Lots of people travel by air and the sad fact is your chances of getting cancer increases by many thousands of times due to THE war on terror.

You will not get the cancer tomorrow but in a few months and or maybe in a few years time depending on how much travel by AIR.

Cancer is a horrible to way in a slow and painful manner from chemotherapy which does not work 95% of the time,hence 520000 dead from cancer last year in America.

520000 is more than 1/2 million Americans killed by Cancer.

What are you even talking about? How does 'THE' war on terror give you cancer?
Why am I even responding to this useless thread.

I've been told that eating Brocolii, wearing red, watching reality TV, drinking after 9pm and showering give you cancer as well...

What a world we live in....

Yes the altitude we travel in planes does give us a higher dose of radiation than we normally get on the ground. I do know airline attendants who have cancer in their 50s right now, but it's nearly impossible to say for sure it's from air travel conclusively.

Now with the risk of high doses of radiation from air travel.... think about the moon landing astroNOTs.... they are all doing just fine in their 70s and 80s. The supposed doses of radiation they should have got would have killed them long ago. All they did was orbit the Earth, if they went out further they wouldn't still be kicking and lying about the moon well into their 70s.

His point is that the increased use of body scanners since the war on terror began has led to increased rates of exposure to those who fly frequently.

His souce cites a lawsuit filed against the federal government claiming that there is increased risk from these devices and that an investigation into this possibility is being asked for.

Something along those lines.

Isn't the TSA body scanners part of the war on terror? If you read the link in they op, you would know it was referring to cancer related to the use of body scanners at airports. There is a topic somewhere here about the TSA employees themselves getting cancer, presumably from radiation exposure related to their machines.

You mean the full body scanners give you cancer?

Well the op could have been better thought out but your not demonstrating your reading skills to well by not checking the source.

This is ATS. Nobody checks sources, clicks links OR reads the entire original post. I thought you knew that :pus:

All we do on here is debunk threads and disrespect people that are or think differently from us.
