Summary
In this book aimed at general readers and food technology and public health researchers, Satin describes how food poisoning has affected events in history. He presents specific events since ancient times to the present, such as the great plague of Athens, thought to be caused by contaminated cereals, which led to the defeat of the Athenians in the Peloponnesian War, and the possible arsenic poisoning of King George, leading to his madness and influencing the American Revolution. He also discusses food and bioterrorism. Satin is a molecular biologist and author of Food Alert! The Ultimate Sourcebook for Food Safety.
