In this new volume a variety of experts, including chemists, toxicologists, growers, educators, regulators, food processors and distributors, representatives of consumer groups, and reporters, address the major issues surrounding food safety and pesticide residues. Its 37 chapters are divided into sections covering pesticide use, alternative agriculture production, exposure assessment, risk assessment, risk management, and legislative and regulatory issues. An introductory section defines the scope of the issues and a concluding section represents comments from a panel discussion on communicating risk to the public. This collection, which presents many divergent viewpoints from individuals and organizations directly involved with pesticides, offers valuable insights into the issues.
