Who Is Killing Who ~ Food Radiation FDA Approved!

"The meat industry won approval Tuesday to zap beef with gamma rays to kill E. Coli and other harmful bacteria.

FDA declared that the process does not make the meat radioactive and doesn't trigger other changes affecting the taste, wholesomeness or nutritional content.

We think it is safe and we think it is appropriate said Dr. Michael Friedman, the acting FDA commissioner.

The radiation dosage levels set by FDA are millions of times the amount in a typical chest X-ray but "that isn't a valid comparison" said Pat Hansen, an FDA chemist who coordinated the review."
