The Silent Threat

Chemicals In the Food Chain

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Original 2005 Australian Edition.

How safe is the food you eat?
Foreign chemicals and additives are an unavoidable part of almost all the foods we eat: From the pesticides and fertilisers on our crops to the preservatives and colouring agents in commercial food-processing to the platicizers from packaging materials. But are they safe?

Described collectively as “the silent threat”, the chemicals that now pervade our diets have grown enormously in the last 50 years. Disturbingly, the information about their potential health effects has not.

In this re-issue of the original 2005 edition of “The Silent Threat”, written for the Australian market, Professor Alf Poulos looks at the chemicals in the food chain, how they got there and assesses how safe they really are.
