This new edition in Lucent's Nutrition and Health series explores the history and current state of food regulation and safety in the United States. This title covers possible sources of food contamination, recent and historical outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, and various laws and U.S. agencies that attempt to ensure food safety. Multiple viewpoints are offered, with opinions from advocates for reforming the government's food safety programs, supporters of the government's programs, and people who say the U.S. food industry is among the safest in the world. Several scientists, researchers, and journalists are also quoted on various aspects of the issue.
"This multivolume series on nutrition and food science is aimed at middle and high school age students. This set is highly recommended for school and public libraries."
