Sadly, the increase in food prices is really affecting many people around the world. There was an article here a month or two ago about people eating dirt cakes in Haiti or the Dominican Repubican because that's all they could afford.<br><br>
Egypt, which is the largest wheat importer in the world, had to increase the prices of their heavily subsidized bread... and as a result, many of that country's poor have had to cut down on what they are eating. Even with that, bread is one of the cheapest sources of food, so there have been people killed in bread riots.<br><br>
I fear that things are only going to get worse. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><br>
The BBC has a whole series on the cost of rising food prices around the world..<br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/7284196.stm" target="_blank">http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/7284196.stm</a>
