WHO: First-ever World Food Safety Day urges to take unsafe food off menu

07.06.2019 11:36 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) While speaking ahead of the first-ever UN World Food Safety Day (to be celebrated this year Jun 7), World Health Organization (WHO) Head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said unsafe food kills an estimated 420,000people every year worldwide, with the children under-five being the most at risk, carrying 40% of the foodborne disease burden, amounting to 125,000deaths every year, UN Radio reports. As to Ghebreyesus, the unsafe foods (contaminated by bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemical substances) also cause nearly one-in-ten people, or some 600million, to fall ill globally each year. «World Food Safety Day is a unique opportunity to raise awareness about the dangers of unsafe food with governments, producers, handlers and consumers,» he stated. Improving hygiene practices within the foods and agricultural sectors helps to reduce the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance along the food chain and in the environment, Ghebreyesus explained. The UN agencies underline that safe, nutritious and sufficient foods are a key to promoting health and ending hunger, which are two of the main aims of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is to be admitted, the worldwide activities for World Food Safety Day are aimed to inspire action to help prevent, detect and manage foodborne health risks. «From farm to plate, we all have a role to play within making foods safe,» Ghebreyesus summed up.
