Where and how much is the pressure of population?

According to the United Nations, the two most populous regions of the world in 2022 were East and South-East Asia with a population of 2300 million (29%).

According to experts five main reasons for increasing population

1. The disparity between the normal birth and death rates in a population is what causes overpopulation. The population will be stable if the number of children born each year is approximately equal to the number of people who die in that year.

2. The second main reason for the increase in population is the agricultural reforms made in the 20th century through the use of pesticides and fertilizers, which allowed humanity to produce more on less land. Humans now have easy access to food, which has led to an increase in population, although millions still die of starvation today.

3. The third reason is that the development of vaccines treated diseases that previously killed thousands of people. Means better health facilities.

4. The fourth main reason is the lack of education and information among people which is very important for population control.

5. The next reason is technological advancement, and advancement in the medical field due to which effective medicines are available which can increase the chances of conception and increase the birth rate. In addition, pregnancy and childbirth are much safer today because of modern technology.
