Course Description: Food toxicology is the study of the nature, properties, effects, and detection of toxic substances in food, and their disease manifestation in humans. This course will provide a general understanding of toxicology related to food and the human food chain. Fundamental concepts will be covered. These include dose-response relationships, absorption of toxicants, distribution and storage of toxicants, biotransformation and elimination of toxicants, target organ toxicity, teratogenesis, carcinogenesis, food allergy,and risk assessment. The course will examine chemicals of food interest such as food additives, mycotoxins, industrial pollutants and pesticides, and how they are tested and regulated. We will explore the etiology of food borne disease related to naturally-occurring toxins and we will examine the ecology of food. We will critically review case studies and special topics.
