Food Crisis

The recent scare of milk in China has left its mark worldwide as all food from foreign countries are being examined much more thoroughly. Foreign milk has been on hold since the incidents leaked from China. Babies in China have lost their lives or become sick due to a chemical called melamine.

Many Americans are now facing the reprocussions and have been forced to investigate their own food intake. College students must also take note considering that they rarely ever look into what the ingredients are in the food they eat. It is common to go to the dining halls at college and never think twice about what is in the food you eat unless that is you are allergic to a certain type of food. It would be a good idea for all college students to take a nutritional course in order to better understand the process of food intake and what our bodies really require in order to function at its optimum.
