The World Trade Organization has decided that food can be irradiated at
any dose, no matter how high. Consumer groups reacted with shock at the
news that international food radiation laws, in place since 1979, have
been gutted. "The UN and WHO have abandoned their mission to protect
the health and welfare of the world’s population," said Andrianna
Natsoulas of Public Citizen’s Critical Mass Energy and Environment Program.
"People who eat irradiated foods will become guinea pigs in what
will amount to one of the largest feeding experiments in history."
