The Institute of Food Technologists has produced a series of videos, "Understanding Food Safety and Toxicology," on instructional video Web site MonkeySee.com that educates viewers about the safety of the foods they eat.

The eight video segments, each under three minutes in length, address different topics of food safety, such as "Basic Principles of Toxicology," "Chemical Risks in Food," "How Scientists Assess Food Safety Risks" and "Eating a Balanced Diet."

"The main message we want people to take away from these videos is that the levels of exposure to chemicals in food, such as pesticides, is very low," said Carl Winter, IFT spokesman and a food toxicologist on the faculty of the University of California at Davis. "We hope consumers will take this information and make good choices about food for themselves and their family."
