The world's population, at nearly 6.5 billion, is growing by about 80 million people each year. As the world population continues to grow, great pressure is being placed on arable land, water, energy, and biological resources to provide an adequate supply of food while maintaining the integrity of our ecosystem. Population Growth & Health explores how the world s ever-faster growing population impacts the world s resources and the health of the world s people. The growing number of people on the planet is increasingly straining the finite supply of freshwater, food production, health-care delivery, and more. There are more hungry and ill people in the world than ever before, and at the same time, people in some countries are living longer as well. This important book looks at why and how the population is growing and what can and is being done to address the consequences. It discusses different countries population-growth policies and how international organizations, such as the United Nations, are addressing the growing imbalance between the world's population and the resources that support human lives. Population Growth & Health uses an abundance of special features to capture the interest of students: * over 60 full-color photos and illustrations * ask the expert sections, providing real answers to insightful questions * find out more sections, directing readers to additional resources * glossaries of terms at the beginning of each chapter, reinforcing important terms * real-life stories and events, providing examples to reinforce the text * excerpts from primary sources, modeling document-based questions and answers, providing cross-curriculum links.
