TSA employees diagnosed with cancer, naked body scanners to blame.

I said I was exposed 29 years ago. To very high levels.I think you missed the context.

Judging by the looks of most TSA agents not only are they not the cream of the human crop but some of them probably had DNA mutations from inbreeding on the Island they came from prior to standing in front of the scanners.

I have doubts about this story - nothing but some ambulance chasers looking for a paycheck. Exactly the type of people that would look for a job at the TSA.

Regardless I'll still be burning my Effigy of a TSA agent on the Fourth of July this Monday

First I want to confess that it gives me what I am sure is a sick sense of satisfaction that TSA Agents would be being radiated and getting cancer from working around the equipment they are using on passengers, it is "Karma" in its purest form. Last year when I was had to fly from California to Texas because of a sudden death in my family, I went through the TSA scans and pat downs and even then I was faced with allowing some subhuman scum patting me down or flying and as I stood their looking down at this really ugly man checking my legs and running his hands over me, I almost slapped him into next week as a natural reaction but resisted, only to get on the plane and have a black couple sitting in front with the woman continuing to recline her seat into my knees hard and ignoring my complaint until I had to say something to the stewardess who thank god moved me to a open seat in first class where I fell asleep and slept through the flight. When I was existing the plane the stewardess told me it was good that I slept because the woman wanted me removed from the plane. I have since driven everywhere and seen the police working the highways like some kind of pirates looking for someone to give them an excuse to rob them..this is no joke. While I know that I am taking my life and liberty into my hands every time I go to work or drive somewhere, I can live without flying and will never fly again if I can avoid it. I am glad these TSA Scum are being Radiated..I am glad and if I am a bad person for feeling this way, I will undoubtedly be held accountable at some point but at least I am not a liar.

Radiation is just a probability game. You CAN get highly dosed and survive. It's just that, the higher the dosage, the higher the chances. Every day we are blasted with radiation. Even without technology, nature itself blasts us. This is what makes us age eventually. Radiation is, at its heart, a game of chance. What's the probability of your dna getting hit. More rads, more chances. Now yea, I'm defending Phage, but that's only because radiation is not a grantee of cancer. You're being exposed right now. Constantly. Theoretically somebody could legitimately walk into a uranium-built house and not get cancer. They're just lucky.

What seems to be more and more common, once again the mainstream/corporate press taking its cues from the "alternative" media. Better late than never.

What do you wanna bet the TSA is telling their employees right now: "Don't worry, everything is fine. These test results are natural. The media is lying, trying a make a mountain out of a mole hill! They're just trying to cause a rift within this agency. So go back to work. The machines are safe."

And the employees reply: "Thanks for the reassurance boss. I knew we couldn't trust that damn media."

The millimeter wave scanners operate at microwave frequencies, non-ionizing radiation. Gigahertz, not terahertz. Like a cell phone.

Oh you mean like a microwave oven? Why don't you put your head in one and turn it on for a couple of minutes and let us know the results.

That would be kind of silly wouldn't it? A microwave oven won't work with the door open.

But there isn't much comparison. A microwave oven has a power density of about 4000 watts/square meter. The millimeter scanners have a power density of less than 10 watts/square meter, not enough to soften butter.

Nice presentation of the facts. Shame however the maker had to resort to language that will cause many to ignore it because of the crude language. That was a bad move on the makers part, or should I say an immature move. Still, good message.

I wrote that because you are implying that microwave radiation is not detrimental to people or life in general.

In general, it isn't. We are surrounded by microwave energy.

that's the point I am trying to make is that these scanners whether they use microwave or X-rays are not safe.

Neither is crossing a busy street.
Neither is getting into your car.
Neither is getting into an airplane.

There is a certain amount of risk in everything, including getting into your shower.

Those are pretty weak arguments, but back to the topic at hand you were the one saying these machines are safe.

Funny, I don't recall saying that. Maybe you can show me where I did.
But I don't think the microwave or x-ray scanners pose any particular health risk. Less than a dental x-ray. Certainly less than a CT scan.

The NIST did test the radiation dose of the machine and found it within standards.


Does this jog your memory?

I don't see anything there about safety. I said the NIST found the radiation output met standards, which is what they did say.
