Help is on the way! A Plague of Biblical Proportions!

A crop-borne fungus that targets wheat, named Ug99 because it was first identified in Uganda in 1999, has become one of the primary threats to global food security. Newfound virulence in the evolving stem-rust strain suggests the fungus could destroy as much as 80% of the world's most widely grown crop: wheat.

Science! Once again we hear that 'the Sky is Falling!'

the increased virulence seen in East African samples of Ug99 has caused concern the fungus could cause a global collapse of the human food supply.

These people. When will they stop?

Besides. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, in her new blockbuster book on eating Gluten free (and we all thought she was just a dumb Republican echo with yellow hair), will teach the world to eat non-wheat!

And those who are savvy can even make a buck on this. Ain't American free enterprise great?

Fear that the fungus will cause widespread damage has caused short-term price spikes on world wheat markets. Famine has been averted thus far, but experts say it's only a matter of time.
