Voice1: The United Nations believes this simple food could change people’s lives around the world. How? Well, first, potatoes can grow in many places worldwide. Experts believe that people first ate potatoes about 8,000 years ago. The food began in areas of South America. By the 1500s, explorers there brought potatoes back to Europe. They spread quickly! And today, people grow potatoes in about 100 countries including China and India. In fact, potatoes are the world’s fourth largest food crop. The United Nations estimates that in 2006, growers around the world produced almost 315,000,000 tonnes of potatoes!

聲音1:聯合國認為這種簡單的食物可以改變世界各地人們的生活。怎么改變?首先,土豆可以在世界上很多地方種植。專家認為人們第一次吃土豆大約是在8000年前。這種食物起源于南美洲地區。到了16世紀,那里的探險家把土豆帶回了歐洲。它們迅速蔓延!今天,包括中國和印度在內的大約100個國家的人們種植土豆。事實上,土豆是世界第四大糧食作物。據聯合國估計,2006年,世界各地的土豆種植者生產了近3.15億噸土豆!

Voice2: And experts believe potatoes are becoming a very important crop for developing countries. For many years, developed countries produced and used the largest crops of potatoes. But in 2005, for the first time, developing countries produced and used more potatoes than developed countries. Today, China is the largest potato producer.

聲音2:專家認為土豆正在成為發展中國家的一種非常重要的作物。多年來,發達國家的土豆產量和使用量最大。但在2005年,發展中國家的土豆產量和使用量首次超過發達國家。今天,中國是最大的土豆生產國。

Voice1 :Second, the UN believes potatoes are so important because potatoes can feed the hungry. Many people in the world do not get enough to eat. This can be especially true of people living outside cities. Lack of food leads to poor general health.

聲音1:其次,聯合國之所以認為土豆非常重要,是因為土豆可以養活饑餓的人。世界上有很多人吃不飽飯。居住在城市之外的人尤其如此。缺乏食物導致整體健康狀況不佳。

Voice2: It can be difficult to get food to hungry people. The United Nations says that many hungry communities may have enough workers, but they may be poor or not have enough land to work on. But the potato is a perfect crop for these conditions!

聲音2:給饑餓的人們提供食物可能很困難。聯合國表示,許多饑餓的社區可能有足夠的勞動力,但他們可能很貧窮,或者沒有足夠的土地來耕種。但是土豆是滿足這些條件的完美作物!
