Is it Safe to Eat?

We all understand that what we eat affects our health and at every turn we are confronted with major threats – ‘Chicken Flu’ and ‘Mad Cow Disease’ – or controversy, chemicals injected into and sprayed onto our food, or ‘GM’. Questions about food hang over us constantly. “Should we go organic?” “Are we feeding our children substances that will harm or even kill them in the long term?”

Based on the book of the same name by toxicologist Professor Ian Shaw, Is It Safe To Eat? takes us on a surprising and often disturbing trip of discovery that will reveal the hidden dangers that lay in wait for us in the food we eat every day. Professor Ian Shaw will debunk some of our prejudices and demystify some of the humbug that abounds in the world of ‘food science’.
