'Naked' airport scanners that see EVERYTHING banned... over fears they give passengers cancer.
Europe has banned controversial airport 'strip-searches' over fears the X-ray technology could cause cancer.

'Experts have found the scanners remit low doses of radiation and the EU has told member states not to install them until the potential risks are assessed.

Millions of people worldwide are believed to have passed through the security scanners. In the UK passengers are required to do so if asked.'





'Manchester Airport, which has 16 of the £80,000 'backscatter' machines, has been told it can continue using them for another year.

However, no new machines will be allowed to 'protect citizens' health and safety'.'


'The body scanners were introduced in a security crackdown after incidents such as the attempted 'underwear bomb' plot in 2009.

They were used at Heathrow but scrapped amid complaints about invasion of privacy. They have also been tested in Germany, France, Italy, Finland and Holland but will be completely banned in April if experts rule they are dangerous.'


 IN OTHER WORDS THEY'LL STILL BE BEING USED, with impunity, with Scientific assurances from 'Experts' and MORE CAN BE INSTALLED on that premise.



'Research suggests up to 100 U.S. airline passengers a year could get cancer from the scanners.

Britain, which argues the scans are a 'proportionate response to a very real terrorist threat', could be hit with a fine from the European courts if it ignores the ban.

The Health Protection Agency said: 'The radiation dose from an examination of two or three scans is less than that received from two minutes flying at cruising altitude.'
 
EU Transport Commissioner Siim Kallas says there should be strict safeguards on the use of scanners


EU Transport Commissionair, SLIM KALLAS (sic).

 Would you trust this John Cleese Type Impersonator to decide on your radiation exposure ... or for Full Scanner Sourced Sex-Instruction Video collection, for Airport Preverts in Blue Coats?


At Manchester passengers selected for scanning are banned from flying if they refuse to pass through the device.

The airport says around 10 passengers have been unable to board their flight after refusing the scan.

A spokesperson for the airport said: 'Extensive tests by the UK Health Protection Agency and the US health authorities have already confirmed that back scatter body scanners pose a negligible risk to human health.

'It is irresponsible to suggest that because Europe has yet to complete its own health study, our passengers should be concerned.

'European legislation issued this week has approved millimetre wave, another form of body scanner technology, for permanent use at airports.

'While its study is underway, an extension of the trial of back scatter body scanners at Manchester Airport has been approved by the European Commission until November 2012.

''Given that all of the relevant authorities support the use of back scatter body scanners, the trial will continue.'

The EU has ruled only security scanners which do not use X-ray technology are approved for use.

The use is only allowed as long as the scanners do not store, retain, copy, print or retrieve images.

Vice-President Siim Kallas, the Commissioner responsible for transport, defended the ban.

He said: 'Security scanners are not a panacea but they do offer a real possibility to reinforce passenger security.

'Security scanners are a valuable alternative to existing screening methods and are very efficient in detecting both metallic and non-metallic objects.

'It is still for each member state or airport to decide whether or not to deploy security scanners, but these new rules ensure that where this new technology is used it will be covered by EU wide standards on detection capability as well as strict safeguards to protect health and fundamental rights.

'Experience to date shows that passengers and staff generally see security scanners as a convenient method of screening.'

In the U.S. the Transportation Security Administration body scanners sparked a heated debate over security concerns versus travellers' privacy when they were first brought in autumn 2010.

In response, New Jersey's legislature issued a resolution urging Congress to review the program.

In November 2010 a female passenger claimed she was made to feel like a terrorist for bringing breast milk she had pumped earlier through security at Phoenix airport.

Stacey Armato had 12 ounces of breast milk with her and as per TSA guidelines, she requested the milk not be passed through the X-ray scanner because of possible radiation.

Last month, a TSA agent faced dismissal after finding sex toy in woman's bag and leaving her a note saying: 'Get your freak on girl'.'

 ... And remember folky-folks. These machines are typical of, in Pavlovian-Dog Style, an attempt to Toilet Train or aclimatise air-passengers into being screened prior to transport to destinations and arrival at ... other destinations, such as now occurs with so-called "Pat-Downs" on arrival on 'US-soil' after leaving Manchester airport UK, and having a back-scatter scan there to start with.

By 'Other Destinations' I mean such as like concentration camps, cum labour-camps, cum extermation-camps.

For 'sure as eggs is eggs', those days will revisit us under the present regimen of total self-serving political corruption.

Maybe not this decade, maybe not next year, maybe not tomorrow. But toilet training usually is done with immediate intention to intervene in the activities of the gormless public that stalk the earth ... huh?
