Is Your Food Being Hit with a ‘Healthy’ Dose of Radiation?

radiationfruit 265x165 Is Your Food Being Hit with a Healthy Dose of Radiation?We already know the U.S. government doesn’t care enough about us to tell us whether we are eating genetically modified organisms—they’ve maintained their right to keep that fact from us, knowing that if we are armed with the knowledge, we might take down the huge GMO industry with the power of our purchasing dollar. In fact, just during the holiday break the FDA quietly pushed through GMO salmon toward the final acceptance process. But, what else do we not know?

If you believe GMO labeling is the only way the U.S. is flying under the radar with potentially dangerous food, you are sadly mistaken. In addition to the GMO-labeling controversy and the obvious promotion of Big Pharma over preventative, natural health, much of our food is given doses of the same stuff that destroyed Hiroshima and continues to wreak havoc on Fukushima—radiation.

It’s done in the name of food safety and preservation. Zapping foods with gamma-radiation is used as a method for sterilization, ridding food of harmful contaminants that may have arisen in potentially unsanitary mass-farming practices. It is also said to delay perishability, making the food last longer so it can be sent all over the world, increasing food globalization. But more than that, food radiation could be having unknown effects on our health.

According to, this process destroys the vitamin content of our food, eliminating the reasons we should be eating it in the first place. It also produces toxic byproducts including formaldehyde, formic acid, benzene, and radiolytic products that have been shown to damage cells and cause cancer in scientific studies. Also, this radiation can actually increase the allergic potential of foods like milk.

Some companies are even looking to go a step further, using ‘MicroZap’ technology to make food mold-free for 60 days. Food that is zapped will not rot, as the food is completely ‘wiped clean’.

Unlike GMO foods, food that has been irradiated should be labeled. You can see the “Radura” pictured here on But, oversight in this labeling is poor and foods that you receive already processed are not required to be labeled.

So, what’s being irradiated? It’s not entirely clear. However, radiation has been approved for spices, dried vegetables, fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs, pork, poultry, red meat, eggs, and sprouts. And these foods aren’t just given a little “zap” of the radioactive stuff, they are given a “healthy” (and I use that term loosely) dose. The amount used starts at the equivalent of 2.5 million chest x-rays, or 166 times a lethal dose.

The solution? Grow your own food or purchase it from people you know. Shop locally and buy in-season. Don’t trust the system to provide you with healthy choices—you have to make those yourself.

    Dr. Royal Rife proved that radiation does not kill most microbes. You need to use the proper "q-frequency" to do that. So, the irradiation, which has been around for over 30 years at least, has a different purpose. I agree with alex: genocide. This is "white collar" genocide, b/c nobody can detect it till it's too late. … Chris

    This IS INSANE – the UNRELENTING schemes to poison the food supply should make it obvious to ANY breathing, thinking being – The NAZI eugenicists never went away, they just went to the FDA

    hmm, a stray thought – im a producer of vegetables – or fruit – my businesses sucess is probably not based on how much people eat, but on how much they throw away – it would definatly be against my interests to give the product a longer shelf life.

  • alex

    * just another aspect of a multi-faceted "cull- of- useless- eaters" eugenic/ genocide, by the same old Nazis that penned Codex Alimentarius….this is not about patents or $$$…it's about 'Evil' inflicted by the 0.2% to bring in the NWO via a standardized attrition.

    • Covey44

      Yes Yes Yes! It is OBVIOUS that we are being targeted – under attack – by a domestic enemy hiding behind the guise of benevolent government. These psychopaths MUST be stopped.

  • Ray

    Note how the Radura symbol looks nothing like the classic Radura symbol that most people associate with radiation. The Radura for food is designed in a way not to trigger alarm to the uninformed, it's like putting lipstick on a pig. These people have no shame.

    Knowing where, and what our food is, is only common sense.
