Airport Scanner Truth

Posted on Aug 1, 2012 in Cancer

This is the reason I have opted out of the scanners 100% of the time, I’ve never gone through one and never will.  This report is from the Alliance for Natural Health.   
The airport x-ray machines are not safe. And for over a year, TSA has been defying a court order.
A few months ago we told you about the dangers of airport full—body scanners—that they emit low levels of ionizing radiation and can cause cancer. The x-rays skim the entire surface of your skin instead of being directed to a localized area of your body, which means that radiation levels could be 10 to 20 times higher than the manufacturer’s calculations.The cancer threat has the European Union so concerned that it has put a moratorium on the machines.**
Dr. David J Brenner, director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University Medical Center, notes the complete lack of independent and clinical data on the machines. The studies that are cited come largely from either the government or the scanner’s manufacturer, and as we noted last November, TSA has also reneged on earlier promises it made to conduct an independent study.

**In its new airport security policy, the European Commission announced on Nov. 14(2011) that it would ban the controversial “backscatter” X-ray machines, which emit ionized radiation, from all airports in the European Union’s 27 member nations “in order not to risk jeopardizing citizens’ health and safety.” 


Hoping this finds you and yours in the best of health and spirits,
