Irradiated Foods!

The FDA has decided to allow fresh iceberg lettuce and spinach producers to irradiate their products with ionizing radiation, they claim that this will have no "significant effect on the human environment" whatsoever. However, irradiation does change the nutritional content of foods. Scientists don't fully understand why, but there's extensive documentation that degradation occurs. You can comment on this ruling to let the FDA know how you feel about it here. Since the co-op's produce is organic it will never be irradiated.
