FDA quietly increases allowed radiation doses of meats for human consumption


(NaturalNews) Rather than actually take the time to address the root
causes of meat and poultry contamination, which more often than not are a
direct result of outrageously unsanitary factory farming practices (http://www.naturalnews.com/025716_antibiotic_animals_antibiotics.html), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) has instead decided to simply up the doses of radiation that
industrial food producers are allowed to blast on their filthy,
contaminated meat products.

In the first new rule recently
published in the Federal Register, the FDA specifies that
"unrefrigerated uncooked meat" can now be irradiated right alongside
refrigerated, frozen and cooked meat. And in the second new rule, the
FDA increases the amount of ionizing radiation that can be applied to
poultry products such as chicken by 50 percent, bumping the dosage up to
4.5 kilograys (kGy) of radiation from the previous 3.0 kGy.

You can view the two published rules here:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-11-30/pdf/2012-28967.pdf

These
two rules, which were enacted quietly and without any media fanfare
(big surprise), come more than a decade after the U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) first petitioned the FDA for
their passage back in 1999. And in the years that followed, numerous
consumer advocacy and food safety groups decried the proposals, warning
that irradiation is dangerous.

But the FDA ignored all the comments made by these groups, which included reputable names like Public Citizen and the Center for Food Safety (CFS), and continued forward with its irradiation agenda. According to Food Safety News
(FSN), the FDA actually went so far as to belittle the merit of the
input given by these groups, referring to them as "general" comments
that did "not contain any substantive information that could be used in a
safety evaluation of irradiated poultry."

FDA ignores science showing dangers of irradiation, claims there are no safety issues

This
careless dismissal by the FDA is completely bogus, of course, as the
CFS and many other groups have repeatedly offered valid scientific
evidence showing that irradiating food
denatures its quality, nutritional value, and safety. The production of
"unique radiolytic products," for instance, which include various
mutagens, or radioactive substances, is one major negative byproduct of
irradiation that is both proven and undeniable. (http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/campaign/food-irradiation/)

And
yet the FDA does not seem to care much about the facts as they concern
the safety (or lack thereof) of irradiation, as the rogue agency has
been on a crusade for the past several years to irradiate virtually
everything that Americans eat. Meat, fruit, spices, breads, you name it
-- if the grocery store sells it, then the FDA wants to nuke it for your
"safety." (http://www.naturalnews.com/023945.html)

And
in the rare case that an irradiated food actually bears a proper
irradiation label -- the FDA, after all, has established incredibly lax
rules that allow most irradiated foods to be sold to consumers without
labels -- the flowery emblem, known as a radura, that has been created
for food irradiation is unlikely to have much of an impact anyway, as it
was deliberately designed to appear pleasant and insinuate that a
product is "natural." You can view the ridiculous irradiation radura
here so you know what to look out for: http://www.naturalnews.com/023945.html

If
you wish to truly avoid irradiated foods; however, the best way to do
this is to purchase only organic or locally-grown and verified foods.
You can also learn more about the history of irradiation and how to spot
potentially unlabeled irradiated foods by visiting the following two
