In the U.S.A. food safety precations are based on a concept of the Delaney clause which provides that
‘NO food additive shall be deemed safe if it is found to induce cancer when ingested by man or animal’
I have to identify the main theoretical basis for the Delaney clause and explain how this differs from the methodology used to determine acceptable levels of toxic substances (eg heavy metals) to support the position of enviromental advocacy groups being justified in their support of the Delaney clause.
