I just don't understand what is going on here. This article says it is bad to irradiate and this article ( ood-is-it-safe/page1.aspx)says it is good and supported by one of the best hospitals in the world (Mayo Clinic). Can someone explain what is going on here? Who is right?

May I correct your report please? I am an australian with an affected cat that ate gamma irradiated food and campaigned to help get the process stopped. The ban on gamma irradiation is only limited to cat food at this stage, irradiated dog food is to be labelled as unsuitable for cats. This does not really go far enough because cats that ate the irradiated dog kibble were also affected. We are continuing to lobby the Australian Government to get all pet food irradiation banned and a full review of the safety of food irradiation and labelling generally. The RSPCA is also campaigning for regulation of the pet food industry. Thank you.
