(NaturalNews) Food prices are now skyrocketing across the USA, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Their most recent report (1) reveals that prices of meat, poultry, fish and eggs leaped 7.7 percent over the last year. That’s nearly 367% higher than the official 2.1% inflation rate claimed by the federal government. (2)

Prices on these food items have risen 664% in the last five decades, according to the BLS, but much of the price acceleration has happened in just the last few years… and there’s no end in sight.

While the federal government tries to blame rising food prices on global warming — because seemingly everything is now attributed to climate change, including depression and divorces — the far more sobering truth is that conventional agriculture is reaching a point of systemic, catastrophic failure.

This past Wednesday a nation bordering China and South of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, decided to become one of the first countries in the world to ban all GMO crops as well as the sale and importation of genetically modified organisms. This means that roughly 5,500,000 inhabitants of this country can enjoy better reproductive, cellular, and digestive health while the environment evades millions more pounds of pesticides.

Joining the trend of other Asian countries to ban GMOs, with China’s recent refusal of 8 different shipments of GMO corn and the nation of Bhutan also going 100% organic, the tide seems to be turning for Monsanto and biotech monopolies who would push herbicide-‘resistant’ seed on the world.
