Naked body scanners may be dangerous: scientists

US scientists warned Friday that the full-body, graphic-image X-ray scanners that are being used to screen passengers and airline crews at airports around the country may be unsafe.

"They say the risk is minimal, but statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays," Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University school of medicine, told AFP.

(satire) Airport security must include a full psychological examination of tots due to the threat of "TERROR TOT TERMINAL TOE POINTING", a grave danger to air, as well as taxi, rail and bus passengers. Tots determined to be mentally unstable must have their feet/hands tied together and duct tape stuck on their mouth before boarding an aircraft, bus, train or taxi. Why? At any given moment a murderous tot may point his toe/finger at someone, say "bang bang" and presto, instant death.

IMO “TERROR TOT TERMINAL TOE POINTING” is more perilous than finger pointing snuffs. Unlike finger pointing assassinations which usually leave a clean powder burn residue on the victim, tootsie pointing snuffs can leave a stinky reeking toe jam residue.

Now when police investigators arrive at the crime scene they may be put off by this and shorten or abort the investigation allowing the perpetrator of the crime to KILL AGAIN.

Ambulance attendees may refuse to transfer the corpse to the morgue and morgue technicians may refuse to process it. So the primary question is, why have our tax dollars been spent on frivolous things instead of providing crime investigative teams and those in the health departments with vital things like stink masks?


Never mind the affliction

Bopperism is the cure

 Latest scientists’ discovery that graphic-image X-ray scanners could cause skin cancer – why … this is now worse than the legalized staring of sick Pepping Toms at those naked bodies in the airport!
