The lies and bulloop: continue!!!! The "standards" they cite were set by Rapiscan & TSA. And the "testing" was done by Rapiscan. Once again, no honest independent third-party evaluation. USA Today: Airport body scanners pass company's radiation tests (May 2 2013) Controversial full-body X-ray scanners at U.S. airports underwent more than 700 inspections last year with all tests showing radiation levels below standards used by their manufacturer and the Transportation Security Administration, according to a USA TODAY review of the recently released reports....USA TODAY reviewed the latest airport X-ray scanner inspection reports, which TSA recently posted on its website and said are a response to a February 2011 Freedom of Information Act request filed by the newspaper. USA TODAY filed the request after the agency refused repeated requests in the fall of 2010 — by the newspaper and members of Congress — to voluntarily release the reports....The radiation inspections, performed by Rapiscan employees and contractors, use a device to measure the amount of radiation delivered and whether it is less than the company's standard of 5 microrem.Kant noted that Rapiscan's inspection standard is far less than the 25 microrem per screening dose limit for such devices set by the American National Standards Institute. What medical authorities concur with this? The only standard I'm aware of is "no medically unnecessary x-rays". ANSI isn't my customary source of health & medical advice. Would you want a health consultation with the outfit that defines how your computer modem should function? The outside experts are already criticizing these latest "tests": But some scientists have said the device Rapiscan uses in its tests isn't designed to accurately measure the low-level radiation used by the scanners. "Their measurements are probably flawed," John Sedat, a professor emeritus of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco, said of the latest inspection reports. as they did with the earlier ones: The first batch of inspection reports, released by TSA in March 2011, were riddled with what the TSA and Rapiscan said were clerical and math errors that in some cases showed radiation levels 10 times higher than expected, USA TODAY reported at that time. The TSA had repeatedly assured the public and lawmakers that the machines had passed all inspections, but USA TODAY found that the agency hadn't reviewed the reports until after the newspaper began calling for their release. The TSA required Rapiscan to retrain its employees and contractors who conduct the radiation inspections.
