ABSTRACT
The article reports on the claim by food safety expert Martin Bucknavage that the public is suspicious of what they eat in the face of numerous reports about the dangers tied up with certain food ingredients and packaging materials. Bucknavage argues that stories about risky chemicals in foods reported in the news media affect consumer perception. He cites asbestos and tobacco are two examples of cancer-related substances that have received a high level of media coverage.
