Scientist WARN Airport Naked Body Scanners May Cause CANCER

More often then not, doctors have NO idea what causes cancer in their patients...Go figure? The environment we create and the things we subject ourselves to is causing cancer. Your privacy rights are being violated either way you look at it....Might as well refuse the scan and opt for the groin groping violation instead, and live.

"...statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays," Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University school of medicine, told AFP.

We know X-rays are hazardous but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner," he said.

A group of scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) raised concerns about the "potential serious health risks" from the scanners in a letter sent to the White House Office of Science and Technology in April.

"We still don't know the beam intensity or other details of their classified system,"

My thoughts...I've witnessed first hand how amazing a dog's sense of smell is. Dogs can smell 10,000 times better than humans. Why not just train dogs to smell bombs instead of spending $640 Million of gov't money on scanners?
