(NaturalNews) Food commodity prices have been on the rise over the past two years, which means food retailers, vendors, and restauranteurs have had to figure out creative ways to absorb these added costs while still offering quality products that their customers can afford. But it looks like 2012 will be a definitive year where these costs are directly passed on to consumers, as a new survey indicates that most restaurants will be raising their menu prices this year.

Nation’s Restaurant News (NRN) recently released its 2012 Restaurant Operators Survey, which includes data on pricing strategies from more than 150 restaurant respondents. The report explains that 67 percent of restauranteurs plan to raise their menu prices this year, while 64 percent say they will specifically raise their prices between one and three percent.

Of those who said they would raise their prices, 31 percent said they would raise them as high as six percent. And six percent of those who said they would raise their prices indicated that they would do so by more than six percent. Only two percent of respondents said they planned to lower their menu prices.

It has been reported a fit and healthy 7-year-old girl died unexpectedly before Christmas after a flu vaccine. Kaylynne died in her mother’s arms four days after she was given a flu vaccine by her doctor at her annual check up.

Officials are now investigating Kaylynne’s death and an autopsy report is due in a couple of week’s time. Kaylynne’s mother is positive the vaccine killed her daughter and told reporters, “We’re just waiting for an answer,” “but we believe in our hearts that it was the flu shot.”

State officials however, are not convinced that the flu vaccine was the cause of the girl’s death.

A report on Seven Days, Vermont’s Independent News, (1) stated Vermont Health Commissioner, Dr. Harry Chen made it clear that in his opinion it was extremely unlikely that Kaylynne’s death was related to the vaccine and he is worried that scaremongering will deter parents from vaccinating their children.

Chen said deaths after a vaccine are very rare and that a death after the flu shot has never before been reported in Vermont.

News reporter Ken Picard wrote:

Chen and other state health officials are more worried about the effects of news reports prematurely linking the Barton girl’s death to the flu shot: specifically, that more parents will opt out of immunizing their children, or themselves, against seasonal influenza.

The case of 62-year-old Ohioan Nick Christie is nothing short of disturbing and a quite telling example of the injustices that are now all too rampant in our so-called justice system.

Over two and a half years ago, Nick Christie was on a vacation with his wife Joyce in Lee County, Florida. According to his wife, Nick Christie was displaying signs of depression and erratic behavior, so she called authorities and asked for him to be taken to a hospital where he could receive his medication.

For some reason which is not made clear in an article by My FOX Tampa Bay, the police arrested Christie for disorderly intoxication instead of taking him to a hospital as she requested.

This is where it begins to get really ugly. According to her lawsuit, Christie was pepper sprayed over a 48-hour period, even while tied up in a restraint chair.
