Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Food is a route of entry for contaminants into the human body. Contaminants such as toxic metals, pesticides, trace elements, and other substances enter the human body through the diet. However, due to the great variability of food and food origin, differences can be found in the content of contaminants in food. For example, organic foods, vegan diets, and functional foods, among others. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to bring together scientific or review articles on the content of contaminants in different types of food and their impact on health.
