ABSTRACT
Alimentary safety and food crisis represents the main problems that humanity faces nowadays. Last 40 years are defined by a rate of agricultural production growth higher than the population rate of growth. However productivity has increased more in the developed countries while those developing have just kept pace with population growth. Humanity has made huge steps on the line of search, knowledge and attraction of new alimentary sources. From an absolute point of view, resources have continuously increased and diversified, but compared to population's needs growth and diversifying resources they have always been limited. I believe there is a straight connection between food crisis and alimentary safety. Lack of alimentary safety can lead to food crisis.
