Are airport body scanners good for you?

Posted in: News | No Comments | Posted on by Jim


During the Cold War of the 1950s and 60s, we were told by the authorities that radiation was bad and given helpful hints on how to counteract radiation in time of war. Placing newspapers over our heads was one preferred method. Are we smarter today after the experiences of Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima? Apparently not. Now the authorities tell us that being bombarded by radiation at the airport is perfectly safe and that products from Japan are really okay. Here is a dissenting opinion which you will not see in the corporate mass media.



Are airport body scanners good for you?

I find it very amusing and sometimes irritating, when we stand in line at the airport and we are herded through security like cattle. With strategically-placed, marketing signs and videos – we are being told that radiation from the airport body scanners are very “safe” and there’s no reason to worry about our health.

So let’s ask the obvious question. Since when is any level of radiation safe? Professor Edward P. Radford, physician and epidemiologist has said: “There is no safe dose of radiation”. And, the TSA says “no problem”…hmmm – who can I trust?

We are bombarded every day with radiation from the cosmos, radio waves from telecommunication sources, EMF pollution from cell towers, cell phones and computers. Then if you microwave your food … more about that one later!

Radiation, in all its forms, displaces electrons, breaks molecular bonds, creates free radicals and ultimately creates DNA damage.

DNA damage leads to dis-ease and cancer, which is a very established scientific fact. The recent events of Fukushima have reminded us how fragile and interdependent we really are. Those broken reactors have spewed radiation particles which have a half life of thousands of years, into the air and in the ocean.

According to Yahoo news, scientists have recently discovered radiation from Fukushima in bluefin tuna. “We were frankly kind of startled,” Fisher tells The Associated Press. “That’s a big ocean. To swim across it and still retain these radionuclides is pretty amazing.”

What is amazing is that public officials are not sounding out the warning that we should not be ingesting food that has radioactive particles in it.

It is very sobering to think that this radiation has already affected the food chain in the oceans. But then if we add the effects from the nuclear particles in the air that are being spread through the jet streams, then we begin to see how the whole food chain is affected.

The radiation falls with the rain, which is absorbed by the plants, which is eaten by the animals which is ingest by us…the homo sapiens at the top of the food chain.

So how do we protect ourselves from this modern day silent plague that is not being announced on the news?

Here are a few things that you can do to mitigate the effects of the radiation on your body:

1. Iodine supplements that contains a potassium iodide and iodine, helps to protect the thyroid by keeping the hormone receptors full, so that the radioactive iodine will then have no room to land. Check your Iodine levels to see how deficient you are before you begin supplementation.

2. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant and is a free radical scavenger: Take at least 5000 mgs of Vitamin C every day.

3. Chlorella has a unique ability to bind with heavy metals and other toxins. Studies conducted in India in 1995 reported the radio-protective effect chlorella had on animals suffering from radiation exposure.

4. Trace minerals like selenium and zinc provide protection.

5. Plant based antioxidants that can be found in resveratrol and Curcumin are very powerful.

Obviously, it is impossible to avoid radiation because it has engulfed our planet. But you can take a few simple steps to insure that your body has the capacity to detoxify and repair the damage from daily exposure to radiation.
