New "Food Shock" Report Released by Reveals Disturbing U.S. Food Supply Trends

THOMSON, IL--(Marketwire - April 2, 2011) - The world's food supply is shrinking and as it does the price of food continues to climb, reaching record levels and leaving most of the global population in a state of emergency. This isn't an opinion created out of thin air; it's a strong message that has been researched and delivered by the United Nations. In an article published on on March 31, 2011 a representative from the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization surmised that world food production would have to increase by 70 percent by 2050 to meet the increasing demand from an expanding global population that is expected to eclipse the 9.1 billion mark by 2050, a dramatic rise from the 6.9 billion that make up today's world population.

Simply put, we need a real solution to the global food crisis. While recognition from the UN may help legitimize the food supply crisis we now face it doesn't solve the problem. For that solution we are forced to look elsewhere and fortunately the answers are delivered in a special report titled "Food Shock: Why 2011 Could Be The Most Important Year Ever To Plant A Family Garden," now available for download when individuals sign up for the free weekly newsletter.

Authored by founder Bill Heid along with political analyst and survival expert Brian Brawdy, "Food Shock: Why 2011 Could Be The Most Important Year Ever To Plant A Family Garden" not only details the issues and events that have caused food prices to increase, it explains how a single setback like a regional drought, natural disaster, or crop disease could threaten the entire world's food supply, as well as provides reasons for why food production has become more difficult and reveals how the quality of the crops produced has actually become not only less nutritious but toxic. The special report also outlines steps that can be taken by each individual to ensure that these issues can easily be overcome and the safety of the food supply can be protected.

The reality of the food supply crisis is only getting worse and as that same article pointed out, food costs are now at "dangerous levels" as more than 44 million people have been pushed into poverty since last June. According to the article more than 900 million people around the world go hungry each day.

What the "Food Shock" report brings to its readers is a solution to the current global food crisis, a solution that is being ignored by the majority of news outlets who have been covering the crisis.
