The Food That Would Last Forever:
Understanding the Dangers of Food Irradiation by Gary Gibbs

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that
eating irradiated food is detrimental to ones health.
I have great difficulty trusting a government agency (FDA)
that acquiesces so readily to industry, in spite of overwhelming evidence.

The consumer is left in the dark, not knowing the extent of irradiation,
and abandoned by the FDA to read industry supported documents.

Another quote from the book:


http://www.mercola.com/forms/rankings.htm of Best Health Sites http://www.mercola.com/article/irradiated/irradiation_dangers.htm




"The people within the irradiation industry
are very tightlipped about their activities,
and the FDA does not require them to disclose
such information for the public record. Indeed,
many aspects of the FDA's food irradiation policy
make it virtually impossible for the consumer to find out
just how much of the food supply is being irradiated,
or to know where these irradiated foods are being used."
