High-tech strip search packs massive radiation punch
The truth comes out!
Government claims about the safety of the intrusive, invasive full-body X-ray scanners now being used in airports are based on a deadly lie.
And now, just as I predicted, scientists are warning that the radiation dose delivered by these things is much higher than anyone has admitted -- up to 20 times higher than previously thought.
Dr. David Brenner of Columbia University's Center for Radiological Research says it's because the X-rays don't distribute evenly. Instead, they concentrate on the skin, which is extremely sensitive to radiation -- and that opens up the possibility of chromosome damage and even cancer.
If this is what the government considers "safe," I'd hate to see their version of dangerous!
Scientists say kids in particular are at risk, along with anyone who has a genetic mutation that makes the body less able to repair DNA damage.
Don't breathe a sigh of relief just yet -- because this mutation isn't rare at all. You might even have it yourself, since one out of every 20 of us do. So out of 800 million people who fly each year, at least 40 million at-risk travelers would be exposed to high levels of dangerous radiation once these machines are rolled out nationwide.
"The population risk has the potential to be significant," Dr. Brenner told London's Telegraph newspaper.
I'll say. Jonestown would have nothing on this mass poisoning!
And don't forget -- anytime you step through one of these scanners, your privacy will take flight and never return. As I've told you before, the intimate photos taken by these machines are there for any low-wage airport worker to see, keep and share.
There's no such thing as flying safe anymore. If you want to protect yourself and your family, keep your feet on the ground.
