Testing on lab rats

When polled, flyers across the nation are concerned about the long term effects from the full body scans being conducted in airports.

One long term frequent flyer voiced his worries, "when I go to the dentist they drape me in lead, how's this different"?

Is it a hazzard to your health? We don't think so.

"The TSA, reports the amount of radiation you're exposed to during a two-second millimeter-wave scan exposes you to radio-wave radiation that is 10,000 times less powerful than radiation levels that pulse from a cellphone." The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement "found that a traveler subjected to at least 2,500 backscatter scans per year would barely reach the Negligible Individual Dose."

While the results are preliminary, a study conducted by Hons Jopkins University has revealed there are indeed some undesirable side effects to prolonged exposure to backscatter technology. Some of these include, sleeplessness, rectal itch, diarrea, searing headaches, genital warts and thoughts of suicide.

While the results are not etched in stone and are preliminary, no one will actually know for sure until the human guinea pig tests are in.
