Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

CHARTS: The Fast-Growing Costs of Good Food

'Tis the season for pricey salad greens and heirloom tomatoes at the local farmers' market. But even for those who don't run with the foodie set, produce prices have been growing quickly during recent decades, according to data from the Federal Reserve. Meanwhile, less healthy foods like sweets have remained relatively cheap. Together, the two trends are contributing to a fast-growing obesity rate, experts say.

While food prices are growing, they have not diverged much from the broader rate of inflation, according to Fed data. The consumer price index, or CPI, for food has remained close to the CPI for all items since the late 40s, according to Fed data.  - US News and World Report

(Granted, the CPI for all items includes food, so any big swings in food prices would shift the CPI as well.)
