2S2: Introduction - Food safety and risks is a circular system
Keywords:food safety, benefits, risks, transmission, landscape quality, one health, chemicals, pathogens, solutions
The matter of unintended consequences for health, local environment, and landscapes should be carefully considered. This implies, amongst others, that we bring back byproducts, like by- and side streams from food production, that can not directly be used for human consumption, into the food production system. Closing loops to make our food production system more circular has not only advantages, but also entails disadvantages. This may have consequences of the quality of the end product (e.g. contamination by pathogens of chemicals), which may imply a health risk. Recycling streams can also be susceptible to fraud regarding the type of food waste. Furthermore, unintended by-products or processing plants may harm local environments and landscapes.
