By Laurent Rosso on ParisTech Review

In modern societies, controlling health risks is a fundamental requirement, especially for such a sensitive field as food. Substantial progress has been made over the last fifty years. However, the horizon seems to recede as we improve our standards. While it is difficult to accept that zero risk is impossible to achieve, new and unknown dangers appear every day. What are the new challenges of our time and how can we meet them?

Il reste difficile d'accepter que le risque zéro n'existe pas alors que des dangers apparaissent, dont on n'avait pas conscience jusqu’à présent. Quels sont les défis aujourd'hui, et comment les relever ?
