 Cancer Surges In Body Scanner Operators; TSA Launches Cover Up*Taken from Infowars. Video at link. Written by Paul Joseph Watson.

Fearful of provoking further public resistance to naked airport body scanners, the TSA has been caught covering up a surge in cases of TSA workers developing cancer as a result of their close proximity to radiation-firing devices, perhaps the most shocking revelation to emerge from the latest FOIA documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

After Union representatives in Boston discovered a “cancer cluster” amongst TSA workers linked with radiation from the body scanners, the TSA sought to downplay the matter and refused to issue employees with dosimeters to measure levels of exposure.

The documents indicate how, “A large number of workers have been falling victim to cancer, strokes and heart disease.”

“The Department, rather than acting on it, or explaining its position seems to have just dismissed. I don’t think that’s the way most other agencies would have acted in a similar situation if they were confronted with that question,” EPIC’s Marc Rotenberg said.

    Airport x-ray back-scatter scanners use an invisible intense collimated pencil beam of x-rays head to toe, delivering a large instantaneous exposure to the eyes, skin, breast, thyroid, ovaries and testicles. Scanner mfg have endeavored to hide the actual skin dose approx 1/20 th of a chest x-ray. A small yet significant exposure, a more serious risk to population’s hyper-sensitive to radiation such as children, elderly, fair-skinned and for 1 in 20 with DNA repair (BRCA gene) issues linked to breast cancer.
