Another Blogger for Food Irradiation

We don't focus all that often on nuclear technologies outside of electric generation, but here's one student who thinks it's time for more people to enjoy the benefits of food irradiation:

The bottom line is that consumers should have the opportunity to choose irradiated foods if they wish, rather than be denied that right because of unsupported claims made by groups who claim to represent consumers but may only represent a small minority of consumers with concerns about all new technologies, not just food irradiation.
Not bad for a first blog post. Welcome to the Blogosphere!

I totally agree that a consumer should have the option to choose to buy a irradiated product or not. Only the consumer knows what he/she is willing to risk. I may be willing to risk loosing a couple of vitamins and increase in carcinogens just to eat a product that i know micro-organisms and insects were killed. Who knows I might get hit by a bus and killed before i eat enough raddiated food to get cancer or a tumor.

Please listen to Mike Adam's (Natural Health Ranger) podcast on irradiation of food. You are very misinformed.
