These X-ray scanners send a high-energy beam of electromagnetic waves that pass through the subject to digitally create the x-ray image of the persons’ insides. These machines are similar to the Backscatter X-ray scanners (the scanners that look like 2-boxes you step in-between) but rely on low-energy x-ray waves that are only strong enough to pass through clothing producing the ‘blue alien‘ image of the persons figure.

X-rays that penetrate the human body are extremely dangerous and can even be deadly, people who use them significantly increase the risks of internal cancer and tumor growth. Women are especially susceptible to these deep penetrating rays as breast tissue has is very vulnerable to cancer, children and the unborn are the most at-risk.

The Backscatter and millimeter-wave are far less damaging than conventional x-ray, but Backscatter machines still rely on ionizing x-ray and millimeter-wave scanners rely on terahertz waves still be absorbed by the very surface of the skin, destroying, mutating DNA and skin cells which could lead to cancer.

Here is CNN’s Sanjay Gupta failing to mention that terahertz waves from millimeter-wave machines have been tested to “unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication (that can potentially cause cancer)”.

He also fails to mention that radiation damage is cumulative and with each dose builds upon cellular mutation caused by the last –in other words– these machines can effect previously damaged cells to trigger the spread of cancer.

In the future, BackScatter and Millimeter-Wave full-body scanners will be obsolete, they will eventually be replaced by radiography scanners that can provide a crisp image of a person’s insides.

There are 3 types of full-body scanners; the millimeter-wave (terahertz non-ionizing radiation), BackScatter (low-level ionizing x-ray) and transmission x-ray (digital radiographic) scanners.

The millimeter-wave scanners are perfect for detecting metal objects but are rather useless when it comes to detecting soft plastics, liquids and chemicals according to Tory MP Ben Wallace who worked on the machines. BackScatter scanners can detect both hard and soft materials but is just as limited in its scope as it can only see through clothing and not under folds of skin. The full-body scanner that has the potential to view all objects beyond folds of skin has to be the radiographic transmission x-ray, these machines are likely to dominate the prison-industrial-complex that is America’s transportation system.


SecurPass Digital Radiography Scanner

Radiography is very common in the medical practice, you might have used these machines if you ever had to deal with fractured bones or had a mammogram. Digital Radiography Scanners (DRS) have been used worldwide in airports, mining and correctional facilities, however this security technology is relatively new in the United States. The FDA has already approved this technology under the auspices of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) even though they have not yet been used in the U.S. for security reasons.

This technology can detect narcotics, metallic and non-metallic weapons, plastic and liquid explosive devices, chemical and biological materials and components of explosive devices inside and outside the human body. The DRS are marketed under several names such as SecureScan, ConPass and SecurPass.

Radiography and Tomography x-ray machines are very hazardous and potentially deadly as they emit deep penetrating ionizing x-rays, both BackScatter and Millimeter-Wave scanners are child’s play compared to these machines. Researchers find Computed Tomography (CT) scanners will cause 29,000 cancers and kill nearly 15,000 Americans from diagnostic tests done in 2007.

A report in the British medical journal Lancet noted that mammograms (radiography of the breast) were introduced in 1983, the incidence of ductal carcinoma (a form of breast cancer) increased by 328%, of which 200% was due to the use of mammography itself. A Lawrence Berkeley National Lab study demonstrated that breast tissue is extremely susceptible to radiation-induced cancer, ironically mammograms may initiate the very cancers that they may later identify.

Radiation damage is cumulative, each time radiation passes through our bodies, cells become damaged, when cells are unable to repair 100% of the damage then there becomes the problem of tumors and cancer. As Dr. Gofman’s research put it; There is absolutely no safe dose-level of radiation, when human cells and DNA become damaged and mutated by radiation, then there is very little that can be done.

I imagine that there is going to be a huge push for these machines, as the 2010 forecast is likely to be the year of terrorism according to Gerald Celente. The media and other tools are continuing the push for these invasive and potentially deadly machines after a report of a suicide bomber carrying explosives inside his rectum. Abdullah Asieri adopted the new tactic of “carrying explosives in his anal cavity” for the un-successful attack against Saudi prince Mohammed Bin Nayef in September 2009. Asieri was reportedly blown in half by the blast and left Nayef un-injured.

After this incident and the Flight 253 non-event, there will be even more propositions of scanners that can do virtual cavity searches, there’s already chatter on the mainstream media about the need for internal searches of travelers:

Ann Coulter: “Unless the bomb is inserted under the foreskin, and by the way, I don’t see a clear angle on the anus. That’s a pretty easy hiding place for this.”

Stephen Colbert: “Every time a young Muslim man arrives at the airport, the TSA should respectfully take him aside and give him an involuntary colonoscopy.”

Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney: “If you are an 18 to 28-year-old Muslim man then you should be strip-searched. And if we don’t do that there’s a very high probability we’re going to lose an airline.”

Franco Frattini: “if a terrorist has swallowed a capsule full of explosives and could become a human bomb,” “right to security is essential for all other freedoms.”

Will we be herded on conveyor-belts like luggage where we are x-rayed for the sake of security? Who is the real terrorist, bombarding our bodies with radiation that will likely lead to many early deaths? Unfortunately it is all to easy for the government to use terrorist attacks to crackdown on the American people, lets hope these radiography scanners never see the light of day in any airport in the United States.

Government Uses Stimulus Money To Buy Naked Body Scanners

Government Uses Stimulus Money To Buy Naked Body Scanners

CNN
January 6, 2010

The U.S. government is using $25 million in stimulus money to buy and install full body scanners in airports this year, in an effort to ramp up security and create jobs.

The Transportation Security Administration is using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to purchase 150 of the full body scanners, according to TSA spokeswoman Sarah Horowitz.

These “backscatter” scanners, which use X-rays to provide detailed images of hidden objects in or under a person’s clothing, are manufactured by Rapiscan, a subsidiary of Hawthorn, Calif.-based OSI (OSIS). The scanners cost from $150,000 to $180,000 apiece, according to the company.

Peter Kant, vice president of global government affairs for Rapiscan, said his company received a $25 million contract from the TSA to produce the 150 backscatter scanners. The contract has helped create 25 jobs, mostly manufacturing positions in the company’s Ocean Springs, Miss. facility, as well as some engineering jobs, he said.

Horowitz would not specify how much money had been earmarked for TSA spending on scanners, but she said the agency has enough funds that would come from the stimulus program and other federal sources to buy an additional 300 scanners.

Full-Body Scanners Increase Cancer Risk

There are two types of scanners we will have to endure at the airport; the millimeter-wave scanner and the ‘backscatter’ X-ray scanner. Both emit ‘high-energy’ radiation and are dangerous.

Body scanners have revolutionized the practice of medicine and has saved many lives, but we must question the government’s mandate to have people endure high-energy radiation in a non-life-threatening situation. We must protest the use of full-body scanners on children and young adults as they are at greater-risk of developing brain tumors and cancer from these machines. Cancer and tumors especially in the young will likely increase as more body scanners are being installed on a nationwide scale. There is just no “safe” dose of radiation, 50% of America’s cancers are radiation-induced.

People with medical implants such as pace-makers should also avoid electromagnetic pulse generating body scanners as they can significantly alter the waveform of the pacemaker pulse.

The millimeter wave scanners emit a wavelength of ten to one millimeter called a millimeter wave, these waves are considered Extremely High Frequency (EHF), the highest radio frequency wave produced. EHF runs a range of frequencies from 30 to 300 gigahertz, they are also abbreviated mmW. These waves are also known as terahertz (THz) radiation. The force generated from terahertz waves is small but the waves can ‘unzip’ or tear apart double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the DNA that could interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.

Clothing and organic materials are translucent in most millimeter-wave bands. Perfect for detecting metal objects on subjects at airports, but not so great at picking up low-density materials such as plastic, chemicals or liquid which were some of the items used by the underwear bomber.

Full Body X-ray Scanners provide exceptionally clear views of subjects by combining data from multiple images, but increased exposure to X-rays can also cause mutation in DNA, leading to cancer. X-rays are considered ionizing (penetrating) radiation, ionizing radiation in any dose causes genetic mutations, which set all living cells exposed on the path to cancer. Cancers associated with high dose exposure include leukemia, breast, bladder, colon, liver, lung, esophagus, ovarian, multiple myeloma, prostate, nasal cavity/sinuses, pharyngeal, laryngeal, pancreatic and stomach cancers.

Whole body scans of healthy people will create more problems than they solve by exposing healthy people to radiation. The risk for radiation over-exposure may be small for a single subject, but the number subject exposed to airport body scans will increase the risk by the millions. A normal CT scan of the chest is the equivalent of about 100 chest X-rays. Some scanners are equivalent of 440 conventional X-rays. The traditional X-ray machine detects hard and soft materials by the variation in transmission through the target. The backscatter X-ray detects the radiation that reflects back from the target. Several studies have suggested that people have been unnecessarily exposed to radiation from CTs or have received excessive amounts of radiation. A person undergoing a backscatter scan receives approximately 0.005 – 0.009 millirems of radiation. 1 mrem per year is a negligible dose of radiation, and 25 mrem per year from a single source is the upper limit of safe radiation exposure. Widespread overuse of body scanners and variations in radiation caused by different machines could subject many to radiation doses that could ultimately lead to thousands of new cancer cases and deaths.
