Food irradiation is the process of exposing food and food packaging to ionizing ng radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds in the targeted radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated.

The book covers food systems, food borne ecology, how to conduct research on food safety and food borne pathogens, and developing educational materials to train incoming professionals in the field.

Topics include data analysis and cyber security for food safety systems, control of food borne pathogens and supply chain logistics. Learning from food contamination events and foodborne illness outbreaks helps uncover weaknesses in food safety systems and is a foundational property of a truly prevention-based system.

Foodborne illness investigation methods continue to evolve to keep pace with changing hazards, technologies, and food production, processing, and distribution systems in an increasingly globalized.

Chemical contamination of food is a topic of concern that includes a huge number of substances such as: agrochemicals, primarily residues of veterinary medicines, and pesticides; environmental contaminants, mainly heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants, and natural toxins; and processing contaminants as a result.

A principal goal of U.S. food-safety programs is the control of contaminants that might appear in food because of drug use in animals or inadvertent introduction of microorganisms.

Heavy metals are naturally occurring elements that have a high atomic weight and a density at least 5 times greater than that of water. Their multiple industrial, domestic, agricultural, medical and technological applications have led to their wide distribution in the environment; raising concerns over their potential effects on human health and the by: Chapter 55 - Environmental Pollution Control ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION CONTROL AND PREVENTION.
