The way forward for nonhuman primate (NHP) assets is a priority of scientists, veterinarians, and investment specialists. An April 2002 workshop introduced individuals from around the globe to debate numerous features of the difficulty comparable to present shortfalls and excesses in NHP breeding and exportation courses, the prestige of breeding and conservation courses across the world, the advance of particular pathogen-free colonies, problems in transporting NHP, and demanding situations within the administration of NHP colonies.

Preservation with carbon dioxide. Bright red meat sells better than brown meat does, but keeping it red is a challenge. ) To keep meat red, processors pump carbon dioxide into packages of meat for sale. Carbon dioxide reacts with myoglobin in the same manner that nitric oxide does: it replaces oxygen, forms a stable bond, and turns the myoglobin reddish-pink. The color will not be as pronounced as the cherry red of the true oxymyoglobin, but it will certainly look better than the metmyoglobin brown and is therefore able to stay appealing in a meat case for a longer period.

Disease-causing agents); diseases contracted from food are caused by foodborne pathogens. Some pathogens can cause infection with only a single entity, as is the case with parasitic worms, while others require a colony of microbes to make an impact. We often consume small amounts of foodborne pathogens, mostly bacteria, but the immune system of a normal human is quite capable of handling these minor invasions. And although all people are vulnerable to contracting serious illness through foodborne pathogens, it’s those with weak or compromised immune systems — infants, children, the elderly, and those with immune disorders like AIDS — who hold the highest risk of infection.

A double bond in the chain exposes carbon atoms to oxidizing elements, like oxygen and water. These elements react with the exposed carbon atom, often disrupting the chain, causing it to break apart. This is the basic action of rancidity or oxidation — the breakdown of molecular chains into smaller fragments. The more kinks in the chain, as with polyunsaturated fats, the more susceptible they are to rancidity. The more unsaturated fats in the animal, the more prone the carcass and its resultant cuts are to rancidity and oxidation.
