An analysis of food price changes. The clash of supply and demand results in increased food prices. The factor of national and international world prices of oil. Who is responsible, and what is the impact of rising food prices? Canada's serious nutrition problems. A report on how much it costs Canadian to purchase a nutritious diet, along with a description of how the study was done. The need for information to Canadians on how to spend their food budget more wisely and how to eat more nutritiously.
