This is a "True Book." In the front of the book there are two sentences, but only one is true. When you read this book carefully, you'll be able to find the true one. By the time you finish you'll be very savvy and food safety conscious. You'll learn about moldy foods (throw `em out!), organic foods, foods that may contain pesticides, government food inspections (FSIS, FDA and EPA), local health departments, helpful bacteria, harmful bacteria (Salmonella, Staph and E. Coli), refrigerator safety rules, pasteurization and ways you can lower or prevent you "risk of getting food poisoning."
This is a very well written and well-organized book that every young person should be introduced to. The material is concise and the numerous photographs compliment and illustrate the information nicely. Throughout the book are numerous informative sidebars, a food-safety time line and several scattered true facts. In the back of the book there is a page of true statistics, a listing of important words (they are in bold print throughout the text), an index and additional recommended book, organization and web site resources. Did you know that botulinum bacteria can "survive in boiling water for hours?" Facts in this book will give you a lot to think about!
