The News and Observer, a Raleigh (NC) daily newspaper, reports that the list of organizations endorsing the irradiation of meat and other food products now includes: the Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control, US Public Health Service, American Medical Association, American Dietetic Association, and the World Health Organization. Only nanny activist groups like Public Citizen and the ironically-named Center for Food Safety still oppose this safe, important procedure. The Center for Food Safety today asked the FDA to declare irradiated foods unsafe for human consumption, despite the mountains of evidence to the contrary.
