Mike Adams of Natural News reports, June 28, 2011 that documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal “cancer clusters” are reported among TSA employees who work near the controversial full-body scanners.
At the same time, the Department of Homeland Security refuses to issue dosimeters to TSA agents because, obviously, those dosimeters would indicate alarming levels of radiation exposure.
Why are the body scanners causing cancer clusters among TSA employees?
As Natural News reported, DHS Director Janet Napolitano had lied about the safety of the devices, claiming that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) had “affirmed the safety” of them. But NIST fired back an email stating that NIST doesn’t test the safety of products at all! Ever! Therefore, all the claims that these devices were tested and confirmed as safe was complete B.S. from Napolitano. Just an outright lie.
Even though the NIST did not test the safety of these machines, it did warn airport screeners to avoid standing next to them because the machines clearly emitted doses of radiation that could mutate DNA and cause cancer.

Wikipedia says that full-body scanners utilize two types of technology:
- The millimeter wave scanner that reflects extremely high frequency radio waves off the body to make an image on which one can see some types of objects hidden under the clothes. Passive millimeter wave screening is known to be safe because its technology does not require radiating the subject.
- The backscatter X-ray, which utilizes radiation, “the true long-term health effects of the active, radiating technologies are unknown.”
