Respond to the following: One of your family members has just welcomed a new baby into their home and have come to you seeking advice! They’ve been watching cable news and are now very worried about the safety of infant formula. They saw a news report saying that a foreign country is trying to harm the US by contaminating infant formula! They ask you, as a food professional, whether or not they should trust the formula they’re buying for their baby. What do you say to them? Is the formula safe from such an act of terrorism?
For this assignment, answer the following questions specifically (citing references):
Your family member perceives the possibility of food terrorism occurring but how it that related to the risk of it actually happening? What role do our perceptions play in our ability to assess the true safety of our food?
Are there specific, legitimate concerns related to infant formula production? If so, what are they?
How do you explain to someone which foods, if any, are high risk and which are not?
Which US agency is responsible for monitoring the safety of infant formula? What about other foods? What about imported foods?
What do you recommend that your family member do to ensure their safety? (Note, this recommendation does not have to be food terrorism related.)
these extra sensory abilities? Psychics are a great example of this, according to industry analyst IBISWorld, the Psychic Services Industry generated $2 billion of revenue in the year 2018 alone, with the industry growing 2% that year. Psychics claim to fame is that through their telepathic and clairvoyant abilities they can extract information about you, your past, and your future. Psychics have a full range of services they provide consisting of Palmistry, Cartomancy, Mediumship, Aura reading, and Astrology. Palmistry, which can also be referred to as chiromancy, is an extension of precognition in which the Psychic will read the subject’s palm in order to tell them things about their future. Psychics make these predictions of the future seem legitimate by making them extremely vague, leaving much of the decision on what their prediction means on the subject. This also takes advantage of availability bias, by having this vague prediction inside their head, the subject will be more observant, looking for things that will show that the Psychic’s prediction was correct. The next service provided by Psychics is Cartomancy, in the United States this is more commonly known as tarot card reading. Cartomancy is the telling of fortune, using a deck of cards to base the fortunes off of. The same vagueness and availability bias apply here in contributing to people thinking these fortunes hold any weight. Another service that Psychics provide is Mediumship. This is a mediation of communication between the living and dead. People usually seek a medium for closure after a loved one has died, or if they believe some kind of spirit may be haunting their home. In Western culture we have developed a fascination with spirits and being haunted by the dead. There are many movies and shows which cover this subject. Mediums are able to take advantage of people who are either grieving, or in fear. This will put people in an unstable mental state and look anywhere for any sort of answer to ease their minds. In addition to Mediumship there is Aura Reading. Psychics claim that they have the ability to see an aur>GET ANSWER
