- Fox News, is owned by the New World Order.

- They will be trying to spread mass hysteria, with stories like this.

.. this is another example of mis-information, (for Americans), in order

to start food riots, and increase duality. Lies,.. Lies, and more lies.

.. Think for youurself,.. Don't let Fox News think for you.

The news is all lined up, you will see lots of propaganda about this,

and other shortages, from now on. Look for your-self.. Think for yourself.

.. Get Conscious,..get informed,.. be aware,.. help each other.

Victoria, China is not "communist". Communism means a society which is composed of democratic communes, cooperating with each other, without any state. Just because someone says something - e.g. "China is communist", or "the medieval crusaders were christian" - does not make it true.

Anyway, as a huge critic of capitalism, I don't trust Fox news, but I do know that the capitalist U.S.A.'s promotion of growing bio-fuels instead of food, is causing a rise in food prices, as well as food shortages, which is causing terrible problems for the hundreds of millions of poor people in the world who were already only just surviving. It's simple economics. Ask the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organisation, or read the non-capitalist media or something if you don't understand the logic.

P.S. rice prices have doubled in the last few months - at least in many parts of the world. If you pay attention to what is going on in the world, you will know this! Ask your friends in the Third World if you don't believe me - if you have any friends in the Third World, that is.

Noted! Scott,

And Simon, I heard on the evening news that rice prices had tripled and that there isn't so much a shortage [yet?], as they're not exporting their rice. And, the punishment for anyone "caught" exporting, is life in prison. Has it all come to this?

I live in the heart of farm country and the farmers switched and sold their crops to/for biofuels almost over night. BUT, I can't blame them. They are simply looking out for their families and land. Had the US had more leadership in the process, possibly much of this could have been avoided. That's MY HO, anyway.

- this is a manufactured food shortage

..just because they are creating hysteria, by raising the prices of everything, Gas, food, hydro, rent, taxes,

gas is $5.00 a gallon, in Canada,

that doesn't mean they are short of gas, or rice.

..just because you read it somewhere, doesn't make it true.

.. do some real research,.. come out of that BOX.

.. hysteria, en mass, should I buy gas or food, or rent ...?

LOL! I'm pretty darn sure that anyone who knows me on a personal level would admit I'm the least boxed up person they know. (~: That said, I do admit I'm not entirely devoid of naivety; that I couldn't use a little dussting off.

But, -- I do believe the masses know a spattering of truth. Just enough to make them dangerous in well-meaning attempts to take the lead and do what they believe is right. Unfortunately, those attempts are made--in the whole of things--by the relative few.

While there is still an undeniable amount of complacency, I believe it fair to say, it's not unreasonable for those who go bravely out to seek the truth, to come back confused. With every amount of information posted, reported, and scietifically proved, there are those who follow immediately after to debunk and mislead; who argue and provide seemingly equal proof.

Those in control can easily predict the reaction of the masses or lack thereof. And, as indicated above in this thread, the scripts are all too easily written. Doesn't totally make it the fault of the masses. Not when they believe so adamently in what they know. It's that blind faith thing. And for many, it's simply going to take an act of God for things change.

The problem with that, for many others, is it's seeming the easy way out. You don't have to personally take responsibility that way. So, the problem becomes proving what the many know, ain't necessary so. Why would the governments of so many people lie to them? Who's to benefit? Who benefits in the hysteria? It needs to be proved. And beyond reasonable doubt. Or someone's going to sue you.

Yes, the price of gas goes up-- we're so entrenced in needing it, people are going to keep paying it! Going to be hard to curtail the American Way. And THEY know it! I read they know the price of crude is out of control. So get it back IN control. Or... it's the control that's wanted.

I've seen the price of bread go up $2 within 2 weeks, and dairy prices soar. But people are going to keep paying it, because their lives depend on it. Many cultures depend solely on rice. Interesting that rice is the key scare right now.

The problem isn't so much getting people out of the box. It's knowing what to really do once out. Knowing who to trust, and who not. And believing you do know the difference.

