TSA Screeners Getting Cancer from Naked Scanners

The TSA screeners are being diagnosed with cancer in abnormally high numbers. You remember. The scanners that allows the government to view an image of your naked body. The ones Janet Napolitano denies cause cancer, despite numerous studies claiming that there is cause for concern with these devices.

Even worse, they are trying to cover it all up. Or at best, downplay the whole thing.

It seems that a Union Representative notices a “cancer cluster” among the workers who spend much of their day around the machines.

The Electronic Provacy Information Center (EPIC) obtained documents through a FOIA lawsuit and the documents produces are alarming:

In a FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security, EPIC has just obtained documents concerning the radiation risks of TSA’s airport body scanner program. The documents include agency emails, radiation studies, memoranda of agreement concerning radiation testing programs, and results of some radiation tests. One document set reveals that even after TSA employees identified cancer clusters possibly linked to radiation exposure, the agency failed to issue employees dosimeters – safety devices that could assess the level of radiation exposure. Another document indicates that the DHS mischaracterized the findings of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, stating that NIST “affirmed the safety” of full body scanners. The documents obtained by EPIC reveal that NIST disputed that characterization and stated that the Institute did not, in fact, test the devices. Also, a Johns Hopkins University study revealed that radiation zones around body scanners could exceed the “General Public Dose Limit.”

It is absolutely amazing that the TSA Agents continue to work around these machines and do their master’s bidding. Molesting children, breast cancer survivors, mentally deficient adults and terminally ill grannies in wheel chairs is not a job anyone could possible be proud of doing.

And what of the frequent travelers who are forced into the eye of the radiation storm daily?

It is ironic that the TSA may eventually be responsible for more deaths from radiation than from terrorism (had they done nothing). There is now more than enough evidence that these machines are unsafe as well as being unconstitutionally invasive.

And the Government has been lying about the supposed safety testing of these devices:

“Another document indicates that the DHS mischaracterized the findings of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, stating that NIST ‘affirmed the safety’ of full body scanners.”

In fact, says EPIC, the documents show that NIST disputed this assertion and pointed out that the it had not actually tested the devices. Indeed, one NIST study actaully warns airport screeners to avoid standing next to full body scanners.

Further, says EPIC, the documents include a Johns Hopkins University study which revealed that radiation zones around body scanners could exceed the General Public Dose Limit.

In Japan, the government is doing everything it can to keep their citizens healthy in spite of the nuclear meltdown they experienced there. But here in America, the Obama Administration is exposing millions of Americans every day to potentially harmful doses of cancer-causing radiation.

We may not even make it to 2012.

    Los catalanes que no tienen más remedio que seguir siéndolo tienen todo nuestro respeto, y les deseamos que se las arreglen lo mejor posible para salvar Cataluña de esos iluminados como Laporta, de esos paisanos empeñados en extirparle la genética española a una tierra que no merece caer tan bajo: Cataluña, esa Cataluña que no pone a ningún hijo entre la espada en la pared, que no le obliga a partirse ni a odiar a nadie, que no resuelve sus problemas con barreras cambios de toponimia.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
