More > decreased exposure to some essential nutrients, which can affect an appreciate fraction of the population especially in underdeveloped and developing countries like cancer, diabetes and atherosclerosis etc. All chemicals deliberately added to foods must be subjected to vigorous testing to establish their safely unless they are "generally regarded as safe (GRAS)". The GRAS listed chemicals are reasonably safe as used, but still evidence of hazard turns up from time to time. Approximately, 3000 different substances are added internationally to foods during their manufacture or processing (Shibamota and Leonard, 1993).

It is a much known and unpleasant truth that since the time of Hippocrates, silicosis is a still the most widespread occupational disease. Until today, 350 chemical substances have identified as occupational carcinogens. Exposure to thousands of allergic agents including vegetable dust is a growing cause of work related illnesses of skin and respiratory system (particularly occupational asthma).< Less
