a toxic can and a fish bone

Food issues are becoming big news. Just how safe is our food? We read about food concerns daily that seems to have resulted through lack of conscience in order to make bigger profits at the expense of our health. Do we need to be concerned about what we are eating these days? Is food safety a real concern or are we becoming too paranoid about our health? Or are there any real concerns that we need to speak out about?

If you would like to vent your opinion do so through the form below. We would like to see what the general consensus is. Are there more of us who are happy and content, who don't believe that we have anything to worry about, or are there more of you out there who are concerned and asking regularly, "How safe is our Food"?

Tell us what is on your mind. You can discuss any issues in food management or food concerns in general, including the use of pesticides, genetically modified foods etc.

Where are we heading and what are the answers?
