Food Treated with Radiation
Did you know that food treated with radiation has proven to be a safe way to sterilize and preserve foods?
Despite what many believe about radiation and objects that come
in contact with it, irradiation lowers the presence of deadly germs
and bacteria in food with negligible side effects. This
provides a safe, efficient, economic way to protect public health
from food-borne illnesses. In short, food irradiation, combined
with safe cooking and food processing, goes a long way in
maintaining the public health free of food-borne illnesses.
