Abstract: "The world population has increased 50 percent over the last half century alone. That is a staggering 3 billion more mouths to feed. Despite a serious backlash during the last year, never before have so many had food to eat. And never before have so many suffered from being overweight and obese. Both under nourishment and over eating are increasing. Through these questionable trends, vital social issues are linked with dire natural resources consequences: water and other natural resources are over-exploited, rivers are running dry, downstream ecosystems are suffocated and pollution loads are heavy in what little remains of water systems in regions worldwide."
