Full body scanners cause cancer

Controversial full-body airport scanners have been found to be just as likely to kill you as a terrorist bomb. An article on news.com.au explains that the greatest concern is if the machines malfunction and deliver a higher dose of radiation.

The Transport Security Administration advertise the amount of radiation to 1/1oooth of a standard x-ray, but because the whole body is being exposed, and the exposure is shallow skin based exposure, other doctors & scientists put the levels anywhere betseen 1/5th to 1/100th of a standard chest x-ray.

Either way, if you are at all concerned, refuse it and have them search you manually. I would personally prefer to be strip searched and body cavity searched than walk through one of these scanners.
