U.S. Airport Scanners Pose Skin Cancer Risks, Doctors Warn

WASHINGTON — U.S. scientists warned Friday that the full-body, graphic-image X-ray scanners that are being used to screen passengers at airports around that country may be unsafe, raising concerns for Canadians travelling south of the border.
"They say the risk is minimal, but statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays," said Dr. Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University School of medicine.
"No exposure to X-ray is considered beneficial. We know X-rays are hazardous but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner," he said.
The possible health dangers posed by the U.S. scanners add to passengers and airline crews' concerns about the devices, which have been dubbed "naked" scanners because of the graphic image they give of a person's body, genitalia and all.

  1. Will Chertof patriots and the rest of the gang of mostly foreign owned businesses ,or local agents connected to foreign run security companies that are now handling and monopolising the "American security business since 9/11 ,make even more big profits out of the war "against" terror?

    Please bend over as you are screened .

  2. I'm looking at small RV's now. Maybe it's time to slow down and enjoy the trip like we did when I was a kid.

  3. Yeah, with gas set to go to $10, or $15 per gallon, a small RV will be the right ticket.

  4. You see all those politicians just enjoying their bliss flying around all day? See all the people around you watching unreality shows in bliss? Humanity is in horrible condition but we are all in bliss.

    Plato described this degeneration of social orders. Lau Tsu went into huge details on it, including his take on how this world would end. Siddartha, Yoginanda, Marx, the Gnostics including Jesus, a whole host of people described this exact situation and what causes it.

    Over expansion, a lack of moral control, the negligence of individuals to regulate passions, a diminishing number of sages/avatars, sexual fixation and an absence of love, the lack of inspiration in the masses, diversity putting unlike people together which has brought about dissension locally and globally, and an increase of greedy fools getting too much power.

    We have reached the end of history. A few steps left:

    1) Quickening Turbulence
    2) Total Chaos
    3) Cleaning House
    4) Reconstruction

  5. You can still "opt out" of the scan if you don't mind getting felt up by the TSA perverts

  6. Its only veil wearing muslim women concerned about their modesty that are behind this stirring up of objections to full body searches.
    The posters complaining on the internet are probably all secret 'Islamofascists" agents of Bin ladin himself .

    No full blooded Patriotic Christian American women would object to a simple full body pat downs or feel ups , or even to the dangers of multiple x rays to protect the American way of life.
    As well as male underwear crutch bombers bin ladin is no doubt sending female agents of terror too .
    Where might they be hiding the latest technology ink toner bomb I ask you ?

  7. lBoycott Airports. That will get their attention like nothing else.
