The Dangers of Eating
Conclusion and References
However, everything spoken of here is an example of treating the systems- the contaminated food itself, however, must at some point be dealt with at a higher level. And this, of course, means at the level of industry in the government, which can only be prodded into action by campaigning from the public and the media. As it stands, "blame for the increase in foodborne diseases can be placed squarely on an industry focused on spending less to earn more; on news media that only now are beginning to pay attention to a developing problem and the facts behind the increase in foodborne disease; on a government agency mired in conflict and far too cozy with the industry it is meant to regulate... and perhaps most critically, cheap food."
