Four commercial x-ray units have been built in the world since 1996 (73). The absorption of gamma rays, x-ray photons, or electrons produces ionization. Water is the principal target for the radiation since it is the largest component of most foods and microorganisms. Normally, approximately 70% of the radiation-induced ionization occurs in cellular water, and the target organisms are inactivated because of secondary reactions, not because of a direct effect on bacterial DNA. However, others have proposed that DNA damage is the mechanism by which irradiation acts (68,74–76).

Like gamma rays, x-rays can pass through thick foods and require shielding for worker safety. Four commercial x-ray units have been built in the world since 1996 (73).
