A Foot and Mouth Disease Induced Model of US Excess Supply of Beef AgEcon
Yeboah, Osei-Agyeman; Ofori-Boadu, Victor; Salifou, Samaila.
Agriculture is a vulnerable sector of the U.S economy, accounting for 13% of Gross Domestic Product and 15% of employment. It produces quality cheap food for domestic consumption and accounts for more than $65 billion in export revenues. Contagious animal diseases like Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) are often referred to as economic diseases because of the magnitude of harm they cause producers, local communities and the consequences in international trade. Losses from the 2001 FMD outbreak in the United Kingdom are estimated at $10.7 to $11.7 billion. The total cost of an FMD outbreak is the sum of eradication cost, production losses, and the loss of exports. This paper examines the export effects of a bioterrorist attack such as the introduction of...

Adsorptive stripping voltammetric determination of trace level Ricin in castor seeds using a boron-doped diamond electrode. Repositório Alice
RIBEIRO, W. F.; COSTA, D. J. E. da; LOURENO, A. S.; MEDEIROS, E. P. de; SALAZAR-BANDA, G. R.; NASCIMENTO, V. B. do; ARAÚJO, M. C. U..
Ricin, (Ricinus communis agglutinin, RCA) is one of the most poisonous of naturally occurring substances and has great potential for bioterrorism because no antidote exists. Fast detection at low concentrations is a challenge, and vital to the development of proper countermeasures. In this study, a square wave adsorptive stripping voltammetric (SWAdSV) method for determining RCA using a cathodically polarized boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrode is presented. An irreversible electrochemical RCA oxidation peak was identified on the BDD electrode by different voltammetric techniques using both direct and adsorptive stripping modes. An adsorption-controlled (slope log Ip vs log v of 0.80) pHdependent process was observed. For values of 1.0pH 9.0, the numbers...

Prepared for Bioterrorism Events? A Study of the Grain and Oilseed Sector AgEcon
Wailes, Eric J.; Carreira, Rita I.; Danforth, Diana M.; Nemane, Vivek.
One of the most crucial problems facing the U.S. economy is the possibility of a terrorist attack on its food sector. The implications can be profound for its stakeholders, who are highly dependent on this sector for their economic livelihood as well as their food supplies. The U.S. Bioterrorism Act of 2002 was enacted to improve the ability of the United States to prevent, prepare for and respond to bioterrorism and other public health emergencies. One of the important features of the U.S. Bioterrorism Act of 2002 is its emphasis on prevention, a change from prior legislation that focused on punishments after an incidence had occurred. The U.S. Bioterrorism Act does not address food safety issues in general; its focus is to prevent intentional...

THE GLOBALIZATION OF FOOD AND HOW AMERICANS FEEL ABOUT IT: RESULTS OF TWO SURVEYS AgEcon
Vander Mey, Brenda J..
The two surveys used for this presentation were conducted in South Carolina and across the United States. It was found that "globalization" includes global food supply. Americans prefer American-grown and -processed foods over imported foods. They are willing to pay more for locally grown and organically grown foods. Americans believe that their food is tastier and more nutritious than ever, but disagree that it is safer than ever. Respondents were uncertain about the health and environmental impacts of GM foods, but prefer that GM foods be labeled. Farmers, university professors, and the USDA are trusted sources of knowledge about food safety, while celebrities, business executives, and foreign governments generally are not. Since 9/11, Americans harbor...
