    From all the images I've seen, and that wasn't many, it doesn't appear that the scan is too invasive.

    I looked in that TSA saved scans thread and the images weren't very descriptive.

    But even if they are...who fucking cares if someone looks at your junk through an x-ray if it means you'll be flying safely? Shit I'll whip my shit out in front of the entire airport if need be. The TSA assholes can go jerk off over it in the back office, I don't care.

    If it is harmful to your health, then that would be entirely different.

    Oh, is the TSA "guaranteeing" you are flying safely?

    "Invasive" is relative.

    Truth.

    Just sayin' I'm down for the scan as long as it is healthy.

    A random TSA story: I had a buddy who worked TSA in LaGuardia (I think). All they did was STEAL. This is way back when they just passed the liquid law. These motherfuckers stole everything. Wine, cologne, you name it. He had 4 shelves of half bottles of cologne in his house. He pretty much told me I could order whatever I wanted.

    He also told me all they did was goof off at work unless someone that looked like Arab entered the airport. Then they got the full treatment.

    A leading U.S. expert on the biological effects of X-radiation is Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Gofman's exhaustive research leads him to conclude that there is NO SAFE DOSE-LEVEL of ionizing radiation.13 His studies indicate that radiation from medical diagnostics and treatment is a causal co-factor in 50 percent of America's cancers and 60 percent of our ischemic (blood flow blockage) heart disease.14 He stresses that the frequency with which Americans are medically X-rayed "makes for a significant radiological impact."15

    This highly credentialed nuclear physicist states: "The fact, that X-ray doses are so seldom measured, reflects the false assumption that doses do not matter...[but] they do matter enormously. And each bit of additional dose matters, because any X-ray photon may be the one which sets in motion the high-speed, high energy electron which causes a carcinogenic or atherogenic [smooth muscle] mutation. Such mutations rarely disappear. The higher their accumulated number in a population, the higher will be the population's mortality rates from radiation-induced cancer and ischemic heart disease."16

    A report in the British medical journal Lancet noted that after breast mammograms were introduced in 1983, the incidence of ductal carcinoma (12 percent of breast cancer) increased by 328 percent, of which 200 percent was due to the use of mammography itself.17 A Lawrence Berkeley National Lab study has demonstrated that breast tissue is extremely susceptible to radiation-induced cancer,18 confirming warnings by numerous experts that mammograms can initiate the very cancers they may later identify.19 Dr. Gofman believes that medical radiation is a co-factor in 75 percent of breast cancer cases.20 So why would girls and women want their breast tissues irradiated every time they take a commercial flight?

    Cancer is number two cause of death in the U.S. behind heart disease. The more marathon walks and cookie eating contests we sponsor to fund the "war" on cancer, the more cancer we get. "America isn't winning the war on cancer after all," the Wall Street Journal recently reported.21 The National Cancer Institute admits that America's cancer rates in almost every category are rising steadily.22 Airline pilots and cabin crews suffer a significant incidence of leukemia, skin and breast cancer due to chromosomal damage from ionizing cosmic radiation encountered during years of flying at high altitudes.23

    Dr. Gofman's research reveals a dose-response relationship between medical X-rays and fatal heart disease, the number one killer of Americans. He found that X-radiation is a powerful atherogen, causing mutations in smooth muscle cells of coronary arteries. These radiation damaged cells are unable to process lipoproteins correctly, resulting in atherosclerotic plaques and mini tumors in the arteries.24 Radiation used to treat breast cancer can badly damage the heart.25

    As Dr. Gofman and other experts argue for improved diagnostic techniques and equipment to reduce medically necessary X-ray exposure, TSA gears up to impose frivolous, nonmusical exposure, even though conventional airline security measures have proven adequate since 9/11. To date, the National Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association have been silent about TSA's sinister plan to deliver unlimited doses of carcinogenic, mutagenic, heart damaging radiation to the flying public. No health studies are planned to gauge short and long-term effects of the radiation TSA will deliver to inspect our innards.

    Big Brother's zap madness is a predictable result of America's post 9-11 security hysteria. But here's the irony: Dr. Gofman says X- radiation has the effect of "grenades and small bombs" on human cells.26 If we permit TSA to continually "bomb" our DNA in the name of security, what have we accomplished?

    Well that's fine for you. The rest of us don't want to be porn stars and radiated.

    you do understand that the images aren't anything like that.

    and please don't speak for others....

    *I* happen to agree with him, and disagree with you, and last I checked, I am most certainly part of "the rest of us".

    if you object, feel free to allow them to pat you down... that is your right. otherwise, feel free to take the train.

    I understand that the images show a naked image of us.

    It's a figure of speech, take it easy.

    It's my right not to be fondled or exposed by the federal government, which has no authority to do either.
