EU: Commission to create food safety research network
The European Commission is investing €14m (US$15.7m) to create an EU 'CASCADE' network of excellence investigating the presence and effect of harmful chemicals in common foodstuffs. It will include more than 20 universities, research institutes and businesses, all coordinated by Sweden's Karolinska Institute. Their neurologists, chemists, and experts in risk assessment and metabolism will assess these chemicals' effect on human health and provide advice about how consumers can avoid them by eating healthy alternatives.
