Does the world produce enough food for everyone?

Yes, we produce enough food for everyone on the planet today. The issue is the distribution. The developed countries throw away tons of food everyday while those in the poor country cannot get access to these food. Here is a discussion of the matter. Ironically, those of us who are in the developed countries are suffering from too much food. Obesity, and the associated health issues, will become the number one killer in developed countries, if not already is the number one killer. The fast food industry gives us cheap, sugary food at a very low cost and hence biased the average intake of healthy food. The way to reverse the trend is to educate people, we must convince people that complex, multi-colour, diverse food is good for our health.
