Your health is at risk. We have to reject this type of security screening now, before it leads to the further degeneration of our health, and its tremendous repercussions on the American healthcare system.
Yes, you have the right to refuse the airport x-ray scan. How? When you are in line, tell the TSA: "I prefer to get the Pat-Down," NOT the x-ray. It's really as simple as that. You're not a criminal, and this is still America. They can't force this on you.By now, many airports, like LAX in Los Angeles, have replaced these dangerous scatter x-ray scanners with "milimeter wave" technology, which is not ionizing radiation—so it seems like less of a hazard, but it's not that simple. I'll bet you don't know what "millimeter wave" means, right? That's on purpose by all who promote this newer technology. Everybody knows what microwave is, right? Well, "millimeter wave" uses higher frequencies than microwave, with frequencies that boggle the brain: 30 GigaHertz to 300 GigaHertz. How "safe" is that? Your decision.
