Exposure to radiotherapy or radiation-based diagnostics like computed tomography (CT scans) in early childhood increases breast cancer risk in adulthood, a new study in the Jan 2010 issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.

The study involved women exposed to thymic irradiation during infancy from 1926 to 1957. Breast cancer was identified in 96 treated in an average dose of 0.71 Gy and 57 untreated women during 159,459 person-year follow-up.

Adams MJ and colleagues from University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry found women who were treated by radiation were 200 percent more likely to develop breast cancer than those who did not receive radiation.

Higher doses of radiation were linked to high risk of breast cancer.

The researchers concluded that “at radiation doses between those received by the breast from chest CT and cancer therapy during early childhood, breast cancer incidence rates remain elevated >50 years after exposure.”

They wrote “This implies that increased breast cancer risk will remain a lifelong concern in females treated during childhood with currently reduced radiotherapy doses and for infants receiving multiple chest CTs.”

John Gofman, Ph.D. M.D. a distinguished nuclear physician, had reported much earlier that 75 percent of women with breast cancer were exposed to either diagnostic imaging, test or radiation therapy.

Ionizing radiations including x-ray used in medical diagnostics, mammogram screenings, air port whole body scanning, and cancer treatment are recognized by the U.S. National Toxicology Program as cancer-causing agents.

Breast cancer is diagnosed in more than 170,000 women each year in the United States and the disease kills about 50,000 annually in the country.

Breast cancer symptoms include a lump or thickening that feels different from the surrounding tissue, bloody discharge from the nipple, change in size and or shape of a breast, formation of dimples on the breast skin, inverted nipple, peeling or flaking of the nipple skin and redness on the breast skin like the skin of an orange, according to mayoclinic.com

Breast cancer treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy.

X-Ray Devices That Scan Your Body on the Streets

X-Ray Devices That Scan Your Body on the Streets

Naked body scanners are being readied to go mobile and scan you on the street, at football games and any other event where masses of people are congregated, according to a leaked paper written by Dutch authorities.

As we have been warning all along, the tyranny now being metered out at airports was always intended to be rolled out onto the streets, with mobile metal detectors already being stationed at various transport hubs in the UK in the name of stopping knife crime.

Now Dutch police have announced that they are developing a mobile scanner that will “see through people’s clothing and look for concealed weapons”.

According to a confidential document, “The scanner could first be used as an alternative to random body searches in high risk areas. The mobile detector would enable the search to be carried out more quickly and would only be used on people suspected of carrying concealed weapons,” reports Dutch News.nl.

The device would also be used from a distance on groups of people “and mass scans on crowds at events such as football matches.”

“The biggest challenge is making it portable and ensuring it can carry out a scan in seconds,” Giampiero Gerini, a professor at Eindhoven University, told the paper.

The aim is to develop and deploy the device within three years. With police in major American and British cities already carrying out random searches of innocent people under routinely abused terrorism laws, mobile scanners are likely to be added to their arsenal, especially if people have been trained to accept their use as routine in airports.

Three years ago, leaked documents out of the Home Office revealed that authorities in the UK were working on proposals to fit lamp posts with CCTV cameras that would X-ray scan passers-by and “undress them” in order to “trap terror suspects”.

“The questions are when is this a useful addition to security and when does it become unduly intrusive and worrying to the public?” said Professor Paul Wilkinson, a terrorism expert.

Since everything that we see being installed at the airports is now gradually being introduced on the streets, how long will it be before mind-reading devices that scan individuals for behavioral psychology, now being discussed for use in airports, are stationed on every major street corner?

The technologies now being prepared not just for the airport, but for our everyday lives, are far more frightening and technologically advanced than anything George Orwell wrote about in 1984. Unless we stand up in unison and say enough is enough, our world will become a literal hi-tech prison grid characterized by a caste system of slaves and controllers.

Airport Scanners That See Through Bodies

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.

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.
