Information on the quality of food we are eating, i.e. not only in terms of nutrition value but the levels and contents of toxic compounds also, is not always available for the citizens. How do we know that the food we are eating is free from toxics, or at least will not damage the organs of our body. Is it the responsibility of the citizen to find out if the food is safe or is it the responsibility of the producers or is it the responsibility of the shops selling the products or is it the institutional organizations that have to take care of the safety of the products circulating in the global “free market”?
The control mechanisms and the rules are getting diffuse and the looser are definitely the consumers!
