The history of government regulation of food safety is one of government watchdogs chasing the horse after it's out of the barn - David A. Kessler, M.D. FDA Commissioner

What exactly is food safety and how safe is your food really?

Despite advances in medical science, bugs such as E. coli will always be one step ahead of us. Every now and then they will emerge with a vengeance as they spread illness and in extreme cases, death. Always try to find out where your produce comes from and never assume that your food is clean.

And, additives aren't going away in the near future and neither are pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. In fact, GM foods will become more prevalent and, without doubt, there is probably a new additive in your food as we speak.

You are what you eat! Be vigilant and be your own advocate. 'What's on Your Plate' is more important than ever!
