Radiation is being used to enhance some of the foods that are being shipped to retail locations throughout the United States as you read this. This report explains the situation, politics, history, and what is being presented by profiteers as the 'science' of food irradiation.
As expected, quite a bit of deception is being used to trick the public into consuming these foods without its consent, for everyone knows that public consent will never happen.
One half-truth being used in the deception is that all irradiated (radioactive) foods must be clearly labeled as such. While this may be superficially true, if individual ingredients comprising a food are irradiated, instead of just the final product, then no labeling is required. You can safely bet that the final products are never labeled.
One outright lie is that irradiated foods do not remain radioactive, and this lie violates the laws of physics. Once something is made radioactive, or is exposed to high radiation, it remains radioactive for a considerable time afterward. Radioactive items may also make other things in contact with them radioactive as well. This ‘contagious’ property of radiation is one of the things that makes it so dangerous, and it is why people in many countries who are undergoing radiation treatments are told to avoid contact with children. In the studies we saw, the radioactivity of foods declined by only 45% after 10 days. Make note that the typical level of radiation being used is 200,000,000 times that of an X-ray, so even after 10 days, the residual radioactivity would still be that of something exposed to over 100,000,000 X-rays.
The Status Quo of Food Safety
A New Way To Kill
“The current permissible radiation dosage is about 200 million times greater than a chest X-ray.”
-- Samuel Epstein, M.D., Chairman of the Cancer prevention Coalition
Proponents of irradiation claim that it is safe because the exposure is brief. At such high levels, it does not take long to kill the bacteria (and the nutritional value), but none of these things prove it to be safe. The length of exposure is rather meaningless, when in actuality, it is the dosage that should be taken into account. When medics give X-rays, they must wear protective clothing, because radiation at that level is recognized as dangerous. Why then, is it claimed that it is safe to irradiate foods, which are to be taken internally, after a dosage of 200,000,000 times more?
One fallacy of this new-age science (the type practiced by the F.D.A.) is that something can be proven to be safe. No test can prove that anything is safe. Only the dangers of something can be proven, for it is impossible to test every possible combination of an item’s use for safety.
Tests can definitely prove dangers, and they have done so in the area of radiation. Ironically, actual tests proving irradiation dangers have been ignored, and the scientists involved were expectantly demonized for threatening the official policies. This behavior might be called politics, or it might be called business, but it certainly cannot ever be called science.
Under public pressure, the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) has finally ruled that the public has the right to know, in some cases, when food is irradiated. "Fresh" produce must be labeled if it is radioactive. Nevertheless, the F.D.A. has made it clear that it supports irradiation, and is actively encouraging companies to use it.
Does the F.D.A. Regulate, or Is Its Job To Protect Industry From Us?
Take a second look at the F.D.A.’s label for irradiated foods (top of article). It does not imply that a food has been zapped by gamma rays, or that it is nutrient depleted. It does not reveal that an identical dose of radiation would instantly kill a horse. Instead, the F.D.A. has produced an image of what appears to be a healthy plant naturally growing under the sun. If no text accompanies it, then this symbol will easily be misinterpreted as meaning “organic”, which is likely their intent. This demonstrates that the F.D.A. does not truly want citizens to have informed consent. They merely want consumer safety groups (and people like us) to simply go away.
Most irradiated foods do not require labeling at all. If irradiated ingredients are inside other foods, then the finished products do not have to be labeled. For example, if irradiated carrots are inside of coleslaw, then it does not have to be labeled at all. However, if those same carrots were sold separately, then they would have to bear the irradiation label. Irradiated raw and frozen meats currently require the warning label, but the American Meat Institute (A.M.I.) is currently petitioning the U.S.D.A. to remove its regulations requiring such labeling. They argue that because irradiation is used early in the production process that it somehow does not matter. In actuality, it is our right to know what does not matter.
“Without labeling, consumers who want to avoid irradiated foods will be misled. Without specific labeling, consumers who do choose irradiated foods will also be misled because the end product may not be irradiated, which may have other food safety implications.”
-- Dr. Urvashi Rangan
In reality, using irradiation early will remove any benefits that irradiation could offer, because there is a high chance for reinfection, and yet the food will still have all of the dangerous radioactive disadvantages.
it is apparent that the events of 911 were exploited as a method of manipulating regulators into submitting to something that had been previously inconceivable.
The recent scares with spinach, tomatoes, jalapeños and peanuts will all be used to satisfy the same agenda. Media sources have been aggressively magnifying the stories of food poisoning, to the point where everyone is afraid to eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, and almost anything except Doritos and cake. All of this in the name of health safety -- no less. E. coli found in spinach, during 2006, was first reported as being on "organic spinach", but it was soon revealed that organic spinach did not contain e. coli -- only the chemically grown spinach did. Interestingly, the media then blacked-out the story. These scare tactics have been constant, and they will continue until the public shows that it will not respond to these manipulative fear messages. Undoubtedly, more food scares will be blown-up before we see irradiated “fresh produce" available at the average supermarket.
Children like this are being born in record numbers in Iraq and Afghanistan, due to depleted uranium ("armor piercing") shells and bullets used by the U.S. Military, despite the existence of non-radioactive alternatives.
The U.S. Government, perpetually pandering to the nuclear industry, knew that this would happen, and that it would continue happening until the end of time; but it chose to bombard those nations with radioactive munitions anyway.
U.S. military personnel are also having these same reproductive issues, and many, many more, which have been ignored by the Veteran's Administration. Now, this same Government is working to help perverse nuclear industry executives to poison our foods too.
Evidence that the US government has been infiltrated by aliens with a hatred for humanity.