Propaganda or not , I feel every day this crisis on my own!
And I think, even is propaganda (which can not surprise me, for even truth is welcome for propaganda reshaping), lack of food is a fact for decades in the countries of 3rd world, only now will knock at the door of the rest of the world..Always more of humans, always higher standards and demands for good living. And planet is always the same..

To Simon! Yes, agree, when speaking of propaganda, the word of communism, and as idea itself was "blacked" with hard campaign with all possible tools by imperialistic systems.Saying communist to someone is as an offend, as equalize it with Satan itself!
People accepted it , after decades brain washing, not even knowing basic theory about this issue! It can be criticized, as idea, but cant be satanized!
Lately here in Europe this socialistic systems are equalized with fashist one! Unbelievable!

There is a food shortage. Perhaps you are only thinking of the privileged first world, or just the U.S.A., or something, places where life is relatively easy. I am talking about THE WORLD. There are shortages in the world. E.g. in Haiti.

Please think about economics, everyone. Land that was used for growing food is now being used for growing fuel - on a massive scale. Food, such as corn and sugarcane, that was used for food is now instead being used for fuel, on a massive scale. Of course there are shortages. Maybe not for privileged people like us - but for poor people, who can't afford the increased prices, there are shortages - even more shortages than in the past.

I don't get my information from the capitalist media. It is controlled by the bourgeoisie and their corporations (corporate media is directly controlled by the bourgeoisie, and receives most of its funding from corporate adverstising, while capitalist government media is controlled by corporations indirectly, through corporate donations to political parties, as well as the power of the corporate media to fool people into voting for this or that party). If you are getting your information from the capitalist media, then it is probably a picture of the world that the bourgeoisie want you to believe, so they can maintain and increase their wealth and power.

I get my information from more democratic sources, non-capitalist sources: the alternative media, and the (democratic) socialist media. Please address these facts instead of attacking me, accusing me of "living in a box". In fact, just as I don't attack you, I don't accuse you of this or that, please don't attack me at all, thanks, or I will flag your posts which are personal attacks.

From the coalition of anti-poverty NGOs, -

Take Action ! Stop the Hunger Crisis !

"The soaring cost of staple foods and the resulting hunger crisis has caused riots from Haiti to Bangladesh, threatens hundreds of thousands of people with starvation and could push one hundred million more people deeper into poverty."

About 3035% of the weight of hempseed is hempseed oil or hemp oil, an edible oil that contains about 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs); i.e., linoleic acid, omega-6 (LA, 55%), alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 (ALA, 22%), in addition to gamma-linolenic acid, omega-6 (GLA, 14%) and stearidonic acid, omega-3 (SDA, 02%). Whole hempseed also contains about 25% of a highly-digestible protein, where 1/3 is edestin and 2/3 are albumins. Its amino acid profile is close to "complete" when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs and soy.[20] The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon (15 ml) per day of hemp oil easily provides human daily requirements for EFAs. Unlike flaxseed oil, hemp oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs.[21] This has been demonstrated in a clinical study, where the daily ingestion of flaxseed oil decreased the endogenous production of GLA.[21]

Hempseed is an adequate source of calcium and iron. Whole hempseeds are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.

Hempseed contains no gluten and therefore would not trigger symptoms of celiac disease.

Hemp as food source
Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life.[15] The seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk (akin to soy milk), prepared as tea, and used in baking. The fresh leaves can also be eaten in salads. Products range from cereals to frozen waffles, hemp tofu to nut butters. A few companies produce value added hemp seed items that include the seed oils, whole hemp grain (which is sterilized by law), hulled hemp seed (the whole seed without the mineral rich outer shell), hemp flour, hemp cake (a by-product of pressing the seed for oil) and hemp protein powder. Hemp is also used in some organic cereals, for non-dairy milk[16] somewhat similar to soy and nut milks, and for non-dairy hemp "ice cream."[17]

Within the UK, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has treated hemp as purely a non-food crop. Seed appears on the UK market as a legal food product, and cultivation licences are available for this purpose. In North America, hemp seed food products are sold, typically in health food stores or through mail order. The USDA estimates that "the market potential for hemp seed as a food ingredient is unknown. However, it probably will remain a small market, like those for sesame and poppy seeds."
