Discussion: Food Safety Issues
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has strict guidelines for food safety. Bacteria, fungi, pesticides, hormones, and artificial compounds plague food supplies. What makes these contaminants frightening is that they are not generally visible to the naked eye and evidence of their presence in foods can be very difficult to detect without scientific testing. In this Discussion, you will look at how food safety affects health and explore solutions.
