DIETER ARNOLD SPEAKS AT A WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION PRESS CONFERENCE.
Dieter Arnold of Germany's Federal Institute for Health Protection of
Consumers speaks at a press conference after an emergency session of
international food safety experts at the World Health Organization
(WHO) in Geneva, June 27, 2002. International food safety experts said
on Thursday that the fatty foods may be cancer-causing but a final
verdict needed more research. The 25 specialists, mainly from Europe,
the United States and Japan were summoned to Geneva after researchers
in Sweden found high levels of acrylamide, a cancer-causing substance
in animals, in carbohydrate-rich foods such as potato crisps. The
finding, subsequently backed up by similar tests in four other
countries including Britain and Norway, triggered a worldwide food
scare. REUTERS/Jean-Marc Ferre
