Food Problem and Malthus Theory

Food Problem and Malthus Theory


The food problems theory raised by Malthus is ever increasing population concerns that are not balanced by the increase in food production. Malthus' theory predicted that population growth will follow a geometric progression (1, 2, 4, 16 etc.),while food production increases arithmetically just following the addition of (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.).

Unrevealed Theory

Furthermore, if the availability of food is not sufficient for human life, there will be a various dangers, such as the dangers of malnutrition, illness, death, social riots. In fact, Malhtus' theory has not happened or will not happen because humans afford to control the population growth through family planning programs, and food can be increased many folds not according arithmetically. Various food increment efforts continue to be made resulted in adequate human food, as the effort to diversify food. For instance, Breadfruit substitutes for other carbohydrates (paddy, potatoes, wheat, etc.), human may take family of taro and other tubers.  And the Almighty God has secured the food for His creatures in the universe." And no moving (living) creature is there on earth but its provision is due from Allah:  (The  Quran, Surah Hud verse 6)


Food and Nutrition
In an effort to improve human health and save mankind from the danger of hunger and malnutrition continuous researches on staple food and nutrition are being carried and have make a solution to Malthus theory. Food is edible materials to meet the daily energy requirements for maintenance, growth, employment, and replacement of damaged body cells. Food can also be interpreted as a source of nutrition. Human life is not possible without the availability of food. So to sustain human life, then humans should eat in moderation and meet nutrition. Food is the most basic human needs or basic needs (basic need). Food sector as a source of materials (substances) nutrition is a strategic sector, this is caused by:

1 Food products (especially agriculture) is a mass industry.
Food sector is an industry and mass involving many people, both in the production process, and distribution. Indonesian rice production increament activities in 1995 had involved 20 million farmers where 59% of them are posses less than 0.75 ha of land. For them food sector is the source of life and livelihood.

2. Food consumed by all classes / levels of society. The greater the number of members of a family will consume more and more food and food ingredients. Based on the fulfillment of food, people can be divided into two groups:

A. Group of people whose lives in difficult:

The main problem faced by this group is how to keep the limited purchasing power, they can support their lives as well as possible. Such communities are vulnerable to malnutrition, malnutrition both calorie and protein nutrition. Government program to provide cheap food for the group is expected to not only oriented to the fulfillment of calories, but it should be balanced with the provision of nutrition programs for community groups this protein.

B. Group of people who belong to be lucky.

Who can buy any kind of food he wants unlimited amount so that nutrition can be guaranteed. Malnutrition in this group are often caused by excessive food consumption. Thus emerging diseases or disorders of the have such as; hyperglycemia, hyper cholesterolemia, hyper triglyceridemia, obesity, and so forth.

On the other hand food can also affect the stability of political, social and peace and security problems. Food scarcity will lead to actions that could destabilize other components. People without adequate food will occur resulting in a State starvation be disturbed either economic stability, socio-cultural, defense and security, and political. This is because that all aspects is a unitary system of interrelated and can not be separated from one another.

Malthus theory is not revealed, and we have to make all the efforts to keep the food security for all in the world. The Almighty God has secured the food for all His creature.

Jabbar Sidiq Al Hadi said...

healthy is expensive
therefore we are encouraged to keep our bodies from disease threats.
one of them is by eating nutritious food, and managing a healthy life.
thus, even if we are rich or poor among us would be the furthest from the threat of disease

I agree, i think malthus theory isn't revealed, because not all people who have many children don't meet their needs, furthermore if we have found a new technology that can improve food and nutrition with cheap price then people whose lives are difficult meet their needs, because foods are very important for our daily activity.

very dense populations causing food becomes scarce, because food was scarce and humans can not be satisfying need it will cause various diseases, therefore to address the problem of food that can not meet the needs of the population it is necessary to its new technologies are cheap and can improve food, for a healthy life, we need to consume food that is nutritious and manage a healthy life and to prevent the population explosion there needs to be a program of his family plan.

I think as an agricultural student we must be able to prove that the Malthusian theory is not quite right. because to increased agricultural production is believed to be able to meet the food needs so no need to fear starvation.

Teuku Arif Hidayat said...

i agree with your opinion, rusdi. KB is one of the solutions of the human population continues to increase.

In my opinion, this is indeed true Malthus theory that population growth will follow a geometric progression (1, 2, 4, 16 etc.) while the increase in food production only arithmetically following the addition of (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Thus the very influential role of government to balance between the exponential population growth with the exponential increase in food production so that our people can fulfill their needs, when it needs are met, then the problem of food and nutrition it can at least be reduced. Methods of food was very good compliance can be applied in our country

I think to solve the issue of food we need to do a land management and the cropping patterns, so that the quality and quantity can meet the needs of society, and family planning is the last way to solve this problem.

My opinion about folowing 'birth control' program is quite effective. But how to provide enough food and nutrition is creating new technologies and finding a way to make people aware about their nutrition.

I often read the same article, I think this is the most serious problem facing the world agriculture today. So as a student agro technology, we should be able to increase the number of food products coupled with increases in population. (JANUZAJ)

agus budiman said...

at the time of such sophisticated nowadays, it is not impossible that the Malthusian theory can be broken. So I agree with the article that this write Subandi m.

In addition, I also agree that food scarcity is a very large influence on the stability of human life in the world. for example, two world wars that occurred in the nineteenth century one of the causes is the food problem. (Dagrod )

In the end, foods is important thing. we need food to life but we don't know how health and composition our food are. So we must know how much we need food for our body to make it healthy and work. People can manage what they and their family eat. if tthey are are poor they can manage what they can eat, cheap but healthy. if they are wealthy they can manage easier, because they can eat whatever they want. But you must know how to stop or to start, because you dont want to excess or lack.
Population growth is not in line with the growth of the fulfillment of food. So we have to do something about this. This article says the solution is birth control. With control of birth we can reduce the rate of population growth. On the other hand, the fulfillment of the needs of food should always be upgraded. one of way is the application of technology.
In the word, Foods can make people 'mad'.

Malthusian theory is debatable, but if I take this all back again kepribadi each because if we can manage our natural resources Milki well then this incident would not have happened even hunger,, though we have a lot of family members.

but otherwise, if we are not able to manage the natural resources that we have here the last road to avoid adverse events Indonesian society is to support the government in the form of programs KB.

fitri yani said...

I think even though many members of the family but can manage natural resources and human resources are properly it will not cause harm ... but I also support government programs that held a planning program and thus be able to create quality human and potential.

To deal with food shortages then we must restore Indonesia as an agricultural country that uses technology

I think so, we have to develop food production for food security all over the world
