Will airport searches become a choice between invasive groping and real cancer risks?

Dec 07, 2011 Will airport searches become a choice between invasive groping and real cancer risks?

The unconstitutionally invasive airport full-body scanners are not only an affront to civil liberties, but also may pose a real cancer risk.

Although disagreements exsit among scientists about how great is the cancer risk, according to ProPublica, a "study by David Brenner, director of Columbia University’s Center for Radiological Research, estimated that as airlines approach a billion boardings per year in the United States, 100 additional cancers per year could result from the scanners."

Rather than our facing a choice between cancer exposure from the full body scanners and invasive groping if the scanner is declined, let us raise our voices to reverse the civil liberties violations of such invasive airport searches.
