Is The Airport Scanner Radiation Risky For Our Health?
Many of the people who constantly travel with airplanes are worried because of the radiation of the total body scan in the controlling places.
The experts claim that these doses of radiation are minimal: the effects of the total body scan radiation are the same as two minutes flight with the airplane. The energy emitted by the technology of the electromagnetic waves is 10 000 times smaller than the transmission of the mobile phones.
What about the privacy violation? The filter hides the face, and there is a ward that blocks printing, keeping and transfer of photographs of the travelers. Besides that, the employee that makes the scanning is situated in a special cabin and never gets in contact with the traveler. After all, the travelers that mind this kind of control are allowed to refuse the procedure. In that case they get a classical search through their clothes.
