The US government has given its stamp of approval to irradiation as a way of killing food-borne bacteria, germs, and parasites. If irradiated food is considered safe enough to give to immune-compromised patients in hospitals and astronauts in space, why is the practice of food irradiation so controversial? This program offers a balanced look at this important method of food purification as it explains how X-rays, electron beams, and gamma radiation are used to sterilize food; identifies watchdog groups - the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Medical Association, and others - that keep an eye on the effectiveness and safety of irradiation technology; and presents the concerns of food irradiation opponents. Which side of the debate are your students on?
