World Health Day Quiz

April 7th is World Health Day! This year’s theme is food safety. While you may know common food safety tips such as how to wash and store food… do you know where your food came from? Where was it grown or produced? Were proper food safety precautions during every step of the manufacturing process? While most of the people who handled your food before you purchased it may have done things properly, it only takes one mistake to make food unsafe.

The World Health Organization is campaigning to enact globalized awareness of safe food for everyone. It is important to follow basic procedures, such as separating raw and cooked foods, keeping your hands clean, cooking foods thoroughly, keeping food at a safe temperature, and using safe water and raw materials. You may think that eating unsafe food only affects individuals, so it isn’t that big of a deal. However, unsafe food creates a vicious cycle of diarrhea and malnutrition, threatening the nutritional status of the most vulnerable, and potentially leading to a global crisis.
