Whether you know it or or not, nuclear waste (cobalt-60) has been used for decades to make your food “safer.”
There is a profound misunderstanding in the mass marketplace today about the worth of certified organic food.  The query is not whether the 50% larger or much more you pay at the register for an organic product is truly worth the added vitamin, mineral and phytonutrient content material you acquire.  Even though organic food does generally have significantly larger nutrient density, it is not constantly the good top quality of what it contains that makes it so unique. Rather, it is what you know the organic food does not include, or what has not occurred to it on its journey to your table, that tends to make purchasing organic a no-brainer to the educated consumer.  Let me explain.
The FDA presently supports and actively promotes the use of cobalt-60 culled from nuclear reactors as a form of “electronic pasteurization” on all domestically made standard food. They claim it makes the food “safer.”1 The use of euphemisms like “food additive” and “pasteurization” to describe the procedure of blasting food with inordinately high levels of gamma radiation can not obviate the reality that the extremely exact same death rays produced by thermonuclear warfare to destroy life are now being applied to food to “make it safer.”  This sort of Orwellian logic, e.g. WAR is PEACE, is the bread and butter of State-sponsored market propaganda, and also informs other ostensibly “humanitarian” applications of weapons of mass instruction such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Inconceivably Higher Amounts of Radiation Utilized To “Pasteurize” Your Food
This is not a hypochondriac’s ranting, as we are not speaking here about little amounts of radiation.  The level of gamma radiation utilized begins at 1 kiloGray (equivalent to 16,700,000 chest x-rays or 333 occasions a human lethal dose) and goes all the way up to 30 kiloGray (500,000,000 chest x-rays or ten,000 times a human lethal dose).  The following table is a list of foods that are increasingly becoming “nuked” for your protection.
