Like other nations, the U.S. faces growing food safety challenges resulting from 3 major trends: (1) imported food makes up a growing share of the food supply; (2) consumers are increasingly eating foods that are raw or have had minimal processing and that are often associated with foodborne illness; (3) more of the U.S. population is, and increasingly will be, susceptible to foodborne illness. This report describes how Canada, the EU, Germany, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, and the U.K.: ensure the safety of imported food; respond to outbreaks of foodborne illness; and measure the effective

The Occupational Safety and Health Admin. (OSHA) is responsible for protecting the safety and health of the nation's workers. OSHA collects and compiles work-related injury and illness data.

The report analyzed OSHA's audits of employers' injury and illness records, interviewed inspectors who conducted the audits, surveyed occupational safety and

Mentally ill offenders face mistreatment and neglect in many U.S. prisons. One in six U.S. prisoners is mentally ill. Many of them suffer from serious illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression. There are three times as many men and women with mental illness in U.S. prisons as in mental health hospitals. The rate of mental illness in the prison population is three times higher than in the general population. This 215-page report examines how prisons are dangerous and damaging places for mentally ill people. Other prisoners victimize and exploit them. Prison staff o

Written in 1954 and revised in 1962, "Mental Illness and Psychology" delineates the shift that occurred in Foucault's thought during this period. Part I reflects Foucault's early interest in Freud and the psychoanalytic tradition. Respectful of Freud, Foucault is still contending with Freud's influence. Part II, rewritten in 1962, marks a dramatic change in Foucault's thinking. Examining the history of madness as a social and cultural construct, he has moved outside of the psychoanalytic tradition into the racial critique of Freud that was to dominate his later work.

This paper is written as an introduction to the concepts of microbial risk assessment in general, but with a seafood focus and greater emphasis on the quantitative approach. The risk of food-borne disease is a combination of the likelihood of exposure to the pathogen, the likelihood of infection or intoxication resulting in illness and the severity of the illness. In a system as complex as the production and consumption of food, many factors affect both the likelihood and severity. To manage food safety effectively, a systematic means of examining these factors is necessary.

Financial protection against the cost of illness and inclusion of vulnerable groups will require better mobilization and use of private means. Private voluntary health insurance already plays an important role in mobilizing additional resources to the health sector and protecting against the catastrophic cost of illness in some countries. This review explores the context under which private voluntary health insurance could contribute to an improvement in the sustainability of the health sector and financial protection in other countries.
