Research and Innovation into the Biodiversity. Food Safety Perspectives

Open access


In the last decades, the awareness of the harmful effects of environmental pollution on the quality of life of human beings has greatly increased.

This awareness led to the legal regulation of the fundamental right to breathe fresh air, to drink clean water and to eat safe food. Among the concerns of the European institutions, we highlight the right to a healthy environment, as recognized in the Stockholm and Rio statements, but also the consumer’s right to use safe consumer products.

Creating a framework of principles and procedures in accordance with the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, to guide States in the formulation of bio-laws, policies or other instruments in the field of bioethics, legislation to protect and promote the interests of present and future generations and to emphasize the importance of biodiversity and its conservation as part of the common heritage of humanity.
