Airport Body Scanners 'Could Give You Cancer,' Warns Expert


Here is a copy of my e-mail "Letter to Editor" Los Angeles Times re Full-body Scanners at Los Angeles International airport.

Helen Hibbing

Body Scanner Invades More than Privacy; Cancer Risks

Re: "LAX receives two more full-body scanning units," July 21:

I agree with Mel Frohman, Los Angeles in his letter to the editor (dated July 25, 2010) that "No one should be cheering the installation of full-body scanners at LAX." Dr. David Brenner, head of Columbia University's center for radiological research warns that the dose of radiation emitted by airport body scanners could be up to 20 times higher than originally estimated. He warns that children and people with gene mutations whose bodies are less able to repair damage to their DNA are most at risk. He has urged medical authorities to look at his work, pointing to the dangerous notion of mass scanning millions of people without proper oversight. ( http://www.infowars.com/columbia-university-body-scanners-increase-risk-of-skin-cancer/ ) The article further states, "In the United States, people can refuse the body scanner and opt for an aggressive and intrusive hand-search. but people traveling out of the UK and other areas of Europe don't even get the choice--they are forced to go through the scanner if asked and cannot refuse or they are banned from travelling." To Urge Congress on EMF Safety, FCC Must change Guidelines one can "sign" an electronic petition at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/6/urge-congress-on-emf-safety-fcc-must-change-exposure-guidelines-for-microwave-radiation-exposure .
