Objects: This research is to provide basic information for invigoration of irradiated foods by investigating statistically significant difference about knowledge, attitude and action on irradiated foods, depending on demographical characteristics. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This research subjected on adults of 19 and over. Survey was conducted from 2 Feb. 2015 to 28 Feb. 2015. 416 Respondents inhabit in provinces including Jeollabuk-do and living in capital area as Seoul and Kyeong-ki-do were selected by convenience sampling and data was collected by self-administration method. Findings: We find the following results. First, average score of knowledge level on irradiated foods was 9.62 out of 15, relatively high score compared to preceding research subjected on high school students, as respondents were the adults here. Secondly in attitude aspect of food irradiation, only ‘habitat’ factor showed statistically significant difference in significance level of 5%. Third, about practice level toward food irradiation, as whether checking food irradiation when buying, checking level of rays and recommendation to other, variables like ‘marriage’, ‘religion’ and ‘habitat’ showed statistically significant difference in significance level of 5%. Fourth, as a result of correlation analysis to see if there is statistically significant correlation among knowledge, attitude and practice level toward food irradiation, knowledge and attitude showed statistically significant correlation positively. Improvements/Application: This study is expected to be used in education or promoting plans, dispelling misunderstanding of food irradiation.
