Why is it important?

Developing countries have limited infrastructure, thus efforts to promote environmental protection should be spearheaded. This is because pollutants as a result of human activities once into the food chain are very expensive to manage.


The study would play a crucial role in the revision of food regulation guidelines in several developing countries. In the absence of data, this is difficult, thus I believe that this study would promote government to establish strong food regulatory measures to protect the general public and promote international trade.
