Overview

Food Chemical Risk Analysis provides an introduction to the sciences o f food chemistry and risk analysis and demonstrates how the potential hazards associated with food chemicals can be assessed and managed. Fo od scares are never far from the news and particular attention is ther efore focused on the consumer perception of risk and risk communicatio n. Leading international experts provide unique insights in the future of food chemical risk analysis. Chapters on alternatives to animal te sting show how emerging methods offer the prospect of a more rational human-based approach to toxicity testing. Discussions about relative r isks and protective factors highlight the possibility that risks from food can be over-estimated and approaches to avoid such risks are prop osed. The science of risk management is presented as more than just a method for translating science into policy by demonstrating how social , psychological, economic ethical and other factors can, and should be taken into account.
