Is the food we eat killing us?

I don't know whether or not it comes to the same problem in other countries, but it do happen in my country. Some people treat food with harmful chemicals and some use food raw materials in bad quality. So, when I shop in the shopping centre, I sometimes get confused. "Which food can I trust ?" My friends and I always ask ourselves.
Do you have the same problem? If you have, do you have some solutions?
