VIII. Read the passage then choose one answer for each of the following questions (2 pts):
The food we eat seems to have profound effects on our health. Although science has mad enormous steps
in making food more fit to eat, it has, at the same times, made many foods unfit to eat. Some research has
shown that perhaps eighty percent of cancer is related to her diet as well, especially cancer of the colon.
Different cultures are more prone to contract certain illnesses because of the food that is characteristic in
these cultures. That food is related to illness is not a new discovery. In 1945, government researchers
realized that nitrates and nitrites, commonly used to preserve color in meats, and other food additives,
caused cancer. Yet, these carcinogenic additives remain in our food, and it becomes more difficult all the
time to know which things on the packaging labels of processed food are helpful or harmful. The
additives which we eat are not all so direct. Farmers of ten give penicillin to beef and poultry, and because
of this, penicillin has been found in the milk of treated cows. Sometimes similar drugs are administered to
animals not for medical purposes, but for financial reasons. The farmers are simply trying to fatten the
animals in order to obtain a higher price on the market. Although the Food and Drug Administration
( FDA) has tried repeatedly to control these procedures, the practices continue.
1. How has science done a disservice to mankind?
A. Because of science, disease caused by contaminated food has been virtually eradicated.
B. It has caused a lack of information concerning the value of food.
C. As a result of scientific intervention, some potentially harmful substances have been added to our food.
D. The scientists have preserved the color of meats, but not of vegetables.
2. What are nitrates used for?
A. They preserve flavor in packaged foods. B. They preserve the color of meats.
C. They are the object of research. D. They cause the animals to become fatter.
3. The word carcinogenic means most nearly the same as.
A. Trouble- making. B. Color-retaining. C. Money-making. D. Cancer-causing.
4. Which of the following statements is not true?
A. Drugs are always given to animals for medical reasons.
B. Some of the additives in our food itself and some are given to the living animals.
C. Researchers have known about the potential hazards of food additives for over thirty-five years.
D. Food may cause forty percent of cancer in the world.
