Biography :

Dr. Shiv Chopra is a world renowned scientist. Originally from India he lives in Canada, since 1960. His academic qualifications include graduation in veterinary medicine, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. in microbiology. He is the recipient of numerous academic awards, including a Fellowship of the World Health Organization. His career is checkered with various eminent posts in India, England and Canada. He is also the recipient of numerous national and international awards for his work on human rights, science for the public good, and community service.

Over the years, Dr. Chopra’s name has become synonymous with global food security. Employed as a senior scientific advisor at the Canadian ministry of health (1969-2004), he refused to approve various harmful drugs for food-producing animals. He endured disciplinary actions, spoke out publicly, testified at Senate committees, and won many federal court cases against the Government of Canada. His contributions on food and public health safety are featured in many internationally acclaimed documentaries. His book, CORRUPT TO THE CORE: Memoirs of a Health Canada Whistleblower (2010) is a best seller. Published by KOS Publishing, Toronto, it provides a bristling account of how corporate corruption endangers public safety. It also contains his famously illumined “Five Pillars of Food Safety”, which is a blueprint for the future establishment of global food security.
