Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The meaning of population pressure is discussed and, with the help of a formula, its five main components (people, rate of increase of people, food-producing acreage, protein nutrition and industrialization) are analyzed.Factors which have eased population pressure in the past are considered under the headings of political violence (war and genocide), natural disaster (famine and disease), and social action (increased local protein supply, emigration, industrialization and birth control).Birth control is the first prerequisite to an easing of population pressure; the effectiveness of the Japanese and the Indian programs is discussed.The crippling burden of preventable disease, shown to be a major obstacle to the development of sophisticated industries, presents a challenge to Western medical men who so far have done little to meet it.
