<i>“The text is well written and amply interspaced with tables so that it is very informative and not too heavy to read, which is an almost unique combination in scientific books!”</i> –International Poultry Production, Volume 18, Number 1, and International Food Hygiene, Volume 20, Number 7<br> <br> <br> <p> The records of human gastrointestinal illness gathered by national and international bodies concerned with matters relating to public health clearly demonstrate that <i>Campylobacter</i> spp. are the most frequently identified bacteria causing infectious intestinal disease. This new book provides up to date information about the species of <i>Campylobacter</i> most often associated with food poisoning, namely <i>C. jejuni</i> and <i>C. coli</i>. <p> Like <i>Salmonella</i> spp., <i>Campylobacter</i> spp. are zoonotic agents. Many different domestic and wild animal, avian, and also insect reservoirs of these organisms have been identified. They are also widespread in the environment and have been found to survive in both soil and natural waters. <p> Part of the authors’ <i>Practical Food Microbiology Series</i>, which includes books covering <i>Listeria monocytogenes</i>, <i>E. coli</i>, <i>Clostridium botulinum</i> and <i>Salmonella</i> spp., this book again offers a practical treatment of <i>Campylobacter</i> spp., drawing on real-life cases to highlight effective means of controlling these pathogenic microorganisms in foods. <p> <p> Each volume in the series has been devised to provide practical and accurate information about specific microorganisms of concern to public health. This new book includes information concerning the taxonomy of <i>Campylobacter</i> spp. and methods used for their isolation and characterisation, the illnesses caused by them, the occurrences of outbreaks of illness and their investigation, and the lessons that can be learnt from these.  Also discussed are the sources of these organisms, routes by which they may contaminate foods, factors affecting their survival and growth and, importantly, means for the control of <i>Campylobacter</i> spp. and their subsequent impact on public health.<br> <br> The information in this book is designed for use by those in the food industry working in manufacturing, retailing and quality assurance and those in associated professional sectors, e.g. health, and students in each of these areas. This book is an invaluable tool and essential reference for all food microbiologists.
Genetically modified organisms or GMOs as it is called is when they alter the DNA of a fruit or vegetable. These experiments are done to increase yield or to make yield better. But there is no scientific proof that they are better or even safe. Only time will tell at a future date. Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, rye, and barley. There are some people who have gluten intolerance. Gluten aggravates and causes inflammation in the small intestines of people suffering from celiac disease. These people need to have a diet that is gluten free. There are many products which are gluten free and finding an alternative should not be a major problem. Many of the vegetables, fruits, and dairy products are found gluten free. Many people are turning to this new diet. If you plan to start a gluten free diet, it is advisable to consult your doctor. Going vegetarian is quite a common thing these days. These vegetarians stick on to only vegetables, avoiding meat from their diet. We need to learn more about what is vegan. Vegan is a step ahead of being a vegetarian. They not only avoid eating meat, but they also avoid eating or using anything from the animal kingdom. They do not even consume milk, eggs or any dairy products. They look into all the details of the ingredients before buying a product. Bread, marshmallows, chewing gums, salad dressing, mayonnaise all of which contain some animal products that are not consumed by vegans. They are very strict about their diet. Their doctrine is saying No cruelty to animals. Many of the processed foods, sauces, ketchup, salad dressings, cereals, and crackers contain artificial sweeteners. These are very similar to our table sugar. But they are quite harmful to the body if taken in excess over a long period of time. Either sugar or any artificial sweetener in excess will cause obesity or even lead to diabetes. Large fructose corn syrup is an artificial sweetener that is applied in most of the prepared foods. As far as possible avoid using it. Try to maintain a healthy diet. If you plan to start a vegan diet or a gluten-free diet, see that you find suitable alternatives to get the needed minerals and vitamins for your body. There are no individuals more disturbed about the possible dangerous effects of GMO food than the fathers and mothers. In fact, that's why a lot of parents want to know what GMO food is capable of doing to the health of their children as well as the rest of their family. Anyway, that is why I want you to get a copy of this book: GMO Foods: The Truth About Genetically Modified Food... a Layman's Insight Into 'What Is GMO ' and the Genetic Engineering Chaos Today! Yes, you will not only be equipped with the needed information to guide your choice of food but will be able to protect your family from any danger inherent in the GMO fads....
