I don't know if this is newsy if you're like me and consider the FDA to be a joke of a federal agency that is corrupt, yet instrumental in the relationship between our corporate state's sponsors and their political pawns. But if you're not, more evidence.

The interesting thing to me is the demonstrated inability to have a scientific point of view that may be independent of government's predefined expectations.

The fact that radiation-releasing devices cause cancer or maybe even cause a lot more cancer a lot faster than traditional cancer screening devices isn't shocking to me ... but significant, nevertheless.
