The problem of providing an adequate food supply to feed the world's hungry is and has been a major concern among many scientists, politicians and other leaders representing many sectors of American society. As a result of such concern, every conceivable avenue is now being explored to find new ways whereby new crops and foodstuffs can be raised or developed to meet the world's demand. In Geneva, Switzerland in 1975, some members of the World Health Organization (WHO) indicated that "the continuing.increases in the world population without a comparable increase in the available amount of conventional foodstuffs must stimulate further efforts to develop new sources of food." Without question, the task of developing new food sources is clear.
