Half of all food is wasted

LONDON, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Up to half of all the food produced worldwide ends up going to waste due to poor harvesting, storage and transport methods as well as irresponsible retailer and consumer behaviour, a report said on Thursday.

The world produces about four billion metric tonnes of food a year but 1.2 to 2 billion tonnes is not eaten, the study by the London-based Institution of Mechanical Engineers said.

"This level of wastage is a tragedy that cannot continue if we are to succeed in the challenge of sustainably meeting our future food demands," said.

In developed countries, like Britain, efficient farming methods, transport and storage mean that most of the wastage occurs through retail and customer behaviour.

Retailers produce 1.6 million tonnes of food waste a year because they reject crops of edible fruit and vegetables because they do not meet exacting size and appearance criteria, the report by the engineering society said.

"Thirty percent of what is harvested from the field never actually reaches the marketplace (primarily the supermarket) due to trimming, quality selection and failure to conform to purely cosmetic criteria," it said.

Of the food which does reach supermarket shelves, 30-50 percent of what is bought in developed countries is thrown away by customers, often due to poor understanding of "best before" and "use by" dates.

A "use by" date is when there is a health risk associated with using food after that date. A "best before" date is more about quality - when it expires it does not necessarily mean food is harmful but it may lose some flavour and texture.

However, many consumers do not know the difference between the labels and bin food after "best before" dates.

Promotional offers and bulk discounts also encourage shoppers to buy large quantities in excess of their needs.

In Britain, about 10.2 billion pounds' ($16.3 billion) worth of food is thrown away from homes every year, with one billion pounds' worth being perfectly edible, the report found.

By contrast, in less developed countries, such as in sub-Saharan Africa or South East Asia, wastage mostly happens due to inefficient harvesting and poor handling and storage.

In South-East Asian countries, for example, losses of rice range from 37 to 80 percent of their entire production, totalling about 180 million tonnes per year, the report said.

The United Nations predicts global population will peak at around 9.5 billion people by 2075, meaning there will be an additional 2.5 billion people to feed.

The real Holocaust that never taught

The real Holocaust that you were never taught about an School

Communism was invented by Jewish Karl Mark, Lev Davidovich Bronshtein who was Jewish, changed his name to Leon Trotsky to sound more Russian, Joseph Stalin was a Georgian Jew and many others. When will the Jewish community apologize to the Russian people?

Trotsky—Lenin Holocaust forms part of the Red Holocaust which took place from the initial enslavement of the Russian Empire under Bolshevism in 1917, up until the death of Vladimir Lenin in 1924. It has been estimated that 13 million Christians were exterminated during this time and almost all of the positions of power were in the hands of Jews. Most notably the Red Army was controlled by Leon Trotsky, while the state itself was headed by Lenin. Some of the most high-profile victims of this phase of the Red Holocaust were Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and his entire family. Much of this was carried out under the pseudo-rationale of "class war" (sometimes called the Red Terror), despite the fact that most of the Jews in positions of control were university educated and from middle-class backgrounds.

"For pure murderous evil, there has never been a force to compare with Communism and Leon Trotsky. The Nazis didn't come close. The Holocaust was uniquely malignant - never before or since did one people construct a vast industry of death for the sole purpose of rounding up and destroying every single member of another people.The Communist Russians under orders and overseen by Trotsky,killed so may Christians the death toll surpasses 100 million." - (Originally From: TO THE VICTIMS OF COMMUNISM, LEST WE FORGET By Jeff Jacoby The Boston Globe December 7, 1995 which has dropped off of the web but may be accessed now at information on the amount Of Killing done by Russian Jews from the 1920s to 1940s is documented in the Library of Congress.Many Millions of People world wide,especially Christians are learning the supposed Holocaust by Hitler was nothing compared to what Soviet Jews did to Christians (and also to the million Muslim who live under Soviet that time).This truth will come out and the Jewish media will no longer surpress the truth about "The REAL Holocaust'!

Lev Davidovich Bronstein (7 November 1879—21 August 1940), better known as Leon Trotsky, was a communist Jew, mass murderer and Marxist ideologue, born to a wealthy land-owning family in the Ukraine. An international subversive and Bolshevik politician during the early years, he is perhaps best known as the founder of the Red Army, as well as for his criminal role in the Red Holocaust against Russians and other gentiles. After the Judeo-Bolsheviks enslaved Russia and created the Soviet Empire, Trotsky acted as Commissar of Foreign Affairs and later Commissar of Military and Naval Affairs. He was among the first members of the Politburo, represented as a full member between 1917 and 1926 .
Funded by Jacob Schiff and Max Warburg,[1][2] Trotsky was the prefered candidate for the international bankers and after conspiring against Joseph Stalin was expelled from the Communist Party and deported from the Soviet Empire in the Great Purge. As the head of the Fourth International, he continued in exile to be jealous of Stalin's power in the Soviet Empire, and was eventually eliminated in Mexico by Ramón Mercader, a Soviet agent.[3] Trotsky's ideas form the basis of Trotskyism, one of the most potently Jewish variations of communist theory, which remains a major school of Marxism. It advocates "Permanent Revolution", rather than the gradualist approach of Stalin's partisans.
