A couple of months ago, the US Food and Drug Administration started to make waves when it banned some kettle chips in order to make sure they were no longer contaminated with the deadly toxin from the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
The agency decided that if it could be shown that the chips were safe, they would be banned from sale.
It’s unclear whether that ruling is still in place.
Now, a new study from the University of Southern California (USC) is taking a different approach to banning the snack.
Researchers found that the contaminated chips were able to pass through the digestive system and get to the lungs, where they can cause lung cancer.
It appears that this is the first time that a non-paregoric method has been used to make the chips less toxic.
The study, published in the journal Science Advances, was conducted on mice and found that mice exposed to the contaminated foods were no more susceptible to lung cancer than those who didn’t.
The researchers believe that the process was also less likely to cause cancer in humans because the mice didn’t eat any of the chips.
However, the study has limitations.
The mice were exposed to a variety of different food sources, which are difficult to study in the lab.
The only way to be sure that the chip didn’t cause cancer was to see how it affected the immune system, which is usually the most accurate way to measure the risk of cancer.
This was not done.
“This study is important because it has some interesting implications for our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of exposure to non-toxic food contaminants, and it has important implications for the development of future non-animal models of lung cancer,” said co-author Jonathan Wansink, a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at USC.
The paper is titled “Non-Paregorial, Non-GMO, Non‐Proteinized Spices in Non-Parenteral Tea.”
The paper also found that some of the foods the mice were eating were in fact contaminated with non-gmo proteins, including gluten and dairy.
These foods are usually made from corn, wheat, and soybeans, and these types of proteins are not usually found in nature.
However that hasn’t stopped some people from eating these foods, or people from mixing them into their diet.
This study, however, found that these non-natural foods did not cause cancer.
Instead, the mice who were exposed were significantly more likely to develop lung cancer as well.
The takeaway for people who are worried about food allergies is that if you’re allergic to eggs, dairy, or gluten, you don’t need to worry.
There are foods that are in your body that are non-allergenic, but you can still be allergic to them.
If you’re still concerned, you can contact your doctor for more information about allergies.
