The World Bank President Robert Zoellick has said that a combination of worldwide diversion of crops for biofuel use, changing diets and high demand for foodstuffs have depleted global food reserves to dangerously low levels.  Mr. Zoellick forecasts higher food prices for at least the next two years. Higher prices will result in more hunger and malnutrition in developing nations or even in urbanized areas, where food may be plentiful, but residents simply cannot afford it.

President Zoellick, we thank you for alerting us to the dire situation facing many of our brethren around the globe. May countries the world over urge their citizens to adopt a plant-based vegetarian (vegan) diet for a more sustainable and efficient use of our grain supply.
