Hunger depends on the ratio of People to Food. It has always been with us but our attitude towards it has altered during the last few centuries as we become more quickly aware of famines, more conscious of the possibility of doing something about them, and more conversant with the factors that control them. Doctors and Civil Engineers tend to preserve life whereas Farmers and Biochemists tends to increase or improve food. In relation to hunger their activities are therefore contrasting. There should be no curtailment of the activities of the first pair but compensatingly increased effort should be put into those of the second pair.
