DRY FOOD – Dried Food
Food contains proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins and these are vital to life. Food must be fresh when we eat it. If it is bad, it can make us ill. There are two main agents which turn food bad; fungi (such as yeast and various moulds) and bacteria. These are micro-organisms which cannot make their own food. So they live and grow on our food.

Burger to go – Hold the Plastic

Polystyrene foam is one of the great success stories of modern industry. Light, shock-resistant, insulating and cheap to make, it shows up everywhere: in disposable coffee cups, in boxes that hold fast-food hamburgers, as packing ‘peanuts’ for safe shipping. But the stuff has a serious downside as well.

Vitamins and Scurvy

In the early days of sea travel, seamen on long voyages lived exclusively on salted meat and biscuits. Many of them died of scurvy, a disease of the blood which harms the teeth and causes white spots on the skin and general exhaustion. On one occasion, in 1535, an English ship arrived in Newfoundland with its sailors desperately ill.

Consumer Pressure

Consumer pressure is one of the natural phases of an advanced industrial society. As a society reaches a certain stage in development, concern over consumer issues makes itself felt. The United States led the way, other countries gradually followed suit. The Consumers’ Union of the United States was founded in the 1920’s; Ralph Nader began to make himself known as the American consumer spokesman in the 1960s when he attacked the American car industry in his book Unsafe at any Speed.
