I read a article and they didn't mention any name of person who actually infected.

Good post Winfredable. I'm very skeptical about technology when it comes to food. Technology has come up with a lot of useful things over the decades, and I'm grateful for it. It's good to know they are removing unwanted additives and preservatives, but I'm not giving my personal ok on this until I learn more about it. We have irradiated meat, which I would not buy or consume. It may be used for other food items as well. The term 'microwaved' sounds simple and almost every person has a microwave in their kitchen today, but this company's method of microwaving a product to preserve it without all of the preservatives has to be much more concentrated to keep bread fresh for 60 days. Don't we all get enough radiation everyday from power sources, cell phones, microwaves, TVs, computers, etc? We're surrounded by it. Let's face it, this isn't going to result in price reductions for us. This is business and it's all about making profits, but for you and me, the cost will go up. Now I have even more reason to go out and purchase a good bread making machine. Trying to stay healthy in this toxic world can be very challenging, but it's worth the effort. Unfortunately, it's getting increasingly difficult to find good wholesome food anymore, but don't give up searching.

It is a good news for us that researchers founded that Treated bread that remained unopened had the same mold content when compared with a loaf fresh from the oven.

This sounds promising. If this is the case, then can't customers treat their own bread? I've faced this problem. Wait several days and one end of the bread is blue.

Wasn't there a thread for household hints? It'll come back in a few months then we can add this to it.
What I've heard that is BAD about the microwave is that you shouldn't put food in plastic containers in there because the chemicals from the plastic leaks into the food when heated.

Whats the point in trying to keep so healthy when someone could just mangle you in half with a car tomorrow? Dont get me wrong, i dont smoke, i dont drink....much and admittedly i look at some processed food and think "i wouldnt feed a pig that" but ill happily put ham in my sammiges, pig out at mac donalds, etc etc. I would HATE to put a massive effort into something like that only to have someone else destroy it anyway..

Also, on the subject, bread gone hard but not mouldy? 10 or 15 seconds..

Few little bits of mould? Pick,em off!:)

Yes, but there is little proof as to how harmful the chemicals are. If the molecules are too big to digest, they would not harm you. But, the thing is, it is probably endocrine disruptors and stuff similar to hormones.

There was an infomercial online about male fertility. They blamed a number of things for declining male fertility. Stress, diet, and cell phones were on the list. Guess where a lot of guys keep their phones? Right beside their family jewels. Similar is true of laptop computers. Some of them get warm underneath, and heat is bad for the testes.

Moldy bread obviously isn't appealing to anyone, but that's not the issue I was debating. The Texas company wants to use a form of radiation to kill off mold spores allowing the bread to stay fresh for at least 60 days. I want to know if they're trading off something unhealthy for something that could be even more harmful. Like I said in the previous post, technology is a wonderful thing, but when it comes to the food we eat, we need to be cautious and skeptical. I am going to do some research on this subject and see if I can find out any helpful information. I intend to buy a bread machine, only because I think the quality of commercial breads in general are crap. As for now, I store bread in the fridge and freezer and it helps to keep it fresher for awhile. I have read though that there can be microscopic mold on the surface of bread that we don't see.

Another possible solution is only eat fresh bread...
Not certain I understand why I'd keep an unopened loaf for 60 days...

Lol...I was wondering why this was even posted.

Stop the $15 per month internet charges and go out and buy some fresh bread.

I find that if I put the bread in the fridge it lasts longer. I do the same with my testes.

Nah, I just stick them on top of the butter for a few minutes and then walk away.
