In particular, Beta Analytic states that "tissue dating is performed only in the context of multidisciplinary research", and that "samples taken from a tissue treated with additives or preservatives generate a false radiocarbon age".
The Shroud has in the past been in contact with preservative and anti-moth materials, which could therefore have distorted the dating Theology and the Turin Shroud Our good friend Dr.
