For this discussion conduct research on a contaminant that has been found in our food and/or water. Conduct a literature review for a specific contaminant that has been found in food and/or water and find at least three references, two of which must be journal articles.
You can have more than three references. Your original discussion should present a series of paragraphs that discuss the risk of the toxicant, the potential for exposure or likelihood that it would be found locally in our food or water, and potential effects of the concentration levels found. Find real data for the concentrations that have been found and discuss this information. Make sure and discuss specific locations where the contaminant has been found to be a problem.
In a second post discuss what can be done to reduce the risk of this contaminant to human and or ecological health. Finally, discuss the current or future regulatory considerations for this contaminant. Make sure and use in text citations following APA or another accepted style.
In text citations should include (Author, Year). go to http://libguides.wku.edu/stylewrite to review using various styles for citations. Also, you need to have a references list at the end of each discussion. Make sure this follows an appropriate style. You may use another style besides APA, just make sure you are consistent.
