Post blurb: “The current beef-E. Coli scare in Canada has escalated into a major federal political issue. This could have been totally and easily prevented, had the beef producer, XL Foods, protected the meat with gamma energy. Canada, the world pioneer in the use of gamma energy for cancer treatment, possesses huge amounts of valuable gamma-emitting isotopes in its inventory of used nuclear fuel, and this country is the world’s largest producer of cobalt-60, another gamma emitter. Steve Aplin argues that the Canadian government needs to support the greater uptake of this cheap and effective method of protecting the national food supply, and should also support the use of isotopes to ensure the safety of water and sewage systems.
