“FOOD FOR ALL.”
We hear that the world´s population is growing so fast that we will not have enough food for everyone. People have been making these predictions for centuries, but we can stillfeed ourselves. Why? How do we grow enough food so that we can feed the almost seven billion people on our small planet? Many people say it was because of the green revolution started in mexico by norman Borlaug, who won the nobel peace prize for his work.
The green revolution, which started in the 1940s,refers to using science to make changes in agriculture so that farms could grow more crops inthe same space. The green revolution has helped the world in many different ways. Firstly, it helped to create a new science----- agricultural science----- in which scientists find and develop better quality foods to get higher yields from the crops. scientists test thousands of types of wheat, rice,and corn to find the best ones. Sometimes they create new ones by modifying the genes of plants.Secondly, this research helped farmers to grow more food to support the growing world population. Before the green revolution, Mexico did not have enough wheat and in order to feed its population it had to import foods. However, within 10 to 15 years Mexico was actually exporting wheat to other countries. Thirdly , this knowledge spread to other countries around the world. The green revolution wasintroduced to india and the Philippines with great success. It was also introduced to Africa but with less success. Overall, it has helped feed millions of people the world over.

we all know about eating well to stay healthy, but we rarely think about which foods are good for our brain. Dr fernando gomez-pinilla of the university of california says we must choose foods well tohelp our brain work effectively.
thinking ir a biochemical process. this means our brain cells communicate with chemicals called neurotransmitters. they are like the messengers of the brain. our bodies make neurotransmitters when we process proteins such as meat, fish, and cheese, but vitamins and minerals also help this process. not eating enough fruit and vegetables and eating too many fattyfoods can not only lead to health problems including heart disease and cancer , but also depression and even aggressive behavior.
carbohydrates like bread , rice, and pasta are also good for the brain. when the body processes carbohydrates, it creates glucose ( sugar), which is the brain´s main source of energy. they help create serotonin, a chemical oon, it may be the pasta you had for lunch!...
