Why does the population of rainforest tribes not grow a lot?

    Many factors contribute to the exclusion of rainforest tribes from the massive population boom we have seen recently around the globe.  First, they do not utilize western agricultural widely.  Some tribes cultivate their own food, but on a much smaller scale.  This limits the number of people that their tribe can support, automatically putting a cap on the population.  Secondly, indigenous tribes are much more susceptible to disease.  They do not have access to modern medicine, so they are much more likely to die from an illness or infection, keeping their population in check. Along with these reasons, indigineous people are often very intune with nature and realize the dangers of trying to overpopulate their small territory, for it would throw off the balance of nature.
