However, others have proposed that DNA damage is the mechanism by which irradiation acts (68,74–76). Radiation doses used in the irradiation process are measured in units of grays (Gy) or kilograys (kGy), with 1 Gy equal to 100 rads. Doses can be divided into three groups: low dose (less than 1 kGy); pasteurizing dose (1 to 10 kGy) used for pasteurization of meats, poultry, and other foods; and high dose (more than 10 kGy) for sterilization or for reduction of the number of microbes in spices. Some bacterial spores may be more resistant to irradiation than vegetative cells and require doses substantially higher than those used in pasteurization.

Communal farming with no direct employer–employee relationship is also common in many parts of the world. This along with a poor occupational health infrastructure lends itself to little or no regulatory enforcement (6). The 1962 ILO/WHO Committee on Occupational Health developed a definition of agriculture that may be used to define a common population for coverage under occupational safety and health regulation and for reporting of occupational injury and illness incidents in agriculture: “Agriculture” means all forms of activities connected with growing, harvesting, and primary processing of all types of crops, with the breeding, raising, and caring for animals, and with tending gardens and nurseries (7).
