    Food Irradiation

    Should we increase shelf life, and prevent illness by irradiating food with no health effects, or are you a moron who thinks you're going to glow in the dark?

    I'm all for it. Just like GM crops, the media blows the "dangers" ridiculously out of proportion.

    They just use the mindset of the ignorant to fuel their campaign.

    Also, water with radium in it from the 40's and 50's didn't really help to ease our minds now.

    I wouldn't really mind, as long as it doesn't alter the taste of the food.

    It doesn't help that the Fallout 3 game uses this belief, along with the belief that roaches would undoubtedly survive a nuclear holocaust with extreme levels of radiation.

    Err... if things were like Fallout 3 then the water and food reallly would be unsafe.

    Heh.

    My main concern for food irradiation, is would it impair/alter the flavour & texture? Wouldn't it destroy some of the nutrients?

    I think there's a few grocery stores over here that sells irradiated food (with the Radura logo on it) but I've yet to try any of it.. or know anyone that has.
