The diseases caused by contaminated food are a serious health problem for the population. Every day, cases are reported of people who contract diseases from the food or water that they consume and that is contaminated with microorganisms, dangerous germs, and/or toxic chemicals that can even cause death. These diseases are a serious health threat, affecting mainly children, pregnant women, immunosuppressed people, and the elderly.
Water and food are safe when they do not contain dangerous microbes (bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi), chemicals (allergens, waste from veterinary drugs, agrochemicals, or toxins), or foreign bodies (soil, hair, insects, etc.) that are a danger to our health.
