The Global Food Chain Faces Major Decline

By: Curtis Wayne   2/13/2019

Apparently the global food production is facing yet another possible decline.

New research is saying that because of the chemicals used to produce food, the insects are being killed at a very high rate.  Insects are the primary food for animals higher up the food chain like birds, reptiles and fish.  If insects continue to their current extinction rate of 2.5%, the global food production will drop by 25% in the next 10 years.

“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.”

Of course the problem is that the new advancements in food production over the last decade was needed to be able to keep up with the population growth.  If we stop using chemicals, food production will drop and costs will drastically increase.  And if we continue using chemicals, the entire food chain will drop, as the insects continue to drop.

Either way, food prices are going to be increasing.
