I don't think you quite understand how food irradiation works. They're not eating radioactive food. They're eating food that was passed through a gamma ray beam, which leaves no traces of radiation in the food. It would be almost impossible to make food products radioactive without destroying them completely.

Thanks Charles--I do say in the last sentence that there wouldn't be any radiation poisoning, but the testing on humans part still rubbed me the wrong way, particularly since there hadn't been any animal experimentation (so far as I can determine). Thanks for the elucidation!
