Question and answer
Analyse in four points that need to be considered to address or avoid contaminated food
Food contamination refers to the presence in food of harmful chemicals and microorganisms which can cause consumer illness. [ This article addresses the chemical contamination of foods, as opposed to microbiological contamination, which can be found under foodborne illness. A separate issue is genetically modified food, or the presence in foods of ingredients from genetically modified organisms,
also referred to as a form of food contamination.[1] The impact of chemical contaminants on consumer health and well-being is often apparent only after many years of processing prolonged exposure at low levels (e.g., cancer). Chemical contaminants present in foods are often unaffected by thermal processing (unlike most microbiological agents). Chemical contaminants can be classified according to the source of contamination and the mechanism by which they enter the food product. ]

Evaluate eskom's product in terms of the following factors which determines price elasticity of demand: availability of close substitutes
Weegy: The price elasticity of demand for a particular demand curve is influenced by the following factors: Availability of substitutes: the greater the number of substitute products, [ the greater the elasticity. [ Degree of necessity or luxury: luxury products tend to have greater elasticity than necessities. Some products that initially have a low degree of necessity are habit forming and can become "necessities" to some consumers. Proportion of income required by the item: products requiring a larger portion of the consumer's income tend to have greater elasticity. Time period considered: elasticity tends to be greater over the long run because consumers have more time to adjust their behavoir to price changes. Permanent or temporary price change: a one-day sale will result in a different response than a permanent price decrease of the same magnitude. Price points: decreasing the price from $2.00 to $1.99 may result in greater increase in quantity demanded than decreasing it from $1.99 to $1.98. ] ] (More)
