Food Safety and Toxicology
It is evident by the dependency of humankind on nutrition by virtue of their heterotrophic metabolism. By means of modern biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, computer science, bioinformatics as well as by various techniques like high-throughput and high-content screening technologies it has been possible to identify adverse effects and characterize potential toxic chemicals in food. The mechanisms of toxicant actions are multifactorial but many toxic effects converge by generating the oxidative stress and chronic inflammation resulting in cell death, aging and degenerative diseases.
