Eeek Rising Food Costs!

Corn Prices are rising, and the sky is falling!

In what seems to be the new trend, magazines and blogs all over are falling prey to the hype that ethanol is going to make food so costly that we're all going to end up starving.

To add a little more common sense to the panic stream, a very well written article at The Ethicurean on "Who wins, and who whines, when corn prices rise" gives a little more perspective to a growing panic.

So if you're worried about the pending increase in food costs, you should read this article. With everything, there is always two sides to the story and its best to know all sides.

As for me, since I don't eat corn-fed or corn-derived products.. I really don't see this impacting me a whole lot, unless everyone starts buying up all the grass-fed meats and leaving me none. :)
