Review quote

"A cool, authoritative recitation of the state of scientific knowledge in this emotive area" Food Science and Technology Today "A valuable snapshot of the current state of knowledge... with an easy--to--read style and many references, it is likely to win many friends" The Analyst "584 pages in 13 dynamic and extremely different chapters, written by 19 scientists from seven countries. What will we be eating in 10 yearsa time? Will it be "safe or suffer"? Read this book and smell the roses, or should I say the tainted--contaminated food!" Food & Beverage Reporter 2004
