Sorry folks, I've not been on here for a while so I may have missed some discussion on this subject: -

Does anyone have any info about medical health versus radiation and / or human rights issues regarding the x ray body scanners being used ?

I know the government ( and of course the manufacturers) are preaching their safety, but does anyone else know any more ... Good news or bad news about them ?

The government is unmotivated by profit. I am inspired to get out of bed every single day based on their commitment to public health.

Yes, x-Rays give you cancer. It's not even a good idea to get them at the Dentist if can be avoided, let alone every time you travel.
