In order to make our food safer, they add radiation? Apparently, The Ecoli bacteria has become such a big problem that it is necessary to had more potentially harmful stuff to our food. According to an article I just read, they have been adding it to ground beef for years. OOPs, hold on, my arm just fell off for no apparent reason. Who knew and what do you think of this issue with the food you consume? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26338780/

I thinkj we would really be shocked at the things that happen to the food we eat. It is no wonder so much is medically wrong with us.

Exactly, we are living in the age where what we don't know is bound to kill us sooner or later.

Well, just fyi, there is no real evidence that irradiating food to remove bacteria is in any way harmful to individual people. The word radiation scares a lot of people, but we are exposed to low quantities all the time. The people who are freaked out about this are the same people who contributed to our energy crisis and global warming by fighting against nuclear power, which happens to be incredibly safe and harmless if done properly.

The fact that you say that there is no real evidence, means absolutely nothing to me. They always say this until someone suddenly vanishes into thin air, then they want to change the warning labels. You won't survive without wisdom.

I think there are a lot of things that are added to foods that ppl don't know about and if they did know they'd quit eating them. I also wonder how many of these add-in's are directly responsible for the health problems we all face like obesity, heart conditions, cancer, and many more. I still say raising your own meat, veggies and fruits are the best way to go. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]
