Myths and Realities behind Rising Food Prices

Anyone who buys groceries or eats in a restaurant knows that food prices have increased, but few people truly understand the global factors that are driving the present situation. There are those who point the finger at the cost of agricultural products, and some would even have you believe that the use of farm products to produce biofuels is depriving people of food. However, a closer look at the facts shows otherwise, and false claims can be strongly disputed by well-informed people.
