ya, I mean, so your boss wants you to fly every week, you can always find another job!!!
modesty is one thing, health concerns are in a whole different ball park!!
somewhere in this long thread someone linked to an article about how some of these scanners seem to pose a risk to our dna structure, and I was
reading yeasterday that the version that uses low xrays are raising some eyebrows as far as cancer risks.
As far as "terrorist threats" goes, I am sorry, but I have read more stories about people just snapping and going into their places of work,
shopping malls, schools, courthouses, ect, and shooting up a bunch of people of late than I have of people trying to blow up planes! It seems to me,
that it would be much more safer to to have these things in these places, since, it is a much more common. So, they get us used to having these
things in the airport, and before you know it, they are everywhere....
the technology is fairly new, and as everyone should know, too many times, the new that is supposed to be safe ends up not being so.
So, well, we could very well not only see a rise in the cancer rates, but also do irreparable damage to the human dna structure....which might not
show up till our children or children's children reach adulthood!
gee, the terrorists can then retire, since we will have killed ourselves off, or damaged ourselves to the point where we don't matter anymore!
and why?? more than likely, some legislature's friend, has a friend, that is working for one of the companies that is making these things, and well,
that legislature has decided to do his friend a favor!
I don't fly, never have, and I don't like this!!
