Study: Increasein human BODY mass index will increase global population heat demand

According to a study by the University of G?ttingen in Germany, global food demand will increase by nearly 80 percent by the end of this century than in 2010 due to an upward trend in the Human Body Mass Index (BMI) and the increase in the number of people in the world. According to a study by a team at the University of Godtingen and published in the Journal of the Public Library of Science, global inequality is likely to increase if the demand for heat is not met.

According to the study, 60 per cent of the increase in the heat needed by the global population comes from population growth. The world’s population is estimated to grow from nearly 7 billion in 2010 to nearly 11 billion in 2100, according to the World Population Outlook report released by the United Nations.

However, the increase in global population demand from 2010 to the end of the century, more than 18 per cent of the estimated growth in human height and weight.

“Based on the rising bmi and height trends of humans, we estimate that by 2100, the average daily calorie intake per person worldwill will increase by 253 calories per day compared to 2010,” said Study co-author Debenbusch of the Asian-Vegetable-World Vegetable Center. “It’s equivalent to eating an extra 2 bananas or 1 serving of French fries a day.

According to the report, Stephan Klasen, a professor at Debenbusch and the University of Goettingen, said their models suggest that sub-Saharan African countries will be most affected by the huge increase in global demand for heat in the future. As the local population is growing rapidly, there has been a surge in demand for calories.

Researchers warn that a global food policy that fails to meet human demand for heat could lead to a worsening of global food and economic imbalances.
