Abstract : The purpose of this project was to determine if high energy irradiation of food for preservation induced any increase in radioactivity in the irradiated food and, if any increase were detected, to identify the nuclides produced insofar as possible. The basic approach was to use large samples, sensitive low level detection methods, long counting times and appropriate statistical analysis. When available, established techniques were employed, but many new techniques and procedures were developed. (Author)
