THE END OF HUNGER IN SIGHT
Moringa wonder-plant brings food security to Africa and Asia
Global poverty has been in decline for 25 years, and now hunger and malnutrition are a thing of the past, world-wide.
Although the wonder tree, Moringa oleifera, is getting all the credit, it’s really a combination of advanced farming, improved global logistics, and the decline in population growth brought about by rising lifestyles.
Moringa has so many nutritional benefits, it sounds unlikely: Vitamin C, Calcium, Vitamin A, Protein and Potassium, all in abundance. Almost every part of the tree is edible, and it grows easily in the sub-tropical areas where food has been scarce.
Combined with a steadily improving lifestyle index, population growth is stabilizing and even declining. The number of people living below the poverty line is still enormous – but it’s getting smaller every year.
With energy innovations, transport and logistics are cheaper and smoother, combined with seamless communication networks that saturate the planet. It’s no wonder that education and opportunities are finally open to all. Everything is more mobile than ever – especially ideas!
And the idea about Moringa has really taken off, boosting local crops and food aid with something any rural household can cultivate and consume themselves. The world can finally celebrate – we’ve beaten hunger!
