The following article was originally posted on April 25, 2010 predicting substantial food price inflation in the US and globally. It seems like that which was then in the future is now in the present. The following report from Fox News in Jan. 2011 confirms that which many people had expected to see happening sometime this year or in 2012. I believe what we are witnessing today is still the preview - the actual FOOD CRISIS, rather FOOD CATASTROPHE is yet in the future, and will not come into full view till the summer of 2012. On an individual basis, people yet have time to stock up on essential food supplies, that are yet relatively cheap in developed countries, especially the US and Canada. I believe we will see the day in the next 4-5 years when food will be more valuable than gold. The following article and two video News reports are updates to the original article and confirm what many, myself included, were forecasting in 2009 – 2010.

U.S. Food Inflation Spiraling Out of Control -- FORT LEE, N.J., April 22 /PRNewswire/ --
Just a follow up on articles I have been writing this past year on coming Food shortages and Food price inflation across the world. Sign of the times? The above link is to a story about food cost inflation in the US (and simultaneously occurring in Canada.) As reported over the course of last year, food prices in India have been rising at historic levels and with 1/6th of the world's population to feed, this could easily turn into a major catastrophe.
India's Food price inflation holds near 11 year high
The book of Revelation prophesies about the time of the 'Apocalypse' when food shortages and famine will devastate the world. Please see my previous article, Famines in Diverse Places...
Revelation 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

ECONOMIC UPDATE: Party over for nations living good life, IMF...
The world is changing before our eyes in ways I have never witnessed in my 50 or so years. People have been screaming 'THE END' for a long time but what we are witnessing now may indeed signal the beginning of the end. But is anyone paying attention? People have an 'ostrich head in the sand' mentality when it comes to information that may disturb their ever so carefully crafted world in even the slightest manner. History teaches that we are not really in as much control of our lives as we tend to believe and I am of the opinion that the Matrix world most people live in is about to come crashing down on their heads, just as the dirty 30's wiped out the fun 'n' games lifestyle of the roaring 20's. It seems unimaginable for the majority in wealthy nations that they may face days of hunger and lack, but if history teaches anything it teaches that from Sumer to Babylon to Egypt to Persia to Greece to Rome, the party always come to an end, most often violently, and most often with the majority completely unprepared for the end. There is no doubt that this party too will end soon, the only question is how bad will the hangover be?
