing some of the most interesting, provocative and balanced coverage of highly charged topics like GMO technology, land rights, availability of water, industrial vs "paleo" diet patterns, overfishing, ancient grains and edible insects, food labeling, organic versus conventional farming, and the benefits versus costs of industrialized agriculture.
From now until Nov 16, the National Geographic Society is offering a definitive compilation of the best of its Future of Food coverage as an interactive magazine via the iTunes store. Check it out at: www.natgeofoodapp.com
