Though little known, acrylamide is one of the toxics that can have far reaching health impact ton the general public. This is a toxic compound that is produced in the process of food processing. This means that it can easily cause toxicity if people do not understand it well. Generally, there is low public understanding of this dangerous toxin and this increases danger of the public becoming acrylamide victims if appropriate measures are not taken. This project will reveal more about acrylamide including its chemical properties and toxicity. This will increase public awareness about the compound and take precaution measures.
