Electron beam irradiation

The US Postal Service intends to irradiate selected mail to
sterilize it from possible anthrax contaminations, using high energy
electron irradiation technology.  This could cause damage to
research specimens and museum collection items.  For more
information, please see

    "The effects on research specimens and museum collection items
    from electron beam irradiation of mail by the US Postal Service"
