Dr. Steele's extensive argument illustrates well one side of the food irradiation controversy. The proponents and opponents are involved in a heated debate. I am not opposed to the technology, but I am opposed to food irradiation as public policy until the proponents and the manufacturers are willing to answer some important questions.
