BBC Hypes X-Ray Body Scanners

BBC promotes conventional x-ray technology to be used on only ’suspicious’ travelers at Newcastle Airport.

These X-ray scanners send a high-energy beam of particles called photons 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 photons that are only strong enough to pass through clothing producing the ‘blue alien [2]‘ image of the persons figure.

X-rays that penetrate the human body are extremely dangerous and can even be deadly [3], 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 [4], 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 [5], 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.
