Radioactive food preparer

Kills germs to prevent disease
  [vote for,

My idea would allow one to eat food raw without cooking if one would chose to do so. This would be good for sushi and other items that are eatin rare or raw. It would simply put radiation on the food to kill all germs in the food but not enough radiation to leave food radioactive. UV light also kills bacteria and could be used to kill surface bacteria and diseases on the food before 1 you eat it or 2 cook it to insure the food is thoroughly cooked. I believe this would eliminate food posioning and other problems. This system could also be used for pasteurizing milk because it wouldn't change the natural flavor of the milk and make milk taste better.

Waugsqueke- This is new because unlike regular cooking radioactive rays sent to the food would kill life forms but would not actually "cook" the food, so the foods chemistry would not change allowing it to be safe to eat raw. I love to eat raw cookies made with eggs and many things that aren't safe like sushi to eat just it would be safer if it was radiated with radiation to kill anything in it.

Updated the link. Lots of stuff here. [waugsqueke, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 06 2004]

       Radiated milk is baked. I don't think it's very commercially successful though. The sushi bit's interesting though. I wonder if anyone's ever tried to sell the stuff. Idunno if this would work to tell you the truth. I KNOW that radiated food is safe and it still kind of gives me the creeps.

       Irradiation in food preparation is commonplace. How is this new?

       Yes... irradiation doesn't cook food either. You probably don't realize you've eaten irradiated food, Joe.

       The food may still be raw, but this idea is totally baked.

       I don't actually understand what he's on about, but for me the phrase 'radioactive food preparer' automatically brings to mind 'microwave'. Are they one and the same?

       Take heart, [Jojo]. Its a good idea. Just like the light bulb. Someone beat you to it.
