Earth may not consist enough fruits and veggies for all living beings, as the most recent study suggests. The demand of vegetables and fruits may surpass the supply, and that may turn into a stressing situation in the coming times, the researchers of the study said.
Researchers compared worldwide agricultural production along with nutritionists’ utilization proposals and found a confound of extraordinary level. The findings of the research have been disclosed in the journal PLOS ONE.
To conduct research, the researchers computed how much land is as of now utilized for farming and what amount would be required if everybody pursued the nutritional recommendations. They at that point anticipated those numbers for 2050, when the worldwide populace is required to achieve 9.8 billion.
Co-author of the study, Evan Fraser said in a statement that, “We simply can’t all adopt a healthy diet under the current global agriculture system. Results show that the global system currently overproduces grains, fats, and sugars, while production of fruits and vegetables and, to a smaller degree, protein is not sufficient to meet the nutritional needs of the current population.”
The findings uncovered that we are right now delivering 12 servings of grains for every individual rather than the suggested eight. That is, five servings of fruits and vegetables rather than 15, three servings of oil and fat rather than one, three servings of protein rather than five, and four servings of sugar rather than none.
Fraser further added, “What we are producing at a global level is not what we should be producing according to nutritionists.”
