Merchandise Description
Morton Satin (2008)

It is estimated that more than 100 million food-related illnesses occur in the U.S. every year, several thousand of which prove fatal. These illnesses often result from eating things such as undercooked beef or pork, Salmonella-tainted produce, or raw, contaminated seafood. Today, food is shipped around the world without adequate regulation, increasing the potential for contamination, and the risk of bioterrorism against the food supply is greater now than it ever has been. In this book, the author explains the history and science of food contamination and preservation; the causes, dangers, and types of foodborne diseases; and most important, everything consumers need to know to understand the risk of food-borne illness and to protect themselves from it.

Topics include:
  • primary food contaminants,
  • major foodborne diseases,
  • recognizing a foodborne illness,
  • handling, preparing, and storing of food,
  • how to choose safe food, and
  • updated cases of foodborne illness.
350 pages, paperback.
