    I understand how you feel Mick but I would rather lessen the chances of me being blown to bits in the sky. I just can't be sure the scanners will just stay in the airports though?

    See I see it from the health risk point of view. If this is an x-ray then that is a radiation exposure and potentially could be dangerous for pregnant ladies or frequent fliers.

    I have no problem being eliminated as a security risk for a flight but not if it's going to damage my health.

    Im all for it if it tightens security and the risk of being blown up is less. If someone really is going to get their kicks from looking at me naked through a scanner, well they would need their heads read, im hardly supermodel material

    In theory they say you'd need to travel through the scanner 5000 times to be anywhere close to 1 normal hospital xray, so it shouldn't be a health risk.

    Its true re xrays - also a transatlantic flight is I believe equivalent to a number of chest xrays - can't remember how many darn brain won't work as due to altitude you are exposed to more atmospheric radiation anyway.

    THE important question it raises is WHEN will this technology be made avaliable in some sort of spectacle form?

    I would deal with it if I HAD to, although I wouldn't like it, but I would have a real big problem sending my kids though that scanner. A HUGE problem. I mean no one is going to put on their application that they enjoy looking at naked children, but I'm sure there will be many that apply for the job.

    There was a disclaimer in the article that said that passengers can refuse to be scanned. I for one am not sure I could even allow it. It states that it use electro magnetic waves which might possibly damage my ICD.
