Overview

Is it Safe to Eat?: Enjoy Eating and Minimize Food Risks / Edition 1

"Is It Safe to Eat?" clearly and carefully examines and clarifies the sometimes bewildering issues that we all can master so we can adjust our behavior to lead healthier, less anxiety-ridden lives.

Noted food expert and author, Ian Shaw, also places the risks of food, food-born pathogens and food contaminants into the context of life’s overall risks.

His easily understandable, passionate, yet authoritative and informative book helps you get a handle on the key issues such as GM food, cancer-causing agents and agrochemicals, natural toxins, BSE, E. coli, and more.

Shaw makes the case that enjoyment of food and eating is a benefit that far outweighs the risks, at least if everyone is aware of those risks and takes sensible measures to minimize them.
