Is the process of rotting food or any organic material directly related to the half life of its components?
No. Rotting food occurs at a cellular level. Bacteria attack the organics and break them down.
It would. Bacteria and fungus are a major source, but the organic material will decompose on its own as well. Cells leak. Fluids mix. Components lose integrity.Organic material in an ideally bacteria-free environment would never decompose?
If you can find any evidence suggesting a link between normal food rotting and radioactive decay, I would be quite surprised.or only then would its decomposition be linked to the half life of its components?
