Between 81 and 266 million Americans suffer from food poisoning every year, and recent discoveries of mad cow disease, bird flu, and mercury in farm-raised fish have made headlines of the food we put on our tables. Government agencies such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and private scientific groups put forth different, and sometimes conflicting, information about food safety. What are consumers to do? "Food Safety" examines the many factors that influence this timely debate, such as scientific research, politics, and economics, giving equal weight to each argument in a manner both objective and engaging.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."well organized, clearly written, and include a rich array of bibliographic resources."
..."well-organized, concise, and comprehensive arguments on both sides of several controversial issues... Recommended."
"CombinYes a strong historical overview with up-to-date discussion...High schoolers may be the primary audience for this, but adults will find much to discuss here, too."
"A little over a hundred pages of material in each offers the perfect platform to fuel a classroom debate. All are highly recommended picks, offering lasting library lending value."
"Unlike similar titles in a number of other series, these books were written by individual authors and offer clear, well-supported theories that make use of many examples...these volumes have a definite place in libraries where material on these topics is needed for more adept readers and researchers."
