In Risk on the Table, Creager and Gaudillière investigate the often-uncomfortable question of how safe is the food that we eat?

Creager and Gaudillière examine the history of food safety in North America and Europe and argue that often scientific findings are disregarded by policy makers when it could mean reforming our current food industry.
