What do old people like to eat?

Because that is who we should figure on raising food for.  John Phipps on USFR kind of took the air out of the balloon on that oft repeated "9 billion people to feed by 2050".  It appears we`ve reached "peak child" in the world where those under 15 yrs old peaked out at 2 billion.  The population growth is coming from people living longer.

As long as I can get store bought teeth I still like T-bones and rib eyes.

Switch our exports to food boxes , maybe - then we can say we are feeding the world, maybe ?
