Topic Background
World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the WHO, adopted a 2002 resolution expressing serious concern about threats against civilian populations by deliberate use of agents disseminated via food. Later that year, WHO published "Terrorist Threats to Food"-a food safety/food terrorism document for national government policy makers. In the document,s preface, the WHO classifies food safety as an essential element of modern, global public health security. In their document, WHO focuses on food, food ingredients, and water-in the forms of food ingredients and of bottled water. The organization defines food terrorism as: "an act or threat of deliberate contamination of food for human consumption with biological, chemical, and physical agents or radionuclear materials for the purpose of causing injury or death to civilian populations and/or disrupting social, economic or political stability." In outlining the potential effects of food terrorism, the WHO utilizes data from "unintended" foodborne disease outbreaks to describe the toll of potential disease and death. The document looks at how a single incident of "unintentional contamination" of just one kind of food can infect hundreds of thousands of people with a "serious debilitating disease," then goes on to extrapolate the effects of some more deliberate and dangerous attack on our food supply. The impact on trade and the economy is discussed as a "primary motive" for food terrorism.
