The survey which was actually to see how people handled the recession rather than just to look at the effect of the food crisis, it found that over a half spent less on Organic Foods.
Some other findings were
- Nearly half (44 percent) of U.S adults report their diets are becoming less healthy as food prices rise.
- Two-thirds (66 percent) are cutting back on overall spending
- 90 percent are considering opting for a simpler life.
- 43 percent are spending more consumer electronics including flat-screen TVs and video games to save on out of home entertainment
