Airport full body scanners cause cancer.
Everybody that flys regularly will get cancer if he or she goes frequently through the Full Body Scanners in Airports, Courts or other government controlled places.
Radiation cases cancer! Airport full body scanners will cause cancer. They will kill children and adults and make them infertile. Besides the emotional damage and trauma caused by the humiliation and loss of dignity they will get cancer!
Cancer and tumors especially in the young will likely increase as more body scanners are being installed on a nationwide scale. There is just no safe dose of radiation, 50% of Americas cancers are radiation-induced.
People with medical implants such as pace-makers should also avoid electromagnetic pulse generating body scanners as they can significantly alter the waveform of the pacemaker pulse.
The millimeter wave scanners emit a wavelength of ten to one millimeter called a millimeter wave, these waves are considered Extremely High Frequency (EHF), the highest radio frequency wave produced. EHF runs a range of frequencies from 30 to 300 gigahertz, they are also abbreviated mmW. These waves are also known as tetrahertz (THz) radiation. The force generated from tetrahertz waves is small but the waves can €˜unzip or tear apart double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the DNA that could interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.
Radiography and Tomography x-ray machines are very hazardous and potentially deadly as they emit deep penetrating ionizing x-rays, both BackScatter and Millimeter-Wave scanners are childs play compared to these machines. Researchers find Computed Tomography (CT) scanners will cause 29,000 cancers and kill nearly 15,000 Americans from diagnostic tests done in 2007.
A report in the British medical journal Lancet noted that mammograms (radiography of the breast) were introduced in 1983, the incidence of ductal carcinoma (a form of breast cancer) increased by 328%, of which 200% was due to the use of mammography itself. A Lawrence Berkeley National Lab study demonstrated that breast tissue is extremely susceptible to radiation-induced cancer, ironically mammograms may initiate the very cancers that they may later identify.
Radiation damage is cumulative, each time radiation passes through our bodies, cells become damaged, when cells are unable to repair 100% of the damage then there becomes the problem of tumors and cancer. As Dr. Gofmans research put it: there is absolutely no safe dose-level of radiation, when human cells and DNA become damaged and mutated by radiation, then there is very little that can be done.
It is expected that in the future, BackScatter and Millimeter-Wave full-body scanners will be obsolete, they will eventually be replaced by radiography scanners that can provide a crisp image of a persons insides.
An influential international radiation safety organization has warned that the naked body scanners currently being rolled out in airports across the world increase the risk of cancer and birth defects and should not be used on pregnant women or children.
Pregnant women and children should not be subject to scanning, according to the report, adding that governments should consider other techniques to achieve the same end without the use of ionizing radiation.
The Committee cited the IAEAs 1996 Basic Safety Standards agreement, drafted over three decades, that protects people from radiation. Frequent exposure to low doses of radiation can lead to cancer and birth defects, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,reports Bloomberg.
Courts have consistently found that strip searches are only legal when performed on a person who has already been found guilty of a crime or on arrestees pending trial where a reasonable suspicion has to exist that they are carrying a weapon. Subjecting masses of people to blanket strip searches in airports reverses the very notion of innocent until proven guilty.
Barring people from flying and essentially treating them like terrorists for refusing to be humiliated by the virtual strip search is a clear breach of the basic human right of freedom of movement.
Pope Benedict XVI criticizes airport body scanners.
Pope Benedict XVI has spoken out against the use of body scanners at airports insisting that “human dignity must be preserved”.
The Pope made his comments during an audience with airport workers held at the Vatican.
Although the Pontiff did not mention the words body scanner it was clear what he meant as he told the 1,200 strong crowd: “Every action, it is above all essential to protect and value the human person in their integrity.
If you dont say no for yourself and your loved ones and children to the Naked body scanners you will pay the price later!
