Five Pillars of Food Safety, Dr. Shiv Chopra

Add To Cart

Dr. Shiv Chopra's name has become synonymous with food and

drug safety. The USA is presently the richest and scientifically the

most advanced country in the world. Its people spend proportionately

the least amount of their incomes on food supply. On the

other hand, the incidence of food-borne disease (FBD) in this

country is the highest anywhere on the earth. The closest example

of another country in this regard is Canada.

The source of FBD during approximately the last 50 years is

reported to originate from indiscriminate application of the following

five substances in food production: hormones, antibiotics, slaughterhouse

wastes, Genetically Modified Organisms and pesticides.

The types of FBD that these substances induce include cancer,

antibiotic-resistant infections, neurological conditions, including

BSE/CJD, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and immune,

reproductive and other disorders.

None of the five substances is proved to be safe as required under

the Food and Drugs Act of either U.S. or Canada. However, the first

three of these products, i.e. hormones, antibiotics and slaughterhouse

wastes, are unequivocally banned to be utilized in food

production throughout the European Union countries. Consequently,

U.S. and Canadian beef is not allowed to be imported into

EU countries. However, the U.S. and Canadian regulatory authorities

argue that the incriminating substances pose no risk to human

health. Therefore, the issue is being contested before the World

Trade Organization for approximately the last two decades.

His academic qualifications include graduation in veterinary medicine

and M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Microbiology. He is the recipient of

numerous academic awards, including a Fellowship of the World

Health Organization. Dr. Chopra is compelled to speak of truths

that Canadians deserve to hear and understand.
