38 Days Old

Dr. Sebranek has a brilliantly stupid idea. If I get sick from poisoned meat/bad meat, I’m suing him. Oh wait, I forgot. I don’t eat red meat.*

The next idea, presented by Dr. Joseph Sebranek, professor in the Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University, Ames, IA, on October 30, 2007 before the House Agriculture Committee, is to combine this technology with irradiation—a process that may be very harmful. When meat is irradiated, it can turn an unappetizing color—purplish or even greenish. But pump some CO in there, and meat is back to cherry-red—eliminating one indicator that allows consumers to steer clear of meat that’s been zapped.

Goddess, I want to move to Europe.

*Yes, I know other meats are treated similarly not just beef.

    How, in your opinion, is irradiation harmful? And then, how is it more harmful than say, e coli?
