Poisons in Your Food

by Ruth Winter (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
Many areas of safety and health in the production, distribution, and preparation
of food have been of continuing concern since Winter first published this book (
LJ 5/1/69). Areas addressed in this updated edition include insecticides,
"hidden ingredients" in processed foods, carcinogens, hazardous handling of
fish, poultry, and meat, the water supply, restaurants, food-induced sickness
and death, convenience foods, home safety, and food labeling. A thorough
researcher (472 citations in "Notes"), Winter makes readers aware of what can go
wrong at all steps of the food chain. She points out the many things consumers
can do to minimize the risks of food poisoning and possible death. This book is
sort of an Earth Day Every Day for our bodies, and should be available in public libraries.

Book Description
This ground-breaking Crown book is back in a new edition with all the latest
findings about dangerous foods and what consumers can do to protect themselves.
