2. FDA OKs Viruses to Treat Food Aug 20, 2006, 14:12 Ratty
 
Ick. This won't last long. I guess intellectually I know that we ingest billions of bacteriophages and other harmless viruses all the time. And this virus approach is probably preferable to other preservatives put into food. But yuck! Who wants to eat balogne knowing it's been sprayed with virses? No thank you. I much prefer the radiation method, though public fear of that pretty much rules it out as economically viable as well.
