BOSTON, Sept 10 (LSN) – Despite the ability of many young people today to sift through the mountains of mythology on population control to arrive at accurate information, the highly respected National Geographic has sadly chosen not to do so. Four of the seven main features in the October edition of the magazine are devoted to the issue,stressing the need to curtail population growth around the globe. Topics include “population,” “women and population,” “feeding the planet,” and “human migration,” and the plea for population control particularly targets poor and ethnic nations.
