  • Uses of Radiation

    May 20 2015  The radiation works by killing bacteria and viruses or eliminating their ability to reproduce by severely damaging their DNA or RNA. Since neutron radiation is not used the remaining food doesn’t become radioactive itself leaving it safe to eat. This method is also used to sterilize food packaging medical devices and manufacturing parts.
