    University of Hawai'i Manoa Kahualike UH Press Book Previews University of Hawai`i Press Fall Food Safety after Fukushima: Scientific Citizenship and the Politics of RiCited by: 3. At-Risk Groups. Worldwide, three main groups are most at risk of hunger: the rural poor in developing nations who also lack access to electricity and safe drinking water, the urban poor who live in expanding cities and lack the means to buy food, and victims of earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural and man-made catastrophes.

      A new book examines how federal government policies made it easier for minorities to open fast-food franchises than grocery stores. Today the landscape of urban America reflects this history.   " This book is amazing at how it thoroughly describes the how the food police screw things up, increase costs, hurt the environment, and ultimately, cost us freedom." - Matt Rousu "Whether or not readers agree with Lusk's on agriculture and the politics of food production, he will make you think about your food choices." - Kirkus reviewsBrand: The Crown Publishing Group.

    Food safety is a matter of intense public concern, and for good reason. Millions of annual cases of food "poisonings" raise alarm not only about the food served in restaurants and fast-food outlets but also about foods bought in supermarkets. The introduction of genetically modified foods—immediately dubbed "Frankenfoods"—only adds to the general sense of unease. Book Description: The triple disaster that struck Japan in March forced people living there to confront new risks in their lives. Despite the Japanese government's reassurance that radiation exposure would be small and unlikely to affect the health of the general population, many questioned the government's commitment to protecting their health.

Such discussions overlook a central fact: food safety is a highly political issue. Food politics is a term which encompasses not only food policy and legislation, but all aspects of the production, control, regulation, inspection, distribution and consumption of commercially grown, and even sometimes home grown, commercial aspects of food production are affected by ethical, cultural, and health concerns, as well as environmental concerns about farming and.

The idea that every meal can be risk-free, germ-free and sterile is the sort of fantasy Howard Hughes might have entertained. But our food can be much safer than it is right now.Marion Nestle is a nutritionist and professor. What to Eat is a nicely segmented book of nutrition advice.

A lot of the heady political issues are ones I've read before in Fast Food Nation, The Omnivore's Dilemma and others. Nestle has simple overall advice: "eat less, move more, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, go easy on junk foods."4/5.
