Can Science feed the world? Over 8 x 108 (18% of the population in the developing world) are living in uncertainty of their next full meal. And 1.85 x 108 million preschool children suffer compromised mental and physical development because of malnutrition. About 8 x 107 people are expected to be added to the global population every year for the next 25 years. Global demand for grain is projected to increase by 55% between 1990 and 2020; for livestock products, 75%; for roots and tubers, 50%.

Someone has to make that first step towards improvement, and the rest will follow.
