WHO To Integrate Food Safety Into Global Agenda Against Food Insecurity, Malnutrition

Devex: How to fight foodborne diseases: The hidden side of food insecurity
“…Chemical substances, viruses, parasites, and bacteria in food pose serious health risks, which may not only lead to acute and chronic infections, but also increase nutrient deficiencies and reduce nutrient absorption. … WHO, which will dedicate 2015 World Health Day to food safety, believes it’s now time to integrate the ‘safety’ dimension into the global agenda to fight food insecurity and malnutrition, and has devised a multipronged strategy to do so…” (Pasquini, 2/16).
