    All or nearly all black pepper imported into the U.S. is
    irradiated. Why did you not mention that? Have you already
    made the decision that food irradiation is safe for everyone,
    and therefore you should not propagate that information
    to consumers? Did someone pay you to do that? You don't
    want consumers to have complete information when making
    buying decisions? Why is that?

    This is why I have MT killfiled. Talk about picking fights where
    none existed, that post really takes the cake.

    And yet, somehow you were able to post a follow-up
    on Tuesday at 12:09 PM to a post of mine asking about
    whether the health issues related to the attempted
    robbery.

    As a child, did you also cheat at hide-and-seek,
    peering through your finger?

    I don't think there is a way to prosecute the
    spammer for giving poor and incomplete medical
    advice, or posting promotions for the two
    nutritional supplement selling web sites
    that he posted.

    Mandrake, do you realize that in addition to irradiating water, why, there
    are studies underway to irradiate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar,
    milk...peppercorns. peppercorns, Mandrake, children's peppercorns.

    Do people seriously believe that nuclear particles persist in foods
    after irradiation? If not, I wonder what they are afraid of? Having seen
    some of the side effects of folk medicine, I'm distinctly suspicious of
    that too. That's not to say there are not useful natural products but I
    remember an Amazon tribe with one of the world's highest incidences of
    stomach cancer caused by a quite effective throat gargle.

    "Nuclear particles" was never the concern. The concern
    is free radicals, which are produced by the random breaking
    of chemical bonds in the food by radiation. Free radicals
    are highly reactive molecular fragments implicated in
    inflammation, aging, carcinogenesis, etc.

    "Natural" does not mean "safe", and it never has.

    There are still people who are frightened of microwaves. Aunt Pearl will
    not use one because she is afraid her body hair will fall out. ;-)
