    • Science

t's summertime!  We thought it would be a great time to rebroadcast some of our most downloaded episodes.  For this one we go all the way back to the beginning.  We hope you enjoy!

Is preservative a four letter word?  We find out what preservative means to a food scientist discussing the balance of food quality with safety through preservation.  Is a compound synthesized in a lab inherently bad for our health or do those same compounds occur naturally in our foods?  From bacon preserved with celery to 25 year old canned meat, the dose makes the poison.
