Would you believe there’s actual science behind the fact that you can eat centuries-old food in the Fallout games, not to mention during Littlepip’s adventures? Thanks to Podrupality for the actual link, but according to this article from Popular Science in 1956, radiation can indeed preserve food for much longer than normal! This is something I long suspected as being the explanation behind just how so much food both still exists and is still edible after so long, so it’s nice to see that others thought the same thing in our own world.
Since radiation works differently in the Fallout world (ya know, with the whole mutants and ghouls thing), not to mention their obsession with the powers behind it, they apparently solved the problems faced in reality mentioned in that article.
Still, I think it’s pretty neat to discover that a fanon theory of mine has a real basis, and it wasn’t just something the developers made up for gameplay concerns.
