Re: [cdn-nucl-l] "sterilizing mail"
Why would anyone go to the trouble and expense to build and operate high
energy electron generators when they are not as effective at high volume
irradiation as gamma rays that are naturally emitted from some relatively
easy to produce materials. In fact, some of the materials that make decent
gamma sources are "free" since some people insist on calling them waste.
As was pointed out in Morgan's recent note about the Co-60 bombs for medical
use, controlling gamma exposures is not rocket science.
