As if the threat of totalitarianism weren’t enough, now it turns out that the full body scanners used for screening in airports cause significant damage to the DNA of those being scanned and those who operate the equipment.
Researchers from the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico show how the radiation emitted by the TSA’s scanners “may significantly affect the natural dynamics of DNA, and thereby influence intricate molecular processes involved in gene expression and DNA replication.”
Forget that these new security measures are not very effective, what with all the 12″ razor blades and loaded guns getting through. We already knew most of these new steps amount to security theater, anyway.
But here we have a concrete reason for everyone to protest against these scanners: THEY ARE DAMAGING OUR GENETIC MAKEUP!
Security checkpoints that alter our DNA. Is there any greater threat to future generations? Yes…these toys.
