Summary

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and toxic elements are substances of major concern for the food industry. They persist in the environment, accumulate in food chains and may adversely affect human health if ingested over certain levels. The first section of the book reviews the significant topics of analysis of POPs and toxic metals in foods and pathways of contamination. Remaining chapters focus on particular POPs and toxic elements found in foods, covering issues such as major contamination incidents, the effects of the substance under consideration on human health and their regulation and control in food.
