Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many areas of safety and health in the production, distribution, and preparation of food have been of continuing concern since Winter first published this book ( LJ 5/1/69). Areas addressed in this updated edition include insecticides, ``hidden ingredients'' in processed foods, carcinogens, hazardous handling of fish, poultry, and meat, the water supply, restaurants, food-induced sickness and death, convenience foods, home safety, and food labeling. A thorough researcher (472 citations in ``Notes''), Winter makes readers aware of what can go wrong at all steps of the food chain. She points out the many things consumers can do to minimize the risks of food poisoning and possible death. This book is sort of an Earth Day Every Day for our bodies, and should be available in public libraries.-- Patty Miller, New Hampshire Technical Coll. Lib., Laconia
