Whenever we bring fresh food into the kitchen it comes with its own complement of bugs. Some are harmless and some that would do us harm, given the chance. In this book the bugs are described and the everyday foods and exotic foods they are most often associated with. What we can do to control them is discussed, and what they can do to us if we eat them. Ten food types are discussed and the fifteen or so bacteria and viruses that are associated with them. There is a short review of the problems of food hygiene going towards the future.
