  • Examples of published safety data, drug interactions, and problems with formulated products
  • Potential dangers and benefits of genetically modified foods, moral and ethical issues, and benefit risk ratios
  • Emerging issues in food contamination, recently-discovered contaminants, the increased use of genetically engineered crops, and their effects on children
