Famines and Pestilences
“And there will be famines, pestilences,...”
At the dawn of the new millennium of planet earth, discussing subjects like "Famines and Pestilences", may appear to most people irrelevant at best, or otherwise a distant echo of medieval times gone by.
Our malls, supermarkets mega markets and corner stores, filled of every kind of useful and useless goods, both edible and non, stand proudly as cathedrals to the contemporary religion of individual shop-till-you-drop consumption. Mankind never had it so good. Same with medical care. We have Hospitals where a form of modern magic takes place: you get in sick and get out healed, (well, that's debatable, but that is the general idea). So, talking about famines and pestilences seems a scurrilous subject
But the music is about to change, and it may do so rather rapidly. The Word warns us that in the End Times, in which we are living, famines and deseases will take place in large scale around the world. This present golden era of going to the store and being able to choose over 100 different kinds and flavours of yougurt (of Hollywood movie fame) or gong to a hospital to get magical medications and robot-guided surgeries, is soon going to be a thing of the past.
Climate extremes are one of the main reasons behind the increase. Explore the digital report on The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World that explains the latest numbers on hunger.

Infectious diseases whose incidence in humans has increased in the past 2 decades or threatens to increase in the near future have been defined as "emerging." These diseases, which respect no national boundaries, include:
New infections resulting from changes or evolution of existing organisms, known infections spreading to new geographic areas or populations, previously unrecognized infections appearing in areas undergoing ecologic transformation, old infections reemerging as a result of antimicrobial resistance in known agents or breakdowns in public health measures.
