Since Consumers' Research Magazine's inception in 1928, readers have been given reliable and useful information on food issues. Characteristically, much of the information had been provided far in advance of official concern or public awareness. Thus, you will find a discussion of E. coli 0157:H7 printed in May 1991 - several years prior to the publicized incident in a fast food restaurant that affected many children. Information on the newly banned pesticide Alar was printed in November 1985, and the possible association between carrageenan and ulcerative colitis appeared as early as May 1972. These, and many other topics included in this anthology, appeared years prior to official recognition that these food issues posed public health problems. Every article included in this book can enlighten you as a consumer, in order to make intelligent choices in a bewildering marketplace.
