Naked Body Scanners Soon To Be Used In UK

Quote:
Controversial 'naked' body scanners could be introduced at all UK airports after top scientists declared them safe.
Manchester Airport has been trialling the device - known as back scatter scanner - since 2009, but the European Commission halted new trials last year amid concerns there was a risk to passengers' health from high levels of radiation.
But an EU study has decided that the risk from the scanners, which use X-rays to scan through clothing to produce images of passengers, is 'close to zero' and no greater than other factors.



A report said the radiation from a single passenger scan is 'equivalent' to the natural background radiation received within an hour on the ground or during ten minutes on a flight.
It added that the doses per scan were 'well below the public dose limit', although the long-terms effects, such as cancer risks, could not be dismissed entirely.



The European Commission is now expected to approve the technology and the scanners could be rolled out to other UK and European airports.
Extensive tests by the UK Health Protection Agency and US health authorities had already confirmed the scanners pose a negligible risk to human health.
But report by Dr David Brenner, director of the Centre for Radiological Research at Columbia University Medical Centre in New York, claimed that radiation from the scanners may be causing an extra 100 cases of cancer in Americans each year.
A Manchester Airport spokesman said: 'We've been waiting for this report which, in summary, says the scanners are safe.
'We knew the report would say this because the UK and U.S. government had already carried out studies and concluded the same thing.
'The EU took a bit longer about it.'
Last November, the EU adopted new guidelines on body scanners after concerns about privacy.
It meant security scanners could not store or copy any of the images and security staff analyzing the images had to be in separate room from where the actual screening was taking place.
In addition, passengers were the given the right to choose an alternative method of screening.
EU states have been mulling the use of security scanners ever since Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 24-year-old Nigerian, attempted in 2009 to blow up a plane flying from Amsterdam to Detroit with plastic explosives he had hidden in his underwear.

Re: Naked Body Scanners Soon To Be Used In UK

The last time I flew a couple months ago I was determined to avoid these things for numerous reasons. I easily avoided going through them or a pat down. Airport security is a joke, at least at the second busiest airport of its class in the world. Metal detectors and the sniffing machines are much better than these. They're a waste of money, everyone's time and give many a false sense of security.

Airport security has always been a joke. I brought 10 grams of hash back from Spain without even realizing it for a week and a half.

I'd tape a 2 foot dildo to my dick and walk through with head held high.

Kelly I know you didn't make the images in this post, but obviously that first one of the blonde woman is not her as she has her arms at her side and in the scan images they are out.

They can scan me if they like. If they wanna sit there and laugh at my bits then let 'em. They need something to lighten up a boring day I guess. Just went through Heathrow actually, a week ago and we had to walk through these scanner things and hold our arms out to the side,.... didn't think about it then,...but now I wonder if they have ALREADY scanned my naked body,

You know I am willing to put a metal shaped penis in my pants and fuck with them.

I will black myself up too and talk like a Jamaican.

Lets see them make me drop my pants!
