Codex Alimentarius and Food Irradiation in the U.S.

• Farm Wars
Irradiation also causes genetic damage to cells.[1] One of the reasons for this is the fact that irradiated food is exposed to gamma rays of radioactive material or electron beams causing chemical changes in the food.

Essentially, the food becomes mutated by this exposure, a condition which does not occur in nature, and is the cause for many forms of cancer and genetic modification.[2] Yet, Codex pushes irradiation as if it were a great tool of disinfection with no adverse side effects at all.

Indeed, prior to the easing of restrictions on food irradiation by Codex, the United States had been irradiating food at an alarming rate.
