  • Natural and artificial flavors are made by chemists, called flavorists.
  • Benzaldehyde (almond flavoring) derived through a different process – by mixing oil of clove and the banana flavor, amyl acetate – does not contain any cyanide
  • 17 studies in humans and 223 studies of nutrient and contaminant levels in foods met inclusion criteria, but only three studies had clinical outcomes. Clinical outcomes were reactions, such as eczema, wheezing andatopicsensitization.They looked at pesticide levels in serum, urine, breast milk and semen and found no significant difference. Long term health effects have not been studied.

  • CHAPTER 12 Food Safety Nutrition HO-15
  • 48 million cases of foodborne illness 3,000 deaths annually
  • Microbes Infection Intoxication
  • E Coli O157:H7
  • bloody diarrhea severe intestinal cramping dehydration & even death
  • “You’d be better off eating a carrot stick that fell in your toilet than one that fell in your [kitchen] sink.” Charles Gerba, PhD
  • Keep hot food hot Keep cold food cold Keep raw food separate Keep your hands clean
  • Pesticides Control insects, weeds, diseases 4.5 billion lbs of pesticides/year Linked with birth defects, tumors in animals Effective?
  • Natural and Artificial Flavors Citromax Flavor
  • Natural Flavor Herbs Fruits Veggies Spices Beef Chicken Yeast Bark
  • Almond flavor + cyanide Bark Apricot pits Peach pits
  • Organic Foods and GMOs
  • Pros Cons Not nutritional superior High cost 25% of organics have pesticides Benefits environment Limits pesticide resistance Minimize pesticide exposure
  • “The published literature lacks strong evidence that organic foods are significantly more nutritious than conventional foods”. “Consumption of organic foods may reduce exposure to pesticide residues and antibiotic-resistant bacteria”.
  • GMO Pros GMO Cons High cost to farmers Cross pollination Failure to confine Insects become resistant Food shortages Nutrient deficiencies Medicine shortages Dwindling farmland
  • GMO Pros GMO Cons
  • Prop 37 Monsanto
  • THE Food Safety END
