The harmful health effects of airport scanners!

Experts weigh in on the issue.

WASHINGTON (PNN) - July 13, 2017 - Despite the Amerikan Gestapo Transportation Safety Administration division (TSA) assertion that airport full-body and X-ray scanners aren’t hazardous to human health, several studies insist otherwise. In addition to privacy concerns, a controversial study by ProPublica explained that “backscatter scanners” - imaging devices that X-ray the human body as it passes through it - were dangerous to our health because they used ionizing radiation. TSA publicly responded to the accusations, and to the ProPublica report, claiming that the radiation each of these machines emitted was negligible, pointing to some studies. However, TSA consequently decided to remove most of the backscatters and replace them with newer millimeter wave scanners, which they say expose passengers to less radiation.

Former Senator Susan Collins, who wrote a bill in 2012 to require further investigation regarding TSA backscatters technology, said on that occasion that “while TSA has told the public that the amount of radiation emitted from these machines is small, passengers and some scientific experts have raised questions about the impact of repeated exposure to this radiation.”

Dr. Davis B. Agus, who authored the book, The Lucky Years: How to Thrive in the Brave New World of Health, said in 2016 that TSA full-body scanners might be a cause of cancer and that they should be preferentially avoided. “In those airports, they’re putting energy through you. We don’t have a lot of long-term outcome data and it’s all new. I’m not a believer in technologies like that. I get a pat down when I go through and I opt out. I’m not comfortable without data. It’s worth it in the long run.”

Regarding millimeter wave radiation, TSA says, “[Millimeter wave] technology bounces harmless electromagnetic waves off the body to create the same generic image for all passengers.”


However, a recent report posted in Collective Evolution explains that this radiation can cause cancer, fertility and fetal development problems, among other conditions. “Millimeter waves have been reported to produce a variety of bioeffects, many of which are quite unexpected, from radiation penetrated less than 1 mm into biological tissues.”
