no surprise, the over population problem forces mass food production and that means more chemicals in our food. we are consuming more insecticides, artificial hormones, food preservative etc. unless your rich and can afford only organic food, we are all force to eat the common food sources that are available to the general public. i just don't understand why the subject is not scrutinized, perhaps people are afraid of the truth.

what are the drawbacks of over population? well i can list a few here: mass food production by artificial means, more solid waste and where does it all go?, where to bury the dead and why do cemeteries never get full?, lack of jobs, more crime and perversion, more cars to pollute the air, energy use which is bad now, more homeless people, more abandoned and abused children etc.

if the real estate bubble and the recession aren't enough, just wait until over population explodes to destroy humanity as we know it. we will see the it when people starr fighting and killing for food, shelter ect.
