There’s no health risk from the invasive scanners that the TSA has installed at airports around the country, the TSA has maintained. If you don’t like it, you can be searched in an inappropriately intimate way, or not allowed to fly. Now, the agency plans to begin testing the danger of these ‘safe’ machines, by having TSA agents wear dosimeters, devices that measure exposure to radiation over time. We guess you never know when a ‘safe’ machine might turn out to be, in fact, unsafe. So, not only have the new scanners not been shown to have stopped a single terrorist plot, but you may get cancer from participating in this worthless security theater.
