Irradiation Debate Flares Amid Food Poisoning Outbreaks

A February 25, 2007 article notes the opposition of the activist group Food & Water Watch to making food safer through irradiation and notes ACSH's quite different position:

Although the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has approved irradiation of many foods, Food & Water Watch claims the supporting data were "paltry and flawed."

Weighing in to support irradiation is the American Council on Science and Health, which yesterday said irradiation "could greatly reduce illness from foodborne pathogens and make our already safe food supply even safer."
