Re: TSA Dumps Near-Naked Rapiscan Body Scanners

If I understand the article they are keeping the other full-body scanners made by the other company since it produces "cartoon-like stick figures". So radiation is still a go!

Actually, the scanners' radiation turns people into "cartoon-like stick figures". Reality based TV horror show to follow.

I think you've got the point here...

No, the ones TSA is keeping (millimeter wave) do not cause radiation problems. TSA has known this from the beginning but they wanted (were ordered?) to have 50% of each brand of scanner in the airports. Luckily, in Hawaii only the first airport (one of the very first in the nation) to get a scanner got the RapidScan. Honolulu, Maui, Hilo and Kona got the safe one.

You should change that to "are not known to cause radiation problems". The Rapidwaves used X-Rays which are known to cause cancer, the MMW scanners like L-3 uses still emit radiation but at lower frequencies closer to that of a microwave oven. I have no doubt that they have a negative effect on health, just not as much as the X-Ray units.
