about

The Safe Food Handbook is an essential guide for everyone, especially those most vulnerable to unsafe food—pregnant women, older adults, young children, those with serious health conditions—and anyone who cooks for them. Dr. Heli Perrett provides clear guidance on how to:

  • Recognize the riskiest foods and places to eat
  • Protect yourself from dangerous microbes like E.coli and Salmonella
  • Reduce toxins that build up in your body
  • Learn which corners you can cut—and which you shouldn’t
  • Enjoy your favorite foods without hurting your health or your budget

Helpfully organized by food group, The Safe Food Handbook demystifies the perils in our food—infectious bacteria, deadly molds, hormones, antibiotics, toxins, irradiation, and even wax on produce. Risks lurk in . . .

Fruits and Vegetables • Fish and Shellfish • Meat and Poultry • Dairy • Eggs • Grains, Legumes and Nuts • and even Herbs and Spices

. . . but Dr. Perrett answers your questions on shopping (“What exactly does this label mean?”), eating out (“What should I avoid in restaurants?”), and food preparation and storage (“How long can I save these leftovers?”)—so you don’t have to worry. You’ll have the inside story on what’s really in your shopping bag—and on your fork.
