I will not eat irradiated food.
The wholesomeness of leafy greens IS decreased by radiation: J. Agric. Food Chem., 2010, 58 (8), pp 4901–4906 DOI: 10.1021/jf100146m " However, total ascorbic acid (vitamin C), free ascorbic acid, lutein/zeaxanthin, violaxanthin, and β-carotene all were significantly reduced at 2.0 kGy and, depending on cultivar, were affected at lesser doses of 0.5 and 1.5 kGy. Dihydroascorbic acid, the most affected compound and an indicator of stress, likely due to irradiation-generated oxidative radicals, increased with increasing irradiation doses >0.5 kGy." I won't be wasting my money on irradiated foods, especially organically grown food. Food irradiation suggests filth and greed for extened shelf-life to me.
This is why we created a wash that is 80-220 more effective than chlorine, without the corrosive effects. Killing salmonella, E-Coli, and many other pathogens. Made from salt, water, and electric, you can achieve better effects for only pennies a gallon. To my knowledge, there has not been any comprehensive, long term study on the effects of irradiating food. The effects it has on a molecular level. and on the end users. Our technology uses the same chemistry that is already in your body to kill pathogens.
