Not many people would have imagined that the foods they purchase have been treated by nuclear processes before it reaches them. However, this is true. The FDA has allowed food to be treated with cobalt-60, a nuclear waste product for decades. In this process, food is blasted with high levels of gamma radiation to make it safe for consumption. This process known as food pasteurization brings about numerous changes in the food. Firstly, it lowers the vitamin and nutrient density of foods and also generates a number of toxic byproducts in it. These are known to be genotoxic, carcinogenic and also cytotoxic. Furthermore, genetically modified organisms are also being used in the U.S. So, people will be making a wiser choice if they buy organic and GMO free foods while shopping.
