Food is an intrinsic part of every society, but recently it has become a source of worry for citizens and government officials. Food poisoning, alimentary contamination from imported food products, and bioterrorism are all potential threats to the population of nations, but to what extent? Many new techniques to ensure food safety have emerged recently to deal with several food-safety problems. However, some of these short-term solutions could end up becoming long-term problems. Do health-food advocates exaggerate these dangers? Should we worry about food safety? Have the governments failed to product consumers from the risks of food-based diseases? Examining the topic of food safety from multiple perspectives, Threats to Food Safetyprovides a wealth of essential information on this important issue designed to allow the reader to address these complex questions.
