From beer as preventative to modern-day bacteria, food safety is still on the agenda

We've come a long way since beer was safer to drink than water but the UK still has work to do when it comes to food-borne illness.\n<br><br>\n<i><u>To Eat or Not to Eat? (Text 1)</u> -- This text is part of a Knowledge Set exploring common food safety questions and dives into arguments from scientists about how the food we eat affects our health. This text describes how people addressed food safety issues in the past and the concerns that are still being faced today. As students read, encourage them to identify the causes and effects of food-related illnesses in the past. Students should also make connections between previous food safety issues and current health policies.</i>\n<br><
