A good percentage of the opposition to see-through airport body scanners highlights the possible dangers of radiation. Here’s an opinion piece which lists some references…plus a video at the end which pokes fun at the American Transport Safety Authority, the TSA.
Tyrannical comment shocks, disturbs
Your tyrannical announcement on the 5th of February’s news, that body scanners will be mandatory for passengers at all Australian airports was shocking and very disturbing to many Australians!
Please stop trying to convince us that it is completely safe. Most of us know better! This claim reveals extreme ignorance or complicity of this criminal abuse of power. NO amount of radiation is completely safe! This reckless policy will put workers, children, pregnant women, young people of child bearing age, seniors, cancer patients and people with thyroid/endocrine conditions and seizures at risk. There are NO independent, long-term studies on the safety of this technology. But, there are many independent studies revealing exposure to radiation, no matter how small, causes serious long-term damage. Government leaders are obviously not concerned about the health and safety of its workers, citizens or visitors, who are at risk. No doubt, history will record those responsible for the fiasco that is about to unfold!
This draconian policy will also significantly deter international tourists from coming to Australia and many Australians from travelling. Feedback on many sites already indicate this.
Why is Canberra not on the list of airports installing body scanners? Why are those in government not also subjected to mandatory body scanners?
It is deeply disappointing that you and the PM have succumbed to this outrageously foolish $28 million racket and draconian policy, under the guise of security! One only has to look at the Board of Directors of the company selling these death machines http://www.l-3com.com/about-l-3/board-of-directors.html to see the conflict of interest! These war mongering scoundrels are laughing all the way to the bank. They consider the Australian government a “piece of cake” for buying into their war on terror scam. Same scenario as what transpired with the multi-million $ bird flu vaccine scam a while back.
BTW…according to reliable witnesses, the Nigerian underpants bomber was escorted on the plane without a passport, by special security agents, after he was refused to board by airline staff! Obviously, yet another false flag operation to justify the multi million $ racket of selling body scanners. Sadly, the PM has outdone Howard, with the same policies she strongly criticised him for.
One has to ask…. Just who is government working for? Certainly, not the voters who pay their salaries. While there are some good, hard working people in this government, its bad and wasteful policies, such as this one, are doing significant damage and have lost a lot of support. Plus, they are not listening to the very people they are supposed to be representing.
Many Labor supporters are totally disgusted and will certainly remember this unacceptable abuse of power at election time. It is just a matter of time before the truth unfolds! Hopefully, you will reconsider this very foolishly wasteful and dangerous policy.

The Truth is Incontrovertible!

Chertoff and Company – The Cover Up (Body Scanners)
TSA agents being used as the goons to do full body patdowns and groping, all to push an agenda of terrorism against the population that is money related. Follow the money, and find out who is shaking the US and world population down for money. Ask why is it that the world’s most secure airport doesn’t use body scanners, and in fact has told professionals and the general population they simply don’t work. Follow the money trail, the truth will be revealed.
Cover-up: Cancer from Airport Body Scanners
FOIA documents reveal how “large numbers of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease.
Fearful of provoking more public resistance to naked airport body scanners, the TSA has been caught covering up a surge in cases of TSA workers developing cancer as a result of their close proximity to radiation-firing devices.
This is the latest shocking revelation to emerge from the FOIA documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
After Union representatives in Boston discovered a “cancer cluster” amongst TSA workers linked with radiation from the body scanners, the TSA sought to downplay the matter and refused to allow employees with dosimeters to measure levels of exposure.
The documents indicate how, “A large number of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease.”
Abstract DNA and Terahertz Fields
We consider the influence of a terahertz field on the breathing dynamics of double-stranded DNA. We model the spontaneous formation of spatially localized openings of a damped and driven DNA chain, and find that linear instabilities lead to dynamic dimerization, while true local strand separations require a threshold amplitude mechanism. Based on our results we argue that a specific terahertz radiation exposure may significantly affect the natural dynamics of DNA, and thereby influence intricate molecular processes involved in gene expression and DNA replication.
Radiation scientists agree TSA naked body scanners could
cause breast cancer and sperm mutations. Ten big concerns voiced by the scientists
(NaturalNews) The news about the potential health dangers of the TSA’s naked body scanners just keeps getting worse. An increasing number of doctors and scientists are going public with their warnings about the health implications of subjecting yourself to naked body scanners. These include Dr Russell Blaylock (see below) as well as several professors from the University of California who are experts in X-ray imaging.None of these ten concerns are being answered by the TSA and its head John Pistole. The attitude from the TSA on these scanners, in fact, is downright belligerent, treating all passengers as terrorists and threatening to arrest and detain individuals who refuse to be scanned and groped.
Germany has decided against installing body scanners across the country’s airports after a pilot scheme in Hamburg was blighted by false alarms, the interior ministry …
The REALITY! If this wasn’t so true.. it would be extremely hilarious!
