SANDOVAL GODOY, Sergio A.; DOMINGUEZ IBANEZ, Sandra  and  CABRERA MURRIETA, Anayeli. De golosos y tragones están llenos los panteones: cultura y riesgo alimentario en Sonora. Estud. soc [online]. 2009, vol.17, n.spe, pp.149-179. ISSN 0188-4557.

This paper is an approach to three different aspects of the relation between culture and nourishing risk. The first of them deals with the food habits of the Sonoran people, its nutritional preferences, its impacts in health, as well as the meaning and symbolic representations that orient these actions. The second one makes reference to the influence of the market and the great agroalimentary companies in the production and assimilation of risks. And third emphasizes the different forms of organization, and the institutional and non institutional responses from the civil society to face the risks caused by food ingestion. The article highlights the problems and agreements of nourishing consumption that induce the local globalization and traditions, like two of the social forces that configure and transform the nourishing security of the Sonoran people and its culture.

Keywords : food culture; nourishing risk; food habits.
